Succeeding in the health care management industry is no small task. Complex and constantly changing health care regulations from federal, state and local regulatory agencies intended to ensure safe and quality care actually can have a reverse effect — regulatory compliance often takes time away from patient care.
“It’s a challenging environment to operate in,” says Providence Healthcare Management founder and CEO Eli Gunzburg. “Our industry has completely transformed.”
Health care is one of the top three most regulated industries in the country along with finance and nuclear. “Sometimes the intent of those regulations is good but they don’t quite hit it on the head,” says Gunzburg, a Case Western Reserve University alum who founded Providence Healthcare Management in 2008.
