Fiscal Health — Taking a Holistic View

If your hospital or healthcare system isn’t fiscally sound, it can’t meet the needs of patients and the community you serve. Whether you face a merger, acquisition or other strategic activity, or are having difficulty keeping costs down — you must stay true to your mission. And that can be difficult with changing healthcare reform and tax laws, evolving technology, rising expenses, greater needs for transparency and accountability, and the coming shift to outcome- and value-based care from a fee-for-service approach. Even non-traditional players are entering the healthcare space and could completely upend healthcare delivery. At Mercer, we draw on several decades of experience partnering with healthcare not-for-profits. In fact, we have a dedicated health care practice that stays current on trends and can help you address the complex issues you may be facing. Using our advice and intellectual capital, we can help your organization better navigate the healthcare transformation and succeed.

Adopt Enterprise-Wide Risk Management

Mercer’s dedicated healthcare investment consulting practice will partner with your healthcare institution to integrate investment strategy with your operating and financial objectives. To ensure that we allocate capital to its highest return opportunity and manage risk holistically, we take an enterprise-wide view of your financial situation. With multiple pools of capital that create complex challenges, we have specialist consultants who understand the risks and nuances of each pool. Your consulting team will work with these specialists to create your customized solution.

Mercer CARE — How We Partner With Health Systems

Risk management is at the core of a successful investment program.

From the start, your dedicated team will share our Comprehensive Analysis of Risk Exposures, or CARE philosophy. It is designed to help you expand from a singular focus on individual pools of capital to a broader, holistic enterprise view. By identifying key organizational risk factors such as interest rate exposure, bond covenants, pension-funded status volatility, unexpected large cash needs and planned expenditures, and how they are affected by different investment pools, CARE helps you think holistically and act strategically. This coordinated approach to asset allocation across investment pools not only balances these risks, but also creates opportunities to further the mission of your organization.

We then put CARE into action by building your customized solution — fine-tuned to your distinct mission, return goals, risk profile, and internal resources.
