Ellen Abshire

Senior Principal Healthcare & Life Sciences Chicago

Applying her unique skill set and deep industry knowledge, Ellen leads complex healthcare compliance initiatives, optimizing operational capabilities, and guiding payer, provider, and government agency IT functions and operations through large-scale technology and business transformation.

Ellen’s project background encompasses back- and middle-office technology solutions, including modernizing legacy platforms, implementing third-party packages, and developing custom applications.

One of the keys to Ellen’s success is the diverse perspective she has gained while approaching business transformation as a client, a business process outsourcer, an integrator, and a consultant. This rich lens enables her to achieve results in challenging situations and unite multiple constituents with different goals and concerns.

Ellen joined West Monroe through the firm’s acquisition of Invoyent, LLC, a healthcare business and technology consultancy. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Queens University of Charlotte.

What makes Ellen different

Ellen’s leisure time pursuits are as diverse as her business perspective. She takes yearly safaris to Africa, she is a certified scuba instructor, and she enjoys historical costume-making.

Where Ellen makes an impact

Over the course of Ellen’s career, she has led $100 million projects, overseen the migration of hundreds of thousands of lives to new technology platforms, and designed and implemented a system that helped a client resolve a monthly imbalance of $28 million in unresolved cash receipts.
