Heidrick & Struggles’ Managed Care team serves a diverse group of clients, including health insurance, managed care and pharmacy benefits management, medical malpractice, reinsurance, group health benefits and risk management. We know from our work in the field that the leadership challenge is to create and communicate a new value proposition to healthcare providers and consumers.
Companies in these areas are competing for pre-eminence within an industry deeply affected by Medicare and Medicaid issues, as well as the rising costs of pharmaceuticals and technology.
Our team has significant experience in recruiting board members, chief executives, medical officers, finance executives, IT leaders, legal and commercial leaders for some of the largest health insurers. We also work in niche functions around provider networking, contract management, quality and product development.
We frequently collaborate with other healthcare and life sciences verticals as well as financial services and technology teams to deliver prompt, creative leadership solutions. Our team also closely aligns with our Leadership Consulting Practice advising organizations on succession planning, assessments and board effectiveness.
Leadership across many healthcare industry channels are struggling with the transition of the healthcare marketplace from a provider-dominated, decision-making enterprise, to a consumer-directed, consumer-controlled system. Managed care organizations will take the lead in reforming healthcare delivery and having the right leadership is critical to how they utilize this opportunity.
