Titanium was founded by Gray Miller with a mission to improve healthcare.
As a seasoned process improvement executive, Gray was shocked during the hospitalization and near death of his father due to a combination of healthcare failings. His observations and engineering thinking began a blueprint for a better way to manage care in a setting most appropriate for the patient.
Gray began to share his observations with like minded industry experts. He also had contributions from different perspectives. Nurses, physicians, hospital and health plan executives, and patients. Each group had experiences and suggestions for a better way.
The team at Titanium took these differing views and with the benefit of decades of experience and leadership, created the Titanium approach for a better healthcare delivery system. “We have assembled a group of passionate executives who are experts at eliminating unnecessary testing, admissions, and utilization. Titanium was founded with a mind to create health care delivery as the patient would want it” notes Mr. Miller.
We want to create healthcare worthy of the people we care about.
To become a risk partner to health systems and be willing to put our margins where our mouth is.
To do whatever it takes to break through barriers and boundaries to make better processes. Fixes are often not easy and require great tenacity and resolve.
