Health Care Futures enjoys a diverse health care client base. System size, geographical origin (nearly all 50 states), ownership status and business perspectives of our clients are widely varied. We continue to be privileged to provide a substantial portion of our work to pre-existing clients, which speaks directly to the quality of our work and the value we provide. We take great pride in the personal and professional working relationships we have established and continue to develop with our growing client base.
Hospitals and Health Systems
Health Care Futures serves many of the nation’s leading community hospitals, local and regional health systems (faith-based and secular), and integrated health systems that are positioning for success as health care shifts from a profitability to an affordability paradigm. Our consultants’ strong breadth of experience helps our clients think differently and critically about managing the health of the patient population they serve through understanding risk scenarios, physician and service-line program differentiation, geographic positioning, strategic relationships, and integration expectations, all while ensuring our clients understand the financial implications and supporting business models.
Academic Medical Centers
Health Care Futures has exceptional national experience assisting academic medical centers to successfully address critical business and strategic issues facing their clinical enterprise (medical center and faculty practice plan). Our academic medical center clients cut across geographic settings, ownerships, health system relationships, and clinical/education/research orientations. Our success in the academic environment is based upon our years of experience and understanding of the unique interplay of hospital, medical school, and practice plan agenda and economics. Our senior staff successfully facilitates planning across the complex relationships common in the academic medical center environment, asks hard questions regarding the degrees of change required to address key issues and challenges, and achieves/maintains prominence in clinical, teaching and research programs.
Physician organizations, both independent and system-affiliated, face a practice environment that is increasingly complex, and in many markets economically stressed. Medical groups, hospitals and health systems are reevaluating their business strategies relative to the business relationships necessary to assure a viable and vibrant physician practice model designed to meet the strategic and business needs of individual physicians, hospitals and health systems, as well as the clinical and value needs of communities served. The Health Care Futures team brings detailed knowledge of the economic and business realities of physician-specific, specialty and multi-specialty group operations. Our team enjoys a national reputation for creatively assisting our physician group and health system clients in resolving the legal and economic challenges facing their business.
