Helping healthcare providers transform performance in labor, external spend, clinical operations, and capital through our unique combination of deep industry experience, advanced analytics, and cutting-edge tools. Our team of physicians, nurses, data scientists, product designers, and system engineers are committed to supporting healthcare providers as they help clients navigate an increasingly complex healthcare landscape. While working to boost their performance, we also help them build the health of their organization to sustain long-term excellence.

What we do

  • Performance-improvement-opportunity diagnostics - We rapidly diagnose and identify performance-improvement opportunities across labor, external spend, capital, and clinical operations by deploying our proprietary tools and analytical capabilities.
  • End-to-end supply-chain transformation - We help redesign supply-chain organizations and processes, support contracting to reduce unit cost, identify opportunities to drive out inefficiencies, support implementation of utilization-based initiatives and related clinical-engagement structures, and assist in performance management and capability building to promote sustainability.
  • Workforce-composition and -spend optimization - We take a holistic focus on labor, recognizing that it is the people in an organization who drive culture and experience, while also ensuring the safe delivery of high-quality patient care. Our experts, proprietary tools, proven transformation approaches, and capability-building focus enable us to support healthcare organizations in a highly tailored way and achieve their workforce objectives, from reducing workforce turnover to optimizing staffing efficiency to empowering clinicians to practice at the top of their licenses.
  • Capital-expenditure strategy for construction and medical equipment - We support construction projects end to end, including strategic alignment, design, procurement, and execution. Our clients typically save 10 to 20 percent of in-scope capital expenditures while increasing on-time delivery, improving customer experience, and maintaining flexibility. Additionally, we help optimize the process for medical-equipment procurement.
  • Clinical-operations improvement through technology and analytics - We diagnose, design, and implement changes in clinical-operations models to improve the quality, efficiency, and cost of care across delivery settings (such as emergency departments, operating rooms, inpatient services, ancillary services, outpatient clinics, and ambulatory surgery centers). We help enable rapid improvements in clinical performance through use of our proprietary advanced analytics, performance-management systems, and proven operational toolkits.

Improving healthcare quality and access with national health systems and public payers and providers.

Payers

Helping payers optimize health care delivery and improve corporate results across all capabilities. To help healthcare payers health insurance companies navigate an increasingly complex environment, Fijishi brings an unparalleled depth of experience from decades of work in healthcare. We have led projects in a variety of topics and supported business performance and growth with our distinctive capabilities in operational and consumer excellence, digital, technology, analytics, and capability building. We help payers make the following moves:

  • grow across a broad spectrum of customer-facing dimensions, including customer experience, marketing, sales, and ecosystem strategy and implementation
  • develop and embed operational- and claims-excellence programs aimed at financial stability and medical-cost management, including payment integrity
  • create innovative population-health and care-management programs, including strategy, design, and implementation
    build the skills necessary to implement improvement programs and to ensure sustainability and continuous capability building
  • set up for success and be able to realize new opportunities in increasingly digitized business models

Providers

Helping hospitals and healthcare providers transform their performance and improve patient-experience and health outcomes
Innovations in healthcare delivery and provider organisations are helping hospitals deliver better care. However, economics in the healthcare sector remain challenging. In an environment where it is imperative to strengthen clinical quality, increase delivery of personalized care, and improve the patient experience—while also enhancing management efficacy and productivity—we help healthcare executives redefine their strategies, identify and capture opportunities, eliminate waste and variability, optimize resources and leverage data and best practices.

We help providers navigate this complex landscape by introducing innovations in care delivery and management along every step of the journey, from understanding opportunities for improvement to implementing changes. We have led projects addressing a broad range of issues and draw upon our international experience for best practices and key insights.
We support healthcare providers take the following actions:

  • think through key trends in their complex environment to inform their approach to innovation, digital health, advanced analytics and Artificial Intelligence, including increasing the use of automation and harnessing healthcare data to introduce new business models
  • adopt best in class processes to improve quality, reduce cost, and optimize productivity
    focus on the fundamental redesign of frontline clinical care to provide for sustainable change over the long term
  • use bottom-up planning to ensure that clinicians and managers own initiatives and that initiatives are concrete and actionable—they move through a structured stage-gate process, from ideation to realization
  • improve the patient and employee experience—for example, by involving patients more closely in care delivery
    address the mind-sets and cultures of clinical and nonclinical staff to increase an organization’s agility and achieve lasting results

Health Systems

Helping redesign health systems to improve outcomes, quality of care, and access to care. All healthcare systems face a common set of challenges: changing demographics with an aging population, associated increases in the prevalence of long-term conditions, increasing recognition of the variation in quality of care across providers, and growing spend on health and care.

We support health and care systems, including governments, regional authorities, local councils, public and private payers and providers (hospitals, community- and mental-health providers, and primary-care providers) set strategic priorities, design effective and efficient systems, build capabilities, and implement innovative, high-quality, and cost-effective delivery models to improve access to care and deliver better health outcomes and patient experiences.

We leverage our substantial, global experience in working with private and public health and care leaders and a deep understanding of all aspects of health-system transformation, catalyzed by experts in healthcare, business, and economics, to solve the most pressing problems. We work with health and care systems to enable high-quality, cost-effective care—for example, organizational form; workforce transformation; incentives and payment mechanisms, such as outcome-based commissioning; supporting regulation; data transparency; advanced analytics; best-practice guidance, such as standardized care pathways; patient education; clinical leadership; performance management and culture; and the widespread adoption of technology and digital.

What we do

  • Development of the case for change - We support health and care systems with a range of propriety tools and databases to quantify rapidly how well any system or region is performing. We look at clinical quality of care, health outcomes, patient experience, access to care, social determinants of care, and cost efficiencies.
  • Creation of effective strategies - We work with health and care systems, regions, payers, and groups of providers to build a vision for the future of services to optimize the delivery of care to the populations they serve.
  • Development of innovative models of care - We work with health systems—for example, innovative primary- and community-care providers, networks of care providers, and high-throughput elective centers—to explore new models of care.
