About The Chartis Group

Founded in 2001 with the mission to materially improve the delivery of healthcare in the world, The Chartis Group is a comprehensive advisory and analytics services firm dedicated to the healthcare industry. With a depth of expertise in strategic planning, performance excellence, informatics and technology, and health analytics, Chartis helps leading academic medical centers, integrated delivery networks, children's hospitals and healthcare service organizations achieve transformative results.

The Chartis Group is comprised of experienced senior healthcare professionals and consultants who apply their knowledge of healthcare economics, markets, clinical models and technology to help each client address their most pressing issues. Chartis has offices in Boston, Chicago, New York, Minneapolis and San Francisco.

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.

Leading the way

The Chartis Group continues to be a compelling voice on the healthcare stage, speaking and writing on topics such as enterprise strategy, value-based care, health policy impact, health system and provider performance, health segment trends and issues, IT strategy, health analytics, digital health 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 11th year.

Chicago Gathering

Because Chartis consultants can live virtually anywhere, the firm works creatively to ensure that colleagues remain connected. In addition to participating in biannual all-firm events, Chartisans gather regularly for learning programs and cohort-based connectivity events. In July 2017, nearly 50 consultants in equivalent roles met in Chicago for two days of knowledge sharing sessions, leadership discussions, and a river cruise. Fortunately, the weather cooperated!

A Community Focus

Chartisans support their local communities in myriad ways, ranging from ongoing volunteering efforts to an annual firm-sponsored Community Service Day. On a sunny Friday in December 2016, Chartis colleagues congregated in seven cities across the U.S. to sort and pack food shipments at food banks, paint facilities serving low-income families, and prepare meals for a non-profit nutrition program for families living with critical and chronic illnesses. After a productive and inspiring day, one colleague commented, "Chartis is genuinely committed to giving back. This is why I'm here."

A Time for Celebration

Chartis colleagues from across the country gathered last summer in Park City, Utah for the firm's annual retreat, which celebrated the firm's 15th anniversary and another year working with the country's leading healthcare providers. After two days reflecting on the firm's impact and charting its course for the future, colleagues were joined by their families and guests for a weekend filled with zip-lining, rock climbing, hiking, biking and spa treatments. The weekend came to a close with a thank-you dinner at Utah Olympic Park, where Olympian ski jumpers performed acrobatic feats choreographed with music and fireworks.
