Meet Matt Davis--He's a Second Generation Home Health and Hospice Professional
MHA has a new business development lead! We're proud to introduce you to Matt Davis!
While his official industry experience amounts to more than 10 years -- most recently as an MHA home health and hospice consultant -- Matt's unofficial experience is practically life long. Growing up, his parents both worked in home health agencies and Matt started helping out, with everything from janitorial work to IT, at a young age.
As MHA's business development manager, Matt's mission is to serve home health and hospice agencies by connecting them with subject matter experts, solutions and technology partners to help them solve industry-wide issues, gain efficiencies and ultimately increase their level of patient care.
Prior to joining MHA, Matt served as a medical supply account manager at the largest medical supply distributer. Additionally, he and his wife launched and operated a DME business.
Matt holds a bachelor's in business from Mississippi state.
Quick plug: If you're looking for home health and hospice consulting help, reach out to Matt here. He's ready to chat with you about EMR implementations, optimizations, M&A services, PDGM prep or any other services your agency may need.
Here's a quick Q&A to help you get to know Matt better:
Q: What do you like to do when you're not working?
A: I love hanging out with my wife (shout out to Ashley who is also a part of the MHA crew) and five children. We're an active family of seven between soccer, volleyball, school events and working on our family land. One other hobby I look forward to is serving in a special needs program at my church. It allows parents to enjoy service while their kids are taken care of by church volunteers.
Q: Why are you passionate about the work you do in home health and hospice care?
A: As mentioned earlier in the post, I grew up in the industry (my parents both worked in agencies). For as long as I can remember, I’ve seen the joy and comfort home health and hospice clinicians bring patients and their families. Also, as a Maxwell consultant I had the honor of working with so many hardworking and impassioned home health and hospice operators, leaders and clinicians. The experience further solidified my love and respect for the people and mission in the home health and hospice space.
Q: What trends/challenges/opportunities do you see in the industry?
A: PDGM is undoubtedly going to cause industry-wide disruption. However, disruption brings opportunity -- an opportunity to become more efficient and dynamic. You can accomplish the first (becoming efficient) through examining and refining your processes and the second (becoming dynamic) by partnering with innovators throughout the continuum of care. Those who will not only survive but thrive during this transition will gain new efficiencies that will help deliver heightened patient care while eliminating waste. This is why it's crucial for agencies to partner with industry experts who can help them navigate through these difficult waters.
The Maxwell team is serving agencies across the country -- working hand in hand with their team members to help them augment their people, processes and technology in preparation for 2020. That’s why I am excited to be able to serve as Maxwell's business development manager. We bring innovators and experts to agencies and help their people tackle the hard problems that face our industry. I'm looking forward to establishing those partnerships with agencies who need an extra hand during this time. Together, we can turn disruption into opportunity.
Please, feel free to reach out to me at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm happy to chat with you about the challenges your agencies is facing and serve as a helpful resource to you and your team.
