The health care industry is facing unprecedented disruption leading to dramatic changes. Organizations that can transform to address those challenges can turn disruption into opportunity. The Willis Towers Watson Health Care practice can help you tackle these challenges and find opportunities to grow.

Some of the issues facing the industry include:

  • Health care consumerism
  • Industry consolidation
  • Compensation
  • Data breaches, cyber crime and theft of patient information
  • Talent retention
  • Rising costs

These disruptions pose threats, but many also offer opportunities for organizations to redefine themselves. In order to succeed in an era of disruption, an organization requires the right people, risk and capital strategies.

We recognize that every health care provider and facility is unique in their risk financing and risk control needs, particularly as they confront the revolutionary changes in the industry.

Effective use of capital

Mounting cost pressures and industry consolidation are forcing nonprofit health care organizations to adopt new capital management practices.

Larger organizations, with sizeable endowments, are better suited financially to adapt to the challenges of disruption. However, some smaller organizations lack the scale necessary, and instead are opting to merge or create new affiliations.

Whether your organization is looking for a new endowment management strategy or plans to merge, Willis Towers Watson's investment advisory services and M&A solutions are available to help.

In an era of disruption, the Willis Towers Watson Health Care practice can help you address your people, risk and capital needs, so you can meet goals and seize new opportunities.
