Avi joined C.A.S.E as Chief Operating Officer in 2022, to assist in the growth of the C.A.S.E. service portfolio. Avi brings nearly 20 years of experience in the Behavioral Healthcare Industry and has worked in both the public and private sectors, in direct care as well as in leadership.
He is passionate about reducing barriers to care, especially for specialized populations and areas, understanding that each population is unique; therefore, his work has focused on ensuring clinical approaches, staffing, administration, and education match the expectations and needs of each community served. This process creates a system where the communities receive best in class care while the programs gain the ability to grow its service offerings, again, benefiting the communities.
The dedicated focus to this value has led to successful implementations of open access systems of care, data informed growth, value-based care initiatives, program development, workflow enhancements, and electronic medical record deployments and optimizations.
