"When our daughter was diagnosed at 18 months with multiple learning disabilities, my wife and I were devastated.  We had nowhere to turn for help and advice on how to give our daughter the help she needed.  With a lot of digging, searching and not accepting No for an answer, we were able to get the placement in the school system to help her succeed, and excel. She went on to get college credits and earn a Certificate in Early Childhood Development.  Today, she is a lead teacher at a national chain of day care centers and is living on her own.  We owe a lot to those who helped us help her.  By volunteering for the Board of DayOne PACT, I am trying to pay back what was given us, and to her."

MEMBER: Amy Stiner, RN, MBA, MPA, Principal, AC Stiner Consulting

Amy is a healthcare executive with over 20 years of healthcare delivery, technology, and patient engagement experience. She has been responsible for enterprise wide clinical transformation through business development initiatives aligned with strategic goals of organizations. Advised and facilitated multi-disciplinary and integrated system process redesign supported by metrics for value realization. Project managed implementations of clinical information systems. Served as an advisor on national and regional health information exchange. Practiced as an instructor in healthcare business intelligence and analytics addressing healthcare operations, quality improvement, population health, and mentored research of the highest scientific merit for graduate and postgraduate levels.

“My involvement in DayOne PACT is both a personal commitment as a parent of a child with “invisible special needs” and a professional calling. The Parent Support Project at DayOne PACT is something that I am deeply passionate about on a personal level—it provides support to parents with emotional and psychological support. I have had had firsthand experience as a parent and seasoned healthcare professional, in navigating the bureaucratic challenges and the countless barriers to access care and services for my child. The stress in this never-ending cycle of seeking services, being rejected, and repeating applications and appeals until a child qualifies for services will wear the strongest of individuals down over time. Multiply that times 10, 20, 30 years for a catastrophically disabled child and you reach a certain level of parental burnout and desperation finding themselves asking “Who will do this after I am gone? Who will wait on hold for 75 mins to receive a denial of services or be notified of lost paperwork and start the process over? Who is going to do this? How long am I going to have to do this? Will it ever end?”
