Health

We help clients focus on their strengths to survive periods of uncertainty and prepare for growth opportunities.

Engage customers, create value

The basis for competition in healthcare is shifting dramatically at a pace not seen over the past 30 years. In the face of escalating costs, quality challenges and disparities in access to care, along with continued economic pressures in Europe, companies across all healthcare sectors are reassessing how best to serve and succeed in the market.

In the context of the UK, with the NHS facing a multi-billion pound budget shortfall over the coming years, key challenges remain in driving improvements in quality and integration of care delivery to ensure that people live healthier as well as longer lives. On the private side, cost-effective patient-centred solutions are needed to drive profitable growth and improvement in overall population health outcomes.

PwC’s Strategy& works with leading healthcare organizations in the UK and around the globe on all these issues and much more to navigate the different bases of competition and build the capabilities necessary to deliver lasting value. We combine deep industry knowledge with extensive functional expertise to help clients including payors, health systems and other providers, life sciences companies, public health agencies, health NGOs, and advocacy organizations.
