A tailored approach to healthcare's most difficult problems 

The traditional management consulting model has fallen into disrepute. Burdened with excessive overheads and inefficiencies – and sometimes questionable motives – it is increasingly proving ill-suited to the demands of today’s rapidly changing health systems. Challenged to shift their own focus from one of episodic care to one of population health and struggling to contain costs and leverage the scale of newly-merged organizations, health systems are seeking answers customized to their situation. Planning as it has been conducted over the past decades is simply no longer trusted in a dynamic environment. Today’s systems seek strong partners to diagnose their strategic problems and offer strong recommendations. Latimer Health Strategies was founded on the belief that healthcare organizations will increasingly seek tailored answers to strategic problems. That they wish to work directly with experts – alone or in networks they assemble to address these issues. And that all solutions require speed to execution.  (Click here to read more about disruption in the consulting industry)
