About The Chartis Group

Founded in 2001 with the mission to materially improve the delivery of healthcare in the world, The Chartis Group is the largest national advisory services firm fully dedicated to the healthcare industry. The firm is comprised of more than 300 senior healthcare professionals and consultants who apply a deep knowledge of healthcare economics, markets, clinical models, technology and organizational dynamics to help clients achieve unequaled results. 

Chartis serves clients across the country with offices in Boston, Chicago, Minneapolis, Needham, New York, Portland and San Francisco. The firm provides strategic and economic planning, value-based care, advanced performance, and informatics and technology consulting services and decision support tools to the country's leading healthcare providers. It has worked with over two-thirds of the academic medical centers on the U.S. News and World Report "Honor Roll of Best Hospitals," seven of the 10 largest integrated health systems, four of the five largest not-for-profit health systems, nine of the top 10 children's hospitals, emerging and leading accountable care organizations, hundreds of community-based health systems, and leading organizations in healthcare services. 

A healthy understanding

The Chartis Group believes in working alongside its clients, learning the nuances of each situation, objectives and challenges and building relationships that go beyond the surface. Its advisors utilize methodologies and tools that are tailored to each client and their unique needs, supported by an overarching approach rooted in four core elements: a focus on underlying economics, maintaining interaction between strategy and operations, rigorously employing data, and a resolute attention to execution and results. 

Making a Difference

In addition to its mission-driven client work, The Chartis Group supports organizations making a difference in underserved communities through Chartis Cares, a multi-faceted program in which the firm's colleagues give back to their communities through pro bono consulting, charitable athletic events, philanthropic giving and volunteer service. 

Chartis also launched its Everyday Acts of Wellness holiday campaign in 2015, emphasizing the large impact small acts of wellness can have on those around us. 

Leading the Way

The Chartis Group continues to be a compelling voice on the healthcare stage, speaking and writing on topics such as MACRA, systems of care, pediatric trends, population health management, consortium model networks, healthcare providers as information management companies, IT's role in enterprise strategy and care delivery transformation. The firm also continues to support dialogue among female executives in the industry through its annual Women's Healthcare Executive Roundtable, now in its 10th year.
