Working to change healthcare policy for better alignment of both financial and quality outcomes for providers, patients and payers
Dr. Paul Grundy, retired IBM Global Director, Healthcare Transformation stated that "The worlds foremost expert on Real 'Pharmacy of the Future' and the integration of that into a working delivery system is Dr. Terry McInnis."
“Dear Terry….As usual, you knocked it out of the ballpark!..... Many, many thanks! Dyan” (Women-in-Government – January 2014 State Directors Meeting - “Best Practices and What works in Coordinate Care Legislation” presentation)
Dr. McInnis served in the USAF during Desert shield/storm as Chief of Flight Medicine- Patrick AFB supporting 38 launches and landings of the space shuttle, participating in 3 life-saving air-sea rescues earning the air medal and a meritorious service medal
Dr. McInnis continues to contribute to the evidence in "addressing the issue of the decade" namely, non-optimized drug therapy. As co-author of the article which is cited more often in policy than any other to inform the debate on the cost both in $$$$ and lives, she continues to work with clients across the spectrum to save the estimated 16% of total US healthcare cost in 2016- an astounding $528Billion in waste.
Educating the next generation of healthcare leaders is critical. It was a distinct honor to keynote this graduation in 2017. Presenting/lecturing with students and faculty at the Univ. of CO, TX, UNC, Campbell, Duke MBA- Fuqua, and others is always a bi-directional learning experience. Pass it on!
