Why We’re Different
Our Core Belief
We believe that health is foundational to well-being, social interconnectedness, and economic development.
We push against the status quo by designing integrated health and social systems so that all communities, families, and individuals can thrive.
Our advisory services and specialties, partnership with the Health Care Council of Chicago, and convening of the Alliance for Addiction Payment Reform help mission-driven organizations find solutions and drive transformation in Chicago and nationwide.
As we work with our clients to minimize risk and maximize the health of their businesses, the hotline to health + benefits, property/casualty and insurtech intelligence with Third Horizon Strategies is a real advantage.
THS has been an invaluable partner in helping us stand-up our Building Blocks of Health Reform initiative–from serving as a strategic thought partner in our program development to lending expert analysis and research on policy issues.
Third Horizon Strategies feeds our health policy activities and gives us a window into stakeholder dynamics across the health care industry.
