Outmaneuver Uncertainty: What To Do Now and Next


COVID-19 has created unprecedented financial damage to America’s hospitals and health systems, and will reshape healthcare’s future in ways that are hard to predict.

To emerge successfully from the COVID crisis, organizations need the very best and most nuanced plans, and superbly coordinated execution. We work as a quarterback across all parts of the recovery, including baseline financial and credit position, operational cost structure, strategic positioning, and balance sheet improvement.

The Path Forward


The First Phase: Assessing the Impact

This phase includes understanding the effects of COVID on the environment and on the organization’s financial and operational conditions. This assessment results in an organization-specific scenario that combine pre-COVID state and the impact of COVID.


Pre and Post COVID scenario planning for healthcare


The Second Phase: Charting the Path Forward

This phase connects the organizational state with strategic goals for a post-COVID future. For example, larger, financially strong organizations that were only modestly affected by COVID may focus on a growth strategy. Organizations that were stable prior to COVID but moderately affected by the virus may focus on recovery. And organizations that were financially challenged prior to COVID and hit hard by the virus’ effects may focus on significant restructuring.
