HEALTHone80 began as a healthcare
advisory firm founded in 2013 by a group of senior
healthcare executives who understood that, in order to
survive, our healthcare system needed a better way to
connect healthcare consumers with their healthcare
providers. It was our belief that the solution would be a
local one. We didn’t like the healthcare system that served
us as individual consumers and we were determined to help
build a new future for healthcare, one community at a time.
HEALTHone80 differentiates its advisory services
with professionals who have in-depth knowledge and experience from
within healthcare delivery. This experience is key to the change
necessary to transform local markets into efficient healthcare
economies that provide high quality and value to their local
constituents. We have personally experienced healthcare providers,
insurance carriers and traditional health insurance brokers seeking
to maintain the status quo, likely for reasons solely related to
preservation of income. We are determined to expose these
stakeholders’ motives and we will not be deterred by local politics
and traditional long-term business relationships.
This is what
makes HEALTHone80 different. Our solutions are creative, innovative
and serve as the catalyst for inherent long-term change that is
critical to true healthcare reform in this nation.
Our team includes professionals experienced within all levels of
healthcare – including clinicians, academics, system leaders,
corporate officers, financial analysts, and content specialists –
our team brings an average of 25 years of healthcare knowledge per
professional. The firm is able to serve a broad range of clients
from tertiary/academic medical centers, PHOs and IPAs, physician
practices, Clinically Integrated Networks, rural health providers
(including Critical Access Hospitals), and large not-for-profit and
investor-owned hospitals in highly competitive metropolitan markets.
