Payers and health plans are experiencing tremendous price pressure. Those customers are looking for ways to "hold the line" on spending while getting maximum value for the services they purchase on behalf of consumers. Our passion is to provide clients with the information and analyses needed to make these tough decisions.
Health systems and provider organizations are faced with dual challenge of providing great clinical outcomes with a great service experience for consumers—while meeting the system needs of payers and health plans. These organizations face significant financial, operational, marketing, and ethical challenges as funding for services is restructured. The issue for executives of health systems and provider organizations is developing a business strategy needed to adapt to this era of rapid change. Our role is to assist these executives by providing the market intelligence and management practices needed for success in a changing landscape.
