These days it seems everyone is talking about healthcare transformation. However, transformation really only focuses on a subset of what is currently happening in the U.S. healthcare ecosystem, and does not adequately address what is happening more broadly at a systemic level.
At KPMG, we believe that health plans, providers, intermediaries, pharmaceutical and medical device companies should be thinking beyond transformation and focus more on healthcare convergence and the broader implications of operating in a more collaborative and integrated U.S. healthcare delivery model. While transformation of current operations is likely going to be a business imperative, the real question for forward looking organizations is what role they plan to play in a new and more converged healthcare ecosystem.
We are different from other professional services firms because we take a solutions-based approach to solving our clients’ most complex challenges. Our independence and objectivity means that we are focused on making the best choices for our clients. And our multi-disciplinary approach – bringing together best practices from across the KPMG network – ensures that we take a 360-degree view of our clients’ challenges to help them understand the broader context of their business decisions.
