Donald Tapella

Donald's 25-years of healthcare experience is diverse; including work as a clinical therapist in a hospital setting, marketing and account management, several years working on behalf of managed care payers, extensive contract negotiation and business and managed care analytics.  His success in running the audit and recovery program for one hospital, which accounted for over $1 million in recovery over 8 months, was the catalyst for establishing Medical Recovery Services.  His vision has driven the company from a medical claim audit firm into a full-service revenue cycle firm.
