Strategic & Business Plans

As you navigate towards value-based care, determining the right path among the myriad of reform initiatives can be daunting. Revisiting and updating your strategic plan can give you clarity on the tough decisions you need to make.  Your vision, goals, and strategy should drive your decision-making when it comes to your affiliation strategy, payer strategy, clinical integration, and more. Ensuring your strategic plan is clear, implementable, and takes into account changing economic, demographic, payer, clinical care, and market trends – such as emerging payment systems, impact of healthcare reform, and insurance exchanges – will help guide your decisions.

As the industry continues to evolve, so does the strategic planning process. Today’s strategic plans need to move away from being hospital-centric and consider the full care continuum in light of value-based payment reform. Our thought leaders and healthcare advisors have hands-on experience helping hundreds of hospitals, systems, medical groups, and other clients across the country not only prepare but implement strategic and business plans based on their unique culture, circumstances, and ambitions.

We also assist in the evaluation of strategic options and scenario planning, taking into account various trends and their implications, market share, financial condition, utilization, competitive positioning, and market outreach. Our approach is comprehensive and thorough, providing you with specific implementable strategies to help you achieve success.
