She excels at developing innovative and adaptable solutions at every level. Our organization has been fortunate to work with Ann over the last year, and our results show it.”

“With the help of Amy Machtay, Pathways was the first behavioral health organization in Kentucky to attest to Meaningful Use, earning us the Pioneer Award from the Kentucky Health Information Exchange. Amy’s outstanding project management skills helped map out a detailed plan which guided us through this process. We are currently weeks away from qualifying for Year 2 attestation, and we couldn’t have done it without Amy. She is an expert in Meaningful Use and often has more insight to the requirements than our certified EHR vendor.”

Betsy Jackson, MS, LPA- Pathways, Inc. – Ashland, KY
Chief Compliance Officer

“Ann is a strong and insightful leader, who gathers needed information, asks strategic questions, and skillfully works for consensus. She effectively looks over the horizon as she works for the long term health of the organization, and has excellent consulting skills.”

“[The]Commission on Economic Opportunity of Rensselaer contacted Ann for her expertise in healthcare reform, Medicaid, managed care, and the delivery of human services in an ever changing environment. Since working with Ann, I have seen an amazing shift in our administrative and management team. We no longer fear, but have embraced the changes. We have restructured our organization to improve upon communication, established clear outcome measures in our programs, and we are pursuing collaborations and partnerships with organizations that are mutually beneficial and sustainable over time. Ann has a respectful way of teaching and explaining information in a way that is easily understood by her audience.”
