Al Head, MD
Al Head is the principal and founder of AHEAD Healthcare Consulting. After 20 years of experience as a practicing physician and 11 years serving as an academic department chairman and director of a perioperative service line for a health system, it became clear to Dr. Head that the current healthcare system was not sustainable without significant changes. Reimbursements were declining while quality measures and regulatory services were increasing, and healthcare organizations needed guidance on how best to navigate this paradigm shift. Dr. Head founded AHEAD Healthcare Consulting as a response to this need. His extensive experience in medicine and deep understanding of the rapidly changing healthcare environment make him well equipped to help organizations transition and thrive in this new environment.
