Madison, Wis – Emily Nelson has been promoted to serve as Vice President of Healthcare Transformation at MetaStar. She will lead a department that conducts a variety of work with hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and communities across Wisconsin.
Nelson joined MetaStar in 2015 and worked most recently as a program manager, overseeing projects related to health IT, community-based health improvement projects, and programs serving post-acute and long-term care organizations. She also served in a key leadership position for Superior Health Quality Alliance, of which MetaStar is a member organization.
