Lea Ann Biafora is a seasoned oncology nurse and accomplished leader with over 30 years of experience in delivering, developing, and evaluating patient-centered cancer care services. Her extensive background in both provider and payer settings has granted her deep insights into the complexities of cancer care delivery.

Lea Ann’s involvement in various professional networks, including the American Cancer Society and National Oncology State Network, reflects her commitment to improving access and quality of cancer care. Her specialized team of oncology nurses not only ensures that patients receive exceptional care, but also the peace of mind that comes with knowing their pain and worries are being addressed with open communication and better physician-patient relationships.

Lea Ann is passionate about creating innovative solutions to improve the cancer care experience for patients, caregivers, and employers. As the CEO/Founder of Beacon Advocates, she leads a team of professional cancer care ‘insider’ advisors who provide actionable care coordination and advocacy tech-enabled services that enhance clinical and financial outcomes in cancer care.

Her strengths include building, improving, and expanding healthcare programs through consultative services, negotiating, and securing managed care contracts, containing costs through utilization service enhancements, and improving clinical and regulatory outcomes through measurable activities. She has a proven track record of delivering value across multiple healthcare sectors, including cancer-related educational programs, clinical analytics, and external communication.

As a cancer care experience expert, Lea Ann leverages her domain expertise and credentials as an Oncology Certified Nurse (OCN), a Certified Professional in Healthcare Quality (CPHQ), and a Certified Case Manager (CCM) to empower and support my customers and partners.
