Blue Thorn Inc provides consulting services to government, providers, health plans, the pharmaceutical industry, professional organizations, academia, and IT/solution and diagnostics companies to move toward viable VBC and payment models. Key areas of expertise include delivery system transformation, benefit and health policy redesign, successful medication management optimization and cost reduction, effective use of diagnostics, and physician/team clinical model execution risk strategy.
Clients may need an "independent" advisor to review and help validate or question recommendations of consulting firms or vendor partner capabilities that represent major financial and execution risks. Blue Thorn Inc can be that extra set of eyes and provide a "sniff test" - at very low cost- to help uncover factors - that gap between what looks perfect and is actually "doable" for a particular organization.
