Strategic health policy consulting today, to

enhance value in our transforming system tomorrow.

As noted in the New England Journal of Medicine: Policymakers have been advised to "systematically look across silos to consider the effects that an initiative in one sector will have on consumers in another — and on providers overall.  To do so, they must have a clear understanding of the trade-offs at hand and the interaction of multiple policies and regulations aimed at improving quality and value."

 

Enhance Value employs a systematic, cross-silo, multi-stakeholder approach for each client, regardless of project scope.  Enhance Value anticipates possible trade-offs up front, to enable feasibility and efficiencies for a client's own decision-makers.  Principal and Founder Lee Rucker is a results-oriented professional with decades of health policy, advocacy and public affairs leadership and staff roles with:

•  a patient safety coalition working to advance patient-clinician
   communication about the safe, appropriate use of medicines,
