Crowell Health Solutions

We understand health care.
We understand policy.
We understand regulations.
And we understand innovation.

Crowell Health Solutions is a strategic consulting firm focused on helping clients to pursue and deliver innovative alternatives to the traditional approaches of providing and paying for health care, including through digital health, health equity, and value-based health care. We help clients bring pioneering products and services to market, structure results-driven collaborations and business arrangements, and advance policy priorities in the complex and rapidly evolving health care environment.

Organizations across the health care sector are increasingly turning to value-based care, population health, and digital technologies to:

  • Better engage patients and members;
  • Improve the quality of care at a lower cost;
  • Improve population health and care coordination; and
  • Gain efficiencies in payment and health care operations.

These objectives can be achieved not only because of the growing availability of electronic health data, new analytics tools, and AI-enabled technologies, but also because of new business and policy environments that reward patient outcomes instead of relying on the old fee-for-service model.

The successful development and growth of an innovative health care business requires a combination of expertise and the agility to shift, pivot, and advance opportunities for innovation and transformation. In this complex and fast-moving industry, Crowell Health Solutions provides pragmatic advice and action-oriented solutions to help our health care clients achieve their strategic goals.
