Meghan Nechrebecki is a healthcare administration expert who has been solving complex systemic healthcare challenges for close to a decade. Using the Health Care Transformation ‘Triple Aim +1’ philosophy, she is dedicated to using her vast experience and proven methodologies to drastically improve health care in the United States for millions of Americans.
Her philosophy is that we must use data, the care transformation methodology, and education to engage and empower individuals and health care professionals– both in leadership roles and on the front lines– to play a vital role in achieving these goals of reducing healthcare costs, improving quality, and enhancing the patient and provider experience.
Let’s work together to make health care more effective and efficient in the U.S. and across the world.
In her work on health care systems improvement, Meghan has found two vital components that are necessary to improve health outcomes and reduce cost:
- Patient Engagement: This means you!! Because at some point both ourselves and our loved ones will become a patient; therefore we need to understand how to navigate the system to receive the best care possible. This is why Meghan has created Health Care Transformation- For the People. The goal is to educate and empower you to make the best decisions for you and your loved ones.
- Provider Engagement: This means healthcare professionals at the frontlines of patient care– nurses, medical assistants, front desk staff, doctors, call center staff, care coordinators– along with their healthcare administrators and leaders. This is why Meghan has created Health Care Transformation- For Health Care Professionals— to share expertise and methodology for care transformation with healthcare leaders and providers on the frontlines to make a meaningful and positive impact on patient care.
The inspiration for Health Care Improvement:
The U.S. has the highest costs while having poor health outcomes in comparison to every other developed country in the world. In fact, there is a very famous report from The Commonwealth Fund entitled “Mirror Mirror on the Wall” which states that although the U.S. has the most expensive health care system in the world, we rank lowest in terms of health outcomes, equity, and efficiency when compared to eleven other industrialized nations.

“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”
Through her gained knowledge and experience at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore Meghan decided to forego becoming a physician because she found her calling: to become a healthcare administration expert who will utilize and enhance systems improvement methodologies to improve the U.S. Health Care system in order to achieve the Triple Aim+1.
