Strategy Development


  • Affiliations, mergers and acquisitions. 

  • Strategic planning.

  • FMV evaluations

  • Service line planning. 

  • Ambulatory service development. 

  • ACO development

Strategic initiatives often challenge participants, many of whom may never have been part of a merger or acquisition before. Our consultants have assisted dozens of organizations through this complex process and earned the knowledge, understanding, objectivity, and sensitivity to guide you.

Experience counts. An independent, unbiased review by Insight Health Partners will help vet your Strategic or Financial Plan, validate the numbers, and give you the confidence you need to proceed – or the clarification to make adjustments before you expend time and resources. We assess your plan objectively to determine its financial viability and follow through with facilitated sessions with your Leadership Team.


IHP's practiced financial, analytical and modeling skills include generating analysis of alternative scenarios (including volume, reimbursement and more) that may positively or negatively impact your financial projections. Our expertise has helped us guide dozens of hospitals, health systems, and physician organizations all around the nation to proceed with confidence.

The principals of Insight Health Partners can help assure that the path you are on is the right one for your organization.

Pre-Merger Assessment:
Does it make sense to proceed with a merger? We help identify the pros and cons of a projected merger by analyzing -

  • What advantages does each side bring?

  • What obstacles does each side bring?

  • What issues need to be addressed before proceeding?

  • What are the operational and financial cases for the transaction?

  • What is the clinical case for the transaction?

Community Benefit / Efficiency Study:

A Community Benefit/Efficiency Study can determine the expected savings and benefits to the community through examination of -

  • Capital Avoidance Savings

  • Cost Savings

  • Access Improvements

  • Quality Improvements

Merger Business Planning:

If the business case warrants moving forward, we help develop a true strategic merger plan that defines the essential components of the combined organization and how it will operate, including a detailed description of the new organization’s future direction. Our analysis addresses issues such as -

  • What will be the structure of the new organization?

  • Will services be consolidated and if so, which ones and where?

  • How will capital priorities and allocation be established?

  • Are there new services to invest in?

  • How and when will merger efficiencies be implemented?

  • What is the plan for the next 3-5 years?

Business Transformation:

Moving to a value-based environment requires rethinking the structure and framework for healthcare delivery and involves a true partnership between the hospital and the physicians. IHP helps organizations achieve enhanced quality and outcomes, transparency, efficiency and, ultimately, value.

We offer customized support for these services -
