WALTHAM,  MAAssuriCare, a recognized innovator within the long-term care industry, announced two key additions to its leadership team today. Nicholas Easley, a trailblazer in value-driven business process design, has joined the company’s leadership team as Vice President of Transformation, and Christie Conway, a veteran long-term care claims management leader as a Strategic Account Executive.

Nicholas Easley comes to AssuriCare with over a decade of strong operational leadership in diverse and often challenging environments.

Over the course of his career he has consistently demonstrated his fluency at implementing positive change for organizations in multiple industries, including Siemens Building Technologies, Union Station Technology Center, and Jeremy Rifkin Enterprises. “Nick’s efforts will focus on driving efficiencies and maximizing value of the LTCfastpay platform; both within the company and for insurers,” said Gilbert.

“I love digging into business processes and finding or creating opportunities,” said Easley. “AssuriCare has created an innovative technology platform and processes that create unique value for long-term care insurers.  I am excited to be a part of the team that is charged with taking that to the next level.”

Christie Conway joins AssuriCare with 24 years of long-term care experience at Bankers Life and Casualty, one of the country’s largest active long-term care insurers.  Over the last 10 years, Ms. Conway led the long-term care claims team, and has established herself as an industry-recognized leader in innovative claims management processes and identification and mitigation of fraud, waste and abuse.  “I’m so pleased that Christie has decided to join AssuriCare, to use her deep experience in long-term care claims management to help other long-term care insurers innovate to drive efficiencies, identify fraud and reduce unnecessary claims utilization,” said Gilbert.

“I’m thrilled to take this step to work for such an innovative and exciting company,” said Conway.  “I’m looking forward to collaborating with claims teams from many different long-term care insurers, to share my experience and help implement technology that transforms the way claims are processed and paid.”
