Laura Jacquin, RN, MBA Promoted to Partner at Prism Healthcare Partners
CHICAGO (March 25, 2016) – Prism Healthcare Partners LTD, a national healthcare management consulting firm, has expanded the firm’s senior leadership team with the promotion of Laura Jacquin, RN, MBA to Partner, reflecting her outstanding contributions to Prism’s growth and client service delivery.
“Laura has demonstrated exemplary performance and leadership at Prism. Her deep clinical operations expertise and unwavering commitment to excellent service have been instrumental in helping healthcare organizations implement significant clinical and financial performance improvements,” said Mukesh Gangwal, President and Chief Executive Officer of Prism. “As Prism continues to grow, Laura will be essential to advancing the firm’s strategy and expanding Prism’s service offerings to meet healthcare providers’ evolving needs.”
Jacquin joined Prism in 2014 as Managing Director. An expert in clinical performance and clinical documentation improvement (CDI), she built the firm’s CDI practice and methodology. CDI is critical today as healthcare providers are compensated and penalized on quality measures and outcomes reporting. With Jacquin at the helm, Prism’s CDI team has helped clients across the country, including regional health systems and a major academic medical center, improve reimbursement, reduce penalties and align clinical operations to the revenue cycle. Jacquin also developed methodology and programs for organizations to recruit and retain top talent, a core component of successful and sustainable clinical documentation programs.
“My experience at Prism has been wonderful, and I have received tremendous support from the firm’s leadership. They truly have a vision for serving the healthcare community,” commented Jacquin. “I am excited for the opportunity to join the management team and look forward to working closely with the firm’s leaders to drive Prism’s strategy and further its dedication to exceptional client solutions and staff advancement.”
“We are thrilled to recognize Laura’s tremendous accomplishments. She is a terrific addition to Prism’s senior leadership, and her valuable expertise, insights and ideas will propel the firm’s growth and success,” said David Shade, Chairman of Prism.
Jacquin’s healthcare career spans more than 25 years and includes experience as a clinician as well as leadership roles with both providers and consulting firms. She holds a Masters of Business Administration in finance from the University of Indianapolis and a Bachelor of Science in nursing at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.
