“When it comes to partnerships, regardless of their specific form, balancing competing priorities is a critical — and continuous — task that will determine the shape and success of the partnership.”

The Kaufman Hall Difference

Kaufman Hall understands the strategic and financial imperatives for payers and providers today. The great decentralization of healthcare (virtual, home, etc.) is inspiring a wave of new industry entrants – with significant implications for provider and payer incumbents. Payment models are increasingly marching toward value, fueled by material changes to our regulatory environment, consumer/purchaser landscape, tech enablement, physician enablement, and consequences of cost sharing.
