About The Chartis Group


Planning the future of healthcare

The Chartis Group is a health care management consulting with a base in four major U.S. cities. It handles both coasts with a presence in San Francisco, Boston and New York, and has the middle ground covered by an office in Chicago. The firm's client list includes leading healthcare organizations at home and abroad with a collective yearly patient list in excess of 20 million people. Among those clients are 81 percent of the U.S. News honor roll hospitals, nine out of the top-10 U.S. children's hospitals, 18 of the top 25 cancer centers, over 50 of the top academic medical centers, and a host of other leading medical organizations. 

For each of those clients, Chartis offers a range of services designed to help them plan for the future in a rapidly changing industry, and to execute on those plans. The firm's strategic planning services unit starts with data and analytics to help clients find insights and build strategies that will shape the future of their organizations. Clinical transformation builds on that planning by helping clients to develop integrated healthcare systems built around three core elements: a common philosophy of care; a single system of care; and information management and enabling tools. Finally, the firm's services in alignment and accountable care help clients to pull together the various elements of healthcare delivery for optimal performance.


A healthy understanding

The Chartis Group does not boast of a magical methodology behind its work. Instead, it insists that what sets it apart from other consulting firms is that its consultants understand that they will not be able to just come in and force their changes upon clients. Instead, they take a more measured approach, learning the ins and outs of their clients' business, discovering who they are, what their challenges are and where they want to go. 

To ensure that their more individualized solutions are effective, the firm follows the following core tenets. For change to be long lasting, it must begin with an understanding of the organization's economic and operating requirements, as well as knowledge of the market in which it is competing. If strategies are implemented without this understanding, they will either be ineffective or only short lived. The firm also relies on great deal of data and proven solutions to confidently back up its decisions and get the desired results.

A Time for Celebration

Chartis colleagues from across the country gathered this summer at the Stowe Mountain Resort in Vermont to celebrate an exceptional year advising many of 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 lobster dinner, bagpipes, and fireworks hosted by the founding partners as a 'thank you' to Chartis colleagues and their loved ones.

Captivating New Space

The Chartis Group's Chicago office space has doubled! To accommodate its rapid growth, Chartis added another floor to its loft-style office in the River North neighborhood of Chicago. The new space is a reflection of the firm's culture: open, fun-loving, and inspiring, with desks made of antique wooden doors, a "living wall", a putting green, and several one-of-a-kind design touches that encourage a flow of fresh ideas and collaboration.

Leading the Way

Chartis continued to be a compelling voice on the healthcare stage, speaking on topics such as "Market-Based Strategic Positioning for Value," "Building the Super-Clinically Integrated Network," and "The Primacy of Partnerships in Competitive Pediatric Environments". The firm also hosted the Women's Healthcare Executive Roundtable this past spring in Chicago, where participants discussed innovative approaches to addressing healthcare's intractable problems.

Making a Difference

This year the firm rolled out "Chartis Cares", a program designed to extend the firm's impact in healthcare through pro bono consulting, community service, and grants to progressive healthcare organizations in underserved communities. Through Chartis Cares, the firm's members have dedicated significant time and resources to the communities in which they live and work, consistent with the firm's mission to be a positive force of change in the healthcare industry.
