Industry ExpertiseHealthcareHealthcare Policy & Compliance
Effectively navigating the federal and state policy landscape is an essential skill for any organization whose business is in, or depends on, the healthcare sector. Even as complex government policy changes are made with respect to health insurance coverage and cost, fundamental changes related to reducing overall healthcare costs, measuring the effectiveness of healthcare, improving population health and using technology and analytics to drive future decisions, are all likely to continue in the coming years. The healthcare industry has always been heavily regulated, but the pace of change has significantly accelerated in recent years and the complexity of new policies can be challenging for any organization. Implementing new policy mandates and maintaining a sound compliance infrastructure in an ever-changing environment require a strategic balance of people, process and technology.
