Dr. Bill Katz brings more than 45 years of successful health care management and financial consulting experience serving medical schools, medical group practices, physician-hospital organizations, financial institutions, hospitals, long term care facilities, health insurers, governments, and medical products companies. He was previously employed by Arthur D. Little, Inc. and two international CPA firms in their management consulting divisions.
In recent years, Bill has focused his financial consulting work on litigation support, revenue enhancement and cost containment. Dr. Katz has served as an expert witness for providers in health care cases involving billing issues, lost profits, damages, and valuations and for an insurance company in determining the reasonable value of medical professional services in automobile injury cases. He has also served as an independent expert to project the lifetime cost of medical and related life needs services for children and adults disabled by alleged physician malpractice and industrial accidents and on behalf of a health care plan to show that the plaintiff’s hospital services were not covered because the plan excluded coverage of injuries resulting from an illegal act. As part of a cost containment effort, he prepared an operational and financing plan to reduce significant losses at a children’s teaching hospital and prevent its closing.
Dr. Katz earned his Doctor of Business Administration in Finance and Health Care Management from the George Washington University, his MBA from the Amos Tuck School and AB from Dartmouth College.
