The team - Health Care

The Health Care team focuses on assisting those organizations that are responsible for the delivery, funding, and payment management of health care and medical related services.

Health plans face a number of unique environmental pressures that affect the way they will conduct business today and in the future - among them a need for increased privacy and security, an intense focus on risk management, access to capital, efforts to consolidate and streamline IT functions, the launch of new consumer-driven business models, managing chronic diseases through medical management practices, maximizing e-business-driven platforms, implementing health plan-specific customer relationship management tools, and complying with increasing financial and transactional legislation. Our health care professionals can help clients address these and other challenges in today's complex health care environment.
