March 2023 -  Good afternoon Nate, I wanted to extend my sincere gratitude for the successful completion of our recent contract. Your professionalism, dedication, and attention to detail were instrumental in achieving our mutual goals.

I look forward to the possibility of collaborating again in the future, as I am confident that our partnership holds great potential for continued success and growth.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if there are any opportunities for us to work together again.  Very respectfully, SVP


March 24, 2021 - I watched your presentation at the “virtual” Congress at the end of March. Your Hot Topic session was classic Nate Kaufman and it brought to mind how few speakers, let alone consultants, are willing to speak the unvarnished truth – especially when it is not a popular truth.  Your 2021 Playbook did just that! Thank you.


May 30, 2020 - Nate, Your presentation was awesome! Got tremendous feedback already that your talk was spot-on and how “hilarious” you are 😊.  Thank you again for your contribution. ~ APG CEO 

October 2019 - Hi Nate. The Board Members and other attendees provided very positive feedback.  They thought your presentation, comments, and advice were right on target and very applicable to our situation.  You covered the issues that I hoped you would.  All

in all, the session came off as planned and hoped, and you did an excellent job.  Thanks!  ~ CEO, West Coast

March 2019 - Nate, your presentation was a hit and everyone enjoyed it very much. You hit it out of the park.   ~  Association Executive


As always, you were a hit at our conference. Your presentation certainly made everyone consider what really works in healthcare delivery vs. what is often just perception and rhetoric. Thanks for challenging our thinking and preconceptions.   ~   Physician 

February 2019 - I do too many of these (podcasts), and you were in the very top percentile on how you discussed and talked about real issues. Truly Excellent.   ~   Internet Publisher

April 2018 - I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to present at the Hospital retreat this past Saturday. It was wonderful to hear your perspective on where the industry is moving and to get your thoughtful advice on a few areas to focus on.  Given the Hospital’s strategic context, we’ve had lots of speakers and consultants at retreats and meetings through the years, but I found your presentation most relevant. Some have prescribed for us to be the “Uber of Healthcare,” which is challenging for a small community hospital, while others have told us to go direct to consumers, which is a hurdle when we don’t have a medical group or care management capabilities. Your advice for us to start somewhere and start working with our physicians to reduce clinical variation while creating an economic vehicle (e.g. bundled payment or next-generation ACO) seemed to resonate with the group.  Many thanks again for the thoughtful presentation.   ~  A Chicago Group 

March 2017 - Thank you so much for speaking to our Forum members last week.  Thus far, all the individual comments I received said you were right on target.  Healthcare has always been complex, but it just seems to get more complicated.  But, thanks for pointing out that we can still influence as orthopedic groups.  Your humor and insightful examples just add to your effectiveness as a speaker and again, thanks for your time.   It was a great way to lay the groundwork for the rest of our meeting.  ~ CEO, Southeast Forum

February  2017 - As always you were great, and our trustees were most impressed.  ~ Executive Vice President, XXX Healthcare


“Hi Nate, Thank you for a fantastic job last week as always! The group had only positive remarks and you sparked an hour discussion about strategies for dealing with UHC. If any members reach out to me with questions about your presentation, I will of course connect them with you.


I will be in touch with speaking details for our October meeting in Louisville! ~ CEO, Educational Association”


I want to officially express my gratitude to you for making yourself available for the SCMG annual meeting. Your talk was excellent - on point, understandable and educational for the audience.  We are extremely lucky to have you as an advisor, and friend.  ~ Medical Group President


We’re thankful for all Nate's time, assistance and advice over the years – as I know he was very involved with the health system, especially as it related to the acquisition.  I value his feedback as he has brought a wealth of experience as we move forward with our population health focus.  ~  President;  Tertiary Care Health System in North East


We just heard Nathan Kaufman speak at our leadership group this morning. A very powerful speaker that I wish all the care coordinators in the system could have heard. He spoke about the upcoming changes in Medicare and Managed Care reimbursement, changes required to maintain a positive financial and quality bottom line, and the importance of aggressive case management in achieving both these goals. Jim is going to email his presentation to our leadership group. I would like to share it with you. I don’t easily get impressed with speakers but this guy had a message that everyone should hear.  ~  Department Manager; 250 Med Medical Center in the South West


We just finished our meeting with the finance committee. They are in favor of agreeing to the rates. They were very surprised at the negotiations coming about so quickly. I really think that BCBS realizes that it would be very unfavorable to lose a provider at this time, as well as the risk of losing physician providers. Our goal was to get 35% increase in overall payments. After modeling the rates, our calculations show that we would get a 30% increase. On a rate basis, t puts us at 174% of Medicare (we stared out at 133% of Medicare). Thank you for your help.  ~  Executive V.P. of Finance; 231 bed Medical Center in the South
