Attaya has a Master of Business Administration degree from the Boston University Graduate School of Management and a Bachelor of Arts degree and certificate in Community Health from Tufts University.

“SHP is the premier data analytics and benchmarking solution in the post-acute healthcare industry today,” Attaya said. “I look forward to working with Barbara, Alex and the SHP team as we grow our leadership position.”

Attaya served on NAHC’s Home Care & Hospice Financial Managers Association Advisory Board from 1991-1993 and is a commissioner on the Public Payer Commission, representing the Home Care Alliance. He has been a member of the Healthcare Financial Management Association since 1983 and a fellow since 1990.
