Alan Morris

Alan Morris has joined the VGM Government Relations team as the Director of Research and Strategy. 

Morris is no stranger to the HME and hospital system industries with more than 15 years of experience in the two healthcare fields. Morris started with VGM back in 2007, working in government relations and focusing on helping HMEs adapt to an evolving healthcare environment.  In 2014, he departed VGM to lead a team of internal consultants and analysts at a large midwestern health system. 

Now eight years later, Alan is back with the VGM team. In his new position, his primary focus will be on industry trends and advising DMEPOS businesses on the impact of certain industry regulations. 

“I am excited to be coming back to VGM and seeing all of the ways the VGM has adapted and changed during my time away,” Morris said. “Additionally, I am excited to be placed in a position where I will be able to bring knowledge of regulations, analytics, and consulting to help navigate the ever-changing industry.” 

“We are thrilled to have Alan back with the VGM family,” said Mike Isaacson, SVP of Operations, VGM & Associates. “His knowledge of healthcare systems and strategy are part of our efforts to continue to be on the forefront of industry trends. Alan’s insights and expertise will bring even more opportunities to our members and industry partners.”
