URAC Reviewer's turned Consultants!

About Us

Jennifer Wester, RN, CEO and founder of Arete Healthcare Solutions

 

Jennifer has 22 years of experience in the healthcare industry. Her desire to improve healthcare delivery, naturally led her into healthcare consulting.


Prior to the establishment of Arete Healthcare Solutions, Jennifer specialized in critical care nursing, post anesthesia care and quality management. She also worked as an independent healthcare consultant where she was contracted by various healthcare consulting companies who specialized in URAC and NCQA Accreditation. Lastly and prior to establishing Arete Healthcare Solutions she was contracted with URAC as a URAC Accreditation Reviewer. 


As a URAC Reviewer, and independent healthcare consultant, she worked with many organizations struggling to attain accreditation. URAC accreditation is a rigorous process and many organizations don’t have the internal resources to develop policies/procedures or the requisite framework to support the scope of the accreditation.


Jennifer felt the need to form her own consulting firm where she could bring her knowledge and experience together with the expertise of healthcare professionals who understand how to work through the difficulties organizations encounter during the accreditation process., which led to the  establishment of  Arete Heallthcare Solutions.
