Professional Philosophy

Andre’s professional passion focuses on modern day healthcare redesign strategies. He believes strongly in an “agile” management style so leaders can develop and function to their fullest capacity, and teams can adapt to rapid market fluctuations in a similar fashion.

He is an advocate for transformational and transparent activities beyond the current state of healthcare, along with a renewed mindset towards truly integrated practice patterns, all designed in a Patient centric manner.

From an actuarial perspective, Andre believes that the future models for effective healthcare delivery platforms are yet to be developed. As such, one has the ability to be truly creative and innovative, as long as you operate from a sound foundational platform. Data and Informatics are key determinants of success when effectively integrated with applied and timely execution of qualitative management decisions.

Growth creates strain – it is a normal component of healthy environments. The ability to navigate opportunities and simultaneously achieve consistent and optimal outcomes should always define organizational success.
