Margin Improvement

When you are ready for strategic flexibility

​Health care providers, health plans, and life sciences companies are finding that generating margin is much more difficult in today’s post-reform world. Many are taking a close look at their financial performance, realizing that incremental improvements will not be enough to remain viable. Meanwhile, as organizations consider a range of new strategies and business models to win in the shifting market, they may need strategic flexibility enabled by efficient and lean operations in order to pivot and keep up with changing market demands.

How we can help

To flourish in a world of shrinking margins, companies can transform how they operate across the ecosystem. Winning in the marketplace involves having a clear, objective eye that can identify opportunities for improving financial performance across the organization while uncovering growth potential. But even the most elegant solutions may languish without effective execution. Traditional administrative cost reduction efforts are no longer enough and organizations should employ a series of bold plays that engage consumers and effect change across all elements of the income statement and balance sheet. Helping organizations make the leap to sustainable margins and strategic flexibility is where Deloitte leads.

Deloitte’s Margin Improvement (MI) practice has the breadth and depth of industry and functional knowledge to help life science and health care organizations build a foundation for profitable growth—without sacrificing quality or service. We can examine your entire organization for ways to improve financial performance, or we can focus on a specific area of concern.
