The pace of change in healthcare is unlike that of any other industry.
The pace of change in healthcare is unlike that of any other industry. Policies and regulations are constantly being proposed, implemented, and later amended to address issues of access, cost and quality. FTI Consulting’s Center for Healthcare Economics and Policy has the experience and expertise to estimate the impact of proposed as well as current policies on a complex and evolving healthcare system.

Because providers, insurers and governments operate in a dynamic healthcare environment, simple trend extrapolation may not suffice for sound predictions.

Another specialty of the Center is bringing advanced analytics and industry expertise to help you solve your toughest challenges — for example, current and future demand, optimizing or reconfiguring system assets, and assessing outcomes and benefits from change. Our rigorous, proactive analyses of investments in technologies and facilities, as well as changes in services and capacity, help identify strategic choices, regulatory risks and benefits. Our experienced economists bring health-related expertise to address client needs across the healthcare and life sciences industry and as proven partners on work and regulatory reviews before U.S. and international agencies. By providing analysis of M&A and regulatory issues; market sizing; profitability analysis; and the creation of value propositions for healthcare products and services, accurate assessments in private equity can be made. We use evidence-based, comprehensive analysis of a population’s health and utilization to inform strategic healthcare transformation and interventions.
