I advise. I write. I speak.
My lens as a health economist is broad: I collaborate with client-stakeholders across the health/care ecosystem. I know that health is where we live, work, play, pray, learn, and shop. I appreciate that “place,” our physical geography, is a strong influence on the social determinants of health like nutritious food, a good education, clean water, safe streets, green spaces, community (vs. isolation, a steady job, health security, et. al.). Our ZIP code or postal code is at least as important as our genetic code.
I founded my advisory firm, THINK-Health, LLC, in 1992 following ten years working in health care management consultancies in the U.S. and Europe. At THINK-Health, we focus at the convergence of health, technology & people – especially patients, consumers, care providers, and communities.
Our toolkit of expertise includes:
- Scenario, strategic and business planning
- ‘Trend weaving’ and forecasting
- Health policy analysis
- Team training on specific health/tech/policy issues
- Ideation and facilitation
We work across the entire health ecosystem and have advised organizations serving every segment including:
- Consumer goods companies targeting health and sustainability [the broad range from “A” (autos) to “Z” (Zappos)]
- Financial services
- Health providers
- Hospitality and travel
- Patient advocacy
- Payors (health plans, employers, public sector)
- Life science companies (biotech, pharma, med device)
- Real estate for health and wellness
- Retail health, especially the pharmacy and grocery
- Technology, consumer and clinical
