My mission is to explore, analyze and execute meaningful business development strategies for fast-paced and innovative healthcare companies.

About Me

Hi! I’m Jill Farrell. After 12 years of working in healthcare, I learned I’m most energized by the problem solving, strategy and business development side of the industry. What motivates me is working in creative and culturally dynamic teams delivering products and solutions to clients impacted by today’s evolving healthcare environment.

People find me to be a self-motivated, gracious and upbeat team leader who communicates effectively while bringing credibility to key projects. For the past several years I have worked in several healthcare fields including population health management, behavioral health, performance improvement, consulting and clinical research.

When I’m not working, you can find me at the gym, taking my goldendoodle Zeddy to the beach or at home sharpening my cooking skills.

Adaptive Leadership

Given an ever changing healthcare market with challenging resource demands, I value the opportunity to work with creative, productive and resilient teams. As a leader, I'm recognized as a transparent communicator, highly adaptable contributor and strategic facilitator supporting multiple projects, client needs and organizational goals.


A Fresh Perspective

With each new project, I bring a methodical and creative approach, drawing upon previous healthcare experience as a business solutions provider, researcher, and project facilitator. I proactively engage across departments and functions to constantly learn and produce stellar client solutions that align with company mission and objectives.

Creative Strategy

I am a creative, outside-the-box thinker that looks at not only key elements of a product, but how it holistically impacts the organization and client. I can capture multiple moving parts within a strategy and understand how each step impacts the project and the customer. I am comfortable sharing these strategies with people at all levels of an organization, from leadership to my own team, as well as speaking in front of an audience.

Improving Health Outcomes for Children and Families

While at NCQA, I served as Project Manager on a multi-year, $7.7 million grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality (AHRQ) to advance pediatric measurement. The National Collaborative for Innovation in Quality Measurement (NCINQ) was a consortium of leaders, multi-state and multi-stakeholder collaboratives and national organizations led by NCQA that focused on developing measures around pediatric care. In this role I streamlined project coordination with NCQA Principal Investigator (PI), multiple stakeholders and several research centers while effectively reporting on all project deliverables, operating budget and resource requirements. I also supported the technical development and prioritization of adolescent depression measures for use in Electronic Health Records (EHRs) while serving as the primary interface with integrated health systems and community health center test sites.
