healthcare strategies & solutions
Health PLANSInsurers, like most businesses, are always looking for ways to distinguish themselves from their competition. While having an established brand and competitive unit costs will always be important, employee benefit leaders are placing more and more emphasis on the total cost of care and a demonstrable impact of value-based initiatives. We offer a wealth of experience in this arena and can help your plan assess and refine your current value-based program portfolio and related products.
EmployersPurchaser-driven healthcare transformation is at the heart of what we do. Employers and health benefit consultants expect more these days, and they should. Purchasers will benefit from thoughtfully developing and conveying their expectations regarding access, price, service and quality to those delivering the care, and insist on results. If you are a progressive self-funded employer, we can help you separate the "fact from fiction" and assist you in identifying and directing your employees to high-value providers in your key markets.
Hospitals & Health systemsHospitals play a valuable role in our healthcare delivery system. They are a critical partner to insurers, employ most of our nation's clinical practictioners, and frequently serve as a convener and source of capital for ACOs, CINs and other provider-sponsored joint ventures. Accordingly, hospitals are uniquely positioned to enable industry transformation. If your organization and its physician leaders are committed to embracing such change, we can help.
PHYSICIANSPhysician engagement is critical to healthcare transformation. They are also clearly in the driver's seat when it comes to patient care, and their genuine committment to population health management initiatives will ultimately determine the value of such programs. Success, however, in risk-based contracting is not intuitive, and it cannot be acquired. It's learned. If your organization is ready to learn how to succeed in this complex and potentially lucrative space, we can help.

life sciencesPublic and private payer "new technology assessments" and related medical policies are key to getting benefit coverage for the products that your organization has been working tirelessly to bring to market.
