How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

the story of ancore

Our brave work began with a brave story.

Twenty-one beats per minute. In less than four months, my resting heart rate decreased from 70 to 49 beats per minute. Had I known that my life would be impacted so greatly by a change in course, perhaps I would be writing this sooner. Nevertheless, early in 2016, I realized I needed to make a change in both my personal and professional life.

Up to this point, I had a stable career for over 15 years working with two well-respected organizations: TeamHealth and The Advisory Board Company (via the Southwind Health Partners acquisition). TeamHealth gave me my first shot out of college, Southwind gave me my first shot at building something bigger than myself, and The Advisory Board Company gave me the ability to build something beyond my expectations. The work was professionally rewarding and included building an incredible consulting and management team focused on developing financially sustainable relationships, primarily between physicians and health system executives. We made this happen in a variety of ways including physician compensation redesign and implementation, business intelligence technology development, and value-based care economic roadmaps, to name a few. I am eternally grateful for the opportunities I had with these organizations and the friendships I made along the way.

In the middle of 2016, given many years “on the road,” I wanted to spend more time with my family, including my wife, Joanne, who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (“MS”) one year after our daughter was born. As many of you know, people dealing with chronic conditions need support beyond the clinical diagnosis and treatment plan.

My idea was that by making a radical change as a family we could create a new normal. I made this decision in February of 2016 and left my executive job toward the end of May of 2016. Leaving the laptop behind, we escaped for six weeks in the heat of the summer to Cape Cod to find cooler air (which helps manage MS symptoms) and hit the reset button.

During my time off, many things changed. The intent of creating a new normal for my family worked. The noise of corporate life went away and I felt refreshed and excited. And in this place of rejuvenation, I was able to look ahead to what might come next.

Once we returned home, I spent my time networking, learning from the many interesting people in and out of Nashville who are part of the healthcare entrepreneurial space. The energy and motivation to change and improve healthcare was contagious. I cannot thank these people enough who were so encouraging and empowering, even giving me a healthy dose of reality. You know who you are.

Toward the end of 2016, I decided to start my own company. I wanted to do something that combined my operational, consulting, networking, and personal healthcare experience and use it for good. Joanne insisted we name the company Anchor, due to the calming image we recalled from our time at Cape Cod. It worked, because my early vision for the company was to help organizations innovate from their core. So, we chose the name Ancore, which means “multiple anchors” in Italian.

Ancore Health imagines a world where curiosity leads to mission-first mindsets across fully synced organizations. We partner with providers who are brave enough to chart a new financial path that is the right answer for patients. To make this happen, we take our finance and data insight expertise and invite health systems to reimagine their existing assets, like their medical group. Amid today’s maze of uncertainty, the priorities of the patient are being conveniently ignored. There is an immediate opportunity to drive a new economic vision with the patient at the center and we invite you to join us on this journey.
