North America Business Awards 2022

North America Business Awards 2022 | 6 Founded to provide financial and business advice to healthcare professionals, Ask Julia Healthcare Consulting (AJHC) started life as a column in a newsletter. Today AJHC is a thriving business providing a whole range of services to individuals, companies, non-profit organizations, and government agencies. Here we talk to Julia Nabiullina who is the driving force behind AJHC. ulia Nabiullina worked as a consultant for many years to educate and empower healthcare professionals and providers with training and advice. Her advice and training led to restored confidence and positivity in her clients. Julia quickly decided she would set up a business that was a driving force for transformation in the healthcare industry. Her first step was to launch a column in a regular newsletter called “Ask Julia”. The column became a website and the website evolved into a knowledgebase, and was such a success that Julia began to assemble a team of like-minded specialists. The aim – to build a multi-disciplinary team to support healthcare professionals with a range of consulting services. That’s when AJHC was born. Julia tells us, “Our mission is to empower healthcare professionals to thrive through change. We want to help them stay informed about regulations and to embrace a spirit of collaboration to make a difference in the public sector. We can attribute our success not just to the quality of our work, but also to our attitude and the way we interact with our clients. Our core values are openness, honesty, trust, respect, and reliability.” Today, AJHC provides consultancy services that include auditing, project management, data analytics, and training. Using a three-point framework of compliance, efficiency, and profitability, the experienced professionals at AJHC treat every client as an individual. Clients share their needs, concerns, goals, and objectives so that AJHC can help outline strategic plans for improvement. Auditing services help assess performance and compliance from both internal and external perspectives. Whilst project management professionals look after team allocation and collaboration. Clients access a host of analytical templates and are helped to define and update custom reporting tools, and AJHC designs every action to help the client through the change process so that they may achieve their goals. The subscription service, AJHC Academy provides clients with resources and learning materials to expand their knowledge. Varied teaching styles and mediums respond to the needs of different types of learners. There are bite-sized chunks of learning that can fit into your day and more in-depth modules for when you have a little more time to explore. AJHC Academy ensures there is always something new and exciting for learners to discover. AJHC Academy develops new materials to add to its ‘toolbox’ based on the challenges faced by its clients. Julia says, “We spend time understanding the problem before we start to develop a module. The team will look at regulations in detail, too. Once that’s done, we combine the information we’ve gathered with our knowledge of the field to craft a solution that works.” As well as pre-recorded videos and training courses, there’s handson screen-share training, and online and face-to-face coaching. And if you don’t know what you need, there’s a ‘Fire Department’ Team who assess where you are right now, where you need to be, and then recommend a solution to help you bridge the gap. The AJHC Academy subject matter experts and the technical and delivery teams are always ready for a new challenge. No topic is too complicated or obscure for them to tackle. Now looking to the future, AJHC Academy has big plans. These include a podcast, handouts for your staff and clients, and a full Q&A database. When asked about receiving the award, Julia’s colleague, Milena Yefimenko told us, “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Julia. I’ve witnessed her skill in serving public health needs in collaboration with the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH). No matter who she is working for, it has no effect on her critical decision-making. She always attempts to resolve challenges by finding the best outcome for everyone. Julia’s hands-on approach has been instrumental in ensuring thorough and efficient processes throughout the state.” For the team, Julia is the perfect example of how to handle even the toughest challenges with grace.
