Sean Maher joined the Department of Surgery in March 2021 as Senior Business Manager, bringing a decade of experience in healthcare management.
As an undergraduate at the Pennsylvania State University, he earned a degree in Health Policy Administration. After graduation, he spent more than five years at the University of Pennsylvania Health System, starting in the Department of Neurology.
After moving to the Temple Health System, he discovered that his true passion is in the financial – not operational – side of healthcare management. While at Temple, he earned an MBA from Gwynedd Mercy University and advanced to become Senior Financial Analyst for projections, handling budgets for the entire health system.
As the Department of Surgery’s Senior Business Manager, Maher is applying his skills in financial management and analysis. In addition to having overall responsibility for the Department’s budget, Maher is working to streamline the collection, analysis and dissemination of financial data to clinicians within the Department. He is building a financial model to help physicians to better understand and continually improve their own performance data.
“I’m most excited about getting this statistical information to the physicians on a monthly basis,” he says. “Once everything is automated, they’ll be able to drill down to see the financial information associated with the procedures they are performing.”
Maher, who grew up in Northeast Philadelphia, met his wife in Sea Isle City (his favorite vacation). They now live in Upper Dublin with their daughter, Quinn, who turns two in August.
