"As a Harvard Medical School graduate, I’ve come across no shortage of talented, ambitious, and provocative thinkers. Dr. Cybulsky features prominently among them. Dr. Cybulsky moves mountains with his grit and inventiveness. You’ll either cheerfully collaborate with him or watch from the sidelines as he revolutionizes healthcare. Dr. Cybulsky is a thought leader who has my highest recommendation" - Guido Guidotti, MD Physician Executive Management Consultant
"It’s been a pleasure collaborating closely with Dr. Cybulsky over the years. His expertise in behavioral economics and human dynamics have been useful in improving our execution of key strategy, and operational initiatives. I have found over the years, that sometimes my strategy might be right, our team's implementation well thought out but the results were not optimal. With Matt's help, we are critically thinking about our execution methods using his expertise in human behavior, enhancing the speed with which we maximize our results. Some of the initiatives he has worked on include: patient engagement; EMR optimization; gaps in care reduction; patient portal enrollment; employee wellness engagement and culture of safety reinforcement. As we focus in the future on value, outcomes, and care satisfaction, Matt’s combined expertise is bound to continue offering invaluable insights time and time again" -Kim Hollon, FACHE CEO, Signature Healthcare Boston, Mass
"Associating with Dr. Cybulsky and IONIA is exceptional; his expertise with human dynamics and experience in healthcare finance & operations make him a worthwhile partner. Not to mention, his behavioral approaches to accomplish organizational wide goals are pioneering. As value and quality outcomes take precedence over volumes, Matt’s expertise is essential for success" - Bill Masterton, CEO Of University Medical Center New Orleans with 24 years of progressive healthcare experience
"IONIA was an instrumental guide for us while developing growth strategies at South Baldwin Regional Medical Center; with their help and insights, we made considerable progress with our municipal relationships and parent company. I’d recommend IONIA LLC for their unique psychological insights into complex business strategy and solutions; we’ll certainly be calling on them again" - Keith Newton, CEO of South Baldwin Regional Medical Center and dynamic economic development leader
Audacity. Risk. Pursuit of goals. Matt Cybulsky has been willing to forego the safe path for the challenging one as long as I’ve known him. Matt served as my graduate assistant for two years (2012-2014) in the University of Alabama’s prestigious, interdisciplinary, and intellectually demanding Blount Scholars Program, which is similar to the “Great Books” program that was developed at the University of Chicago and is still taught at the St. Johns Colleges in Annapolis and Santa Fe. Indeed, Matt had participated as a freshman in the first Blount class in 1998. Matt essentially co-led our freshmen discussion-based seminars. What most impresses me about Matt is his intuitive ability to discern the personality strengths and weaknesses of each student and his effectiveness in persuading each student to recognize and enhance his or her strengths. As an intelligence officer within the CIA for 32 years, I know a bright mind when I see it. Without reservation, I can recommend Matt as a teammate, friend, and creative mind. He is both a dreamer and a builder, and he operates without hostility to the unfamiliar. Do not second-guess working closely with him, his determination and imagination will not steer you wrongly.
-Dr. Stephen Schwab, The University of Alabama
