  • “Maureen has helped us increase from a 1-star in Quality Measures and today we are a mere 5 points from a 4-star. She has also assisted us with survey preparation, in order to improve our survey star rating as well. Her services are highly recommended and my only regret is that we did not implement services quickly enough when started seeing problems. If we had, we could have been included in the ACO we were trying to be considered for. If you are starting to see potential issues with your quality metrics, contact her right away! Maureen and her team not only report findings, they assist us in correcting the issues and improving our performance. Celtic Consulting provides the ‘whole package’.”
