Fazzi Associates president brings 20+ years of experience to newly created CCO position and advances WellSky’s vision for a highly trained workforce in health and community care
LENEXA, Kan. — Jan. 3, 2019 — WellSky, a leading health and community care technology company backed by TPG Capital, today announced that Tim Ashe, president of Fazzi Associates, has been promoted to chief clinical officer (CCO). Ashe will continue to serve as both Fazzi president and WellSky’s CCO.
Ashe has served in multiple roles at Fazzi Associates since 2007 and holds an extensive clinical background as an advanced practice nurse, nurse educator, and nurse manager. As Fazzi’s president, he has led the firm’s mission to make a real difference in health care by strengthening the quality, value, and impact of health care at home. Since Fazzi’s acquisition by WellSky in 2018, Ashe has expanded this mission to span the care continuum and all clients served by WellSky.
“WellSky understands the importance of developing software that not only meets regulatory requirements, but also delivers clinical outcomes that improve the patient experience, better the overall health of populations, and reduce costs,” said Ashe. “Technology must enable safer, more efficient care without serving as a distraction for frontline practitioners, and as CCO, I’m dedicated to ensuring our clients can focus on their core business of delivering exceptional care.”
Championing the voices of clinicians is a priority for Ashe as WellSky continues to develop innovative technology and offerings that have meaningful applications for providers and patients. Ashe will have an ongoing dialogue with clients and the company’s product development leaders to gain insights and share clinical knowledge.
“We’re a partner that listens to our clients and introduces innovation and education that helps our clients overcome their toughest challenges,” said Bill Miller, CEO of WellSky. “Tim’s comprehensive knowledge of health care makes him the right person for the chief clinical officer role. His career includes a rare range of clinical, operational, fiscal, and academic roles. It’s Tim’s breadth of experience and deep understanding of practical applications that will help our clients deliver improved care and enhanced outcomes for patients.”
A critical part of WellSky’s larger mission of realizing care’s potential is delivering high quality industry education and thought leadership to clients. By providing resources to help clients meet regulatory standards and understand the latest industry developments, WellSky is a partner in enabling better care.
Ashe was the co-director of the latest National State of the Industry Report™ and has co-directed many of Fazzi’s prior national studies. He is also currently a board member of the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts.
Ashe earned his Master of Business Administration and Master of Science degrees from the University of Rochester, a Bachelor of Skilled Nursing degree from St. John Fisher College, and a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Nazareth College.
