PwC named a leader in new Kennedy healthcare report

Kennedy, the leading consulting research and advisory firm, has rated PwC as a Kennedy Vanguard Leader in their new report on Consulting to Healthcare (HC) Payers and Providers: Alternative Care Models (ACM). 

In the report, Kennedy states that “PwC enables HC payers and providers to advance into Alternative Care Models through a variety of well-developed frameworks, approaches and serves. The firm brings distinct balanced approach perspective to alternative payments to help guide HC systems on timing of when to enter these arrangements within their specific locale, fortifying assurances for executives and physicians in both large and small HC organisations, and enabling less of a scale-only risk perspective for ACM with aligned buyer readiness assessments. PwC’s New Health Economy guidance brings distinct industry acumen with innovative transformation centred on population health and ACM readiness.”

Kevin Carr, MD, Partner, Population Health and Value Lead, “We are pleased to have been rated by Kennedy as an ‘Advancing Vanguard,’ recognising our best-in-class consulting capabilities around Alternative Care Models (ACMs). Kennedy’s research looked at consulting around operating models that incentivise cooperation among payers, providers, and patients to directly align care payments with health outcomes, and we are proud that PwC was noted as having one of the most comprehensive and robust ACM practices of the 25 firms surveyed.”

Gurpreet Singh, Partner, US Health Services Advisory Lead, “This recognition reflects that PwC is in a unique position to help health systems with Alternative Care Models (ACMs), as we combine the expertise of our health sector practice, with the healthcare strategy and successes of Strategy&, with the research-driven insights from our Health Research Institute, and with the broader PwC network. We are the best equipped to aid decision makers in navigating healthcare operating model changes at the right time to their consumers in a sustainable way.”

Kennedy further notes that “PwC has established ACM frameworks and advisory acumen centred on a broad array of value-based care models – from ACOs and integrated care to risk-sharing arrangements and private-public partnerships that enable HC system redesign, strategy, operations, incentives, HC information and collaboration platforms, as well as risk and financial management to plan, design and effect value-based care adoption among state and federal HC consulting clients.”
