Our firm offers specialty in transformation of the health care sector.  We recognize that nonprofit and government organizations on the front lines providing health and human services are under-resourced and under pressure in a rapidly changing environment under the Affordable Care Act, requirements for integrated managed care and transitions to value-based purchasing.  New regulatory environments and cost curves also impact private clinical practices, requiring examination of profit centers and partnership opportunities.

We can help you to rapidly assess your organization’s position in changing market and regulatory conditions, scope partnership opportunities, and identify and streamline technology and other needs to assure your success and ability to focus on your mission.

We provide the following services:

Mergers, restructuring and partnerships.  We facilitate informal and formal partnerships for integrated managed care, as well as formal mergers and restructures to keep pace with market and regulatory conditions.  Learn more about our approach to mergers and restructuring.

Network planning.  We support Managed Care Organizations in assessing and analyzing behavioral health and other provider networks.

Change management and cultural transformation. As all health care providers integrate financial, physical health and behavioral health care functions in preparation for the transition to integrated managed care and value based contracting, JGA has deep expertise in managing complex change processes including culture change, adaptation to new EHR systems, and post-merger integration.

Community Impact, Community Health Needs Assessment, and Community Benefits planning processes.  We facilitate large scale systemic change processes involving multiple organizations and systems and data-driven approaches, bringing you to mutually beneficial approaches that leverage your community or groups’ strengths.
