Neil has spent 30 years in all phases of HR. He trained staff at Motorola in the early stages of 6 Sigma. He rolled out quality improvement training at Brigham and Women’s Hospital soon after the 3 hospitals merged. He has a BA and MA in Psychology. As a benefits consultant, he has seen that helping employers move to less costly plans is like moving deck chairs on the Titanic. The way the consumer can help with spiraling healthcare costs is by becoming a smarter shopper. Providing powerful transparency tools is key to that goal.
