Dynamic Public Speaker

Ed Gamache has completed  more than 50 formal presentations on healthcare quality, policy, and  developing an effective organizational value proposition. He has made a  career of observing the US healthcare system and frequently shares his  observations of reality and opportunity to change the industry that  drives nearly one fifth of the economy.

Presentations are fresh  with ever changing content and reflect the most up to date information  and concepts.  Data and information sources are reliable and valid  including the Commonwealth Fund data site, Kaiser Family Foundation,  Medicare open source, Dartmouth Atlas for Healthcare and his own real  life experiences.

His concepts are more than provocative, they  challenge the status quo of the current system that has been built by  the very political system that now criticizes and plans on reforming  what they describe as out of control. 

His ability to articulate  the weaknesses of current efforts to use quality performance measures in  small rural hospitals has given him national recognition for his  expertise and vision of what needs to change, how it needs to change and  what needs to happen.

Most importantly, he has the  ability to tailor and make unique his presentations for each audience.   He always receives good evaluations that most frequently hear from  attendees, “I just like to hear you speak"
