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.
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.
As Seen In
New data presents the confounding problem in addressing the addiction epidemic in America: the top two reasons why the 948,000 people who thought they needed SUD treatment and did not get it were 1) no health coverage or could not afford cost of SUD treatment (19.1 percent), and 2) did not find a program that offered the kind of treatment that was wanted (14.4 percent).
Recent CDC data demonstrates that the nation’s substance use disorder (SUD) epidemic has continued unabated since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Tym Rourke offers three areas of focus that could help strained community, safety net, and health care systems respond to both the current nature of the substance use epidemic and what it may become.
If we are to address our nation’s mental health and addiction crises, we must use every tool at our disposal to combat these emergencies.
