Vice President of Sales and Marketing
“I get to make a difference,” Ellen shares. “Not just to the director of nursing who didn’t have to write that plan of correction because they were able to preemptively fix a problem, but also to the resident who got to choose what they wanted to eat or who participated in an activity they enjoyed. There aren’t many sales and marketing people that get to affect people’s lives in such a positive way.”
Ellen is not your typical sales and marketing person. Her professional background has always centered on regulatory compliance, or as she puts it, “Helping people figure out how to wrap their arms around what they are supposed to do.” She realizes that no care provider goes into their line of work because they enjoy regulations and surveys. They do what they do because they love helping people. And while the survey is a necessary component of long-term care, it can be extremely overwhelming and stressful to a provider. By introducing clients to Providigm solutions, Ellen loves being able to lift that weight off of their shoulders.
From the beginning, Ellen saw that by creating a tool to help providers comply with regulations, residents would ultimately receive better care. Her understanding and passion for Providigm’s vision has been integral to driving the company’s transformation to serving a wider range of health care providers.
