Hospitals and Health Systems


Independent hospitals are currently facing increasing pressure to thread a small needle: they must manage the costs of delivering acute care, strike partnerships with physicians and other community providers to deliver services in high-quality outpatient settings, and radically redesign interactions with constituents such as payers and patients to increase likelihood of future success ad viability in the ever-shifting current healthcare landscape.

Increasingly, value-based payment models apply significant pressure on hospital volume and quality, while already high-performing hospitals are seeking out new tactics to embrace population health in a fiscally responsible manner. Services for hospitals might include:

  • Strategic planning to address various market-specific demands, including market share growth and payment reform

  • Board and/or governance learning sessions or retreats to understand market dynamics, hospital strengths, areas of opportunity, and potential threats or new entrants, while developing the best approach for C-suite management to execute effectively

  • Identify and negotiate partnerships with community partners to meaningfully participate in value-based payment arrangements, while protecting hospital financial performance
