About how we support the following value-based care programs and alignment models:


From inception to implementation, shifting to value-based care requires a new model of health system operations—one that engages and enables staff, physicians, and affiliated partners to work towards new population health goals.

At its core, operational success is embedded in a strong population health infrastructure that promotes scalability and sustainability across the system.

Establishing a solid foundation for growth

Since value-based care initiatives can impact traditional fee-for-service revenue, getting the operations in order for optimal efficiency is top-of-mind for health system executives.

But many transformation leaders struggle with bringing their population health strategies to scale in a cost-effective, accessible, and centralized way. The challenge lies in pulling together disparate resources into a centralized entity, and building a strong infrastructure to support system-wide operations.

Governance and Leadership

  • Develop a centralized infrastructure with local market governance to support operations
  • Engage local physician and executive leadership
  • Establish a care management leadership committee

Analytics and Reporting

  • Integrate IT platform for system-wide data collection and exchange
  • Modify quality, efficiency initiatives, and benchmarks for various markets

Care Management Resources

  • Design and deploy local care management resources and programs
  • Reduce cost and care variation through coordinated patient care

Processes and Procedures

  • Establish procedures for physician education and conduct remediation based on centrally developed reports
  • Design incentive programs in line with organizational strategies and objectives

Contracts and Partnerships

  • Arrange service contracts with payers and employers in local market
  • Expand network of partnerships for additional consumer value proposition

When organizations create a strong supporting infrastructure, population health management can become a major growth opportunity for health systems—reducing clinical variation, improving care outcomes, increasing patient access, and encouraging in-network referrals.

How we help

Across the country, our consultants are working with health systems to bring their operations to scale, find the right balance of central and local control, and implement processes and technologies to use now, and for long-term enhancement.

To support your organization’s specific strategies, we provide assistance with clinical integration, care transformation, risk-based contracting, and governance. Our expert team helps systems develop a Population Health Services Organization—a platform we are designing to give network providers access to shared services that support a variety of value-based payment arrangements, including full risk. Both large health systems and smaller organizations affiliated with a network can benefit from this infrastructure that reduces clinical variation, promotes economies of scale, and supports coordination across the continuum.
