A Shout-Out with Congrats to Hope Rachel Hetico

Professor of the Year – and – Birthday Greetings

 From the Medical Executive-Post Staff 

hetico3As a Distinguished Assistant Professor of Health Policy and Administration, our own Hope Rachel Hetico was named Professor-of-the-Year [second time] at the Atlanta Georgia campus of the University of Phoenix, Graduate School of Business and Management.

Yet, we are not surprised. Hope is a fiercely independent thinker, and while we don’t always see-eye-to-eye, we wanted to congratulate her and highlight some of her contributions to the industry and our endeavors. And today, January 11th, is also her birthday; so Mazel-Tov.

Early Endeavors

Hope received her nursing degree (RN) from Valpariso University and her Master of Science Degree in Healthcare Administration (MSHA) from the College of St. Francis, in Joliette, Illinois. She is author’s editor of a dozen major textbooks, chapters and white-papers and is a nationally known speaker and expert in managed care, medical reimbursement, case management, health insurance, utilization review, National Association of Healthcare Quality (NAHQ), Health Education Data Information Set (HEDIS), and Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) rules and regulations. She was also national corporate Director for Medical Quality Improvement at Apria Healthcare, a public company in Costa Mesa, California.

Current Career

Prior to joining iMBA Inc., as Chief Operating Officer, Ms. Hetico was a hospital executive, financial advisor, insurance agent, and a Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality™ (CPHQ) www.MedicalBusinessAdvisors.com. Currently, she is a senior linguistic docent for the www.HealthDictionarySeries.com wiki-project and devotee of health information technology and andragogy. Hope is also responsible for leading www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.com to the top of the exploding adult educational marketplace, expanding the online and on-ground Certified Medical Planner™ charter designation program, and nurturing the company’s rapidly growing list of financial, medical and institutional clients.

And, a Managing Editor, too!

Oh; did we mention that Hope is also managing-editor of Healthcare Organizations [Journal of Financial Management Strategies], our 2-volume – 1,200 pages – quarterly institutional subscription print guide; www.HealthcareFinancials.com?

A Toast 

 And so, hats-off to Hope Hetico; Professor of the Year! Whatever one thinks of her protean style, there is little doubt that she has been as responsible for the growth of this blog and communications forum, as anyone. And, as a traditional Polish-language birthday-cheer, we wish her “Sto-Lot”; or life to 100!

Let’s Par..tay

Come on. It’s a Celebration. Here’s to you Hope? Enjoy your party. The Margarita’s are on us!
