Teresa joined Graham Healthcare Group in 2009 with the Edward Health System Joint Venture. Under her leadership, the home health census grew from 80 to 600 patients and earned top quality (4 star) ratings.
Her roles and responsibilities include development, execution, and ongoing support of home health, hospice, and palliative care clinical integration with health system partners across the system’s full continuum to improve patient experience and outcomes; leading quality and performance improvement efforts for home health, hospice, and palliative care; and developing innovative solutions to support health system initiatives including value-based care and population health.
Certified in Integrated Chronic Care Management, Teresa loves her role because it gives her the opportunity to work across the care continuum with all stakeholders to extend highly reliable care pathways into patient homes.
Teresa brings experience from a wide range of nursing roles in academic and community settings, beginning as a front-line nurse and advancing to nurse manager and then into senior leadership positions.
