Case Studies

 
 

A Major Urban Academic Medical Center

A major urban health system, at the forefront of both clinical care and research, underwent a rapid expansion over a five-year period, adding hospitals, ambulatory sites, and a medical school to its system. Their strategic plan, written nearly ten years earlier, did not reflect this new infrastructure. The system needed to reimagine the future of patient care and the future of seamless operations in the context of this vastly changed landscape. Rockingstone worked closely with the strategic planning team, interviewed dozens of leaders throughout the system, balanced the politics of an innately delicate process, and drafted a revised strategic plan for the system over a period of nine months.

A Global Health IT Security Company

A global health care IT security company, with an industry-leading platform addressing critical compliance and security challenges, recognized that a key legislative change might affect its product. The Company engaged Rockingstone to help them understand this new law – the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) – and we identified new opportunities for the product given the legislative change. We then produced a clear and accessible white paper on a MACRA provision that required every Medicare recipient in the nation to receive a new beneficiary identifier. We also wrote several posts on the topic for the client’s blog, created a slide deck for the client to use with new and existing customers, and led a Becker’s webinar with the client to explain the MACRA provision to customers and potential buyers.

 
 

Rockingstone’s partners, Jordanna Davis and Jacqueline Lampert, began working together as staff members in the United States Senate in 2006, continuing through the creation of the Affordable Care Act. Their work, then and now, is driven by a strong belief that the health care system can work better for everyone who touches it: from patients to payers, providers to policymakers.
