At the precipice of tremendous change and disruption in the healthcare industry, Chartis is helping healthcare organizations navigate this new era to not just survive but to thrive. Clients look to Chartis as they navigate disruption, pursue growth, achieve financial sustainability, unleash technology, improve care models and operations, enhance clinical quality and safety, and advance health equity. Through bold thinking, incisive leadership, and powerful collaboration, Chartis helps clients pivot to new strategies and operating models.

Uniquely positioned to serve

Exclusively focused on the healthcare industry, Chartis offers a unique breadth and depth of capabilities to meet healthcare’s most pressing issues.

Chartis comprises Chartis Consulting, Chartis Clinical Quality Solutions, Jarrard, and Chartis Just Health Collective. While each division operates under its unique brand, what unites Chartis’ constellation of companies is an exclusive focus on serving the healthcare industry, sterling reputations in their domains, and exceptional talent committed to improving healthcare.

Chartis brings an unparalleled depth of expertise in strategic planning, performance excellence,
informatics and technology, digital transformation, health analytics, clinical quality and high reliability care, and strategic communications to help leading academic medical centers, integrated delivery networks, children's hospitals, healthcare service organizations, payers, and private equity organizations achieve transformative results.

Chartis is proud to serve 95% of the Best Hospitals Honor Roll, US News & World Report, 100% of the Top NIH-Funded Academic Health Systems, 95% of the largest not-for-profit health systems, and 100% of the Best Children’s Hospitals Honor Roll, US News & World Report. Through its Chartis Center for Rural Health, Chartis supports rural hospitals, health systems with rural affiliates and statewide rural health networks in more than 30 states. In addition to healthcare providers, Chartis partners with leading payers, health services and technology companies, and healthcare investors.

A shared dedication

Ask anyone at Chartis about the importance of what they do, and you will hear a deep commitment to providers, clinicians, patients, the community, and each other. Chartis attracts extraordinarily talented people with healthcare in their DNA—physicians, nurses, and consultants—all brought together through a shared dedication to its core values. Chartis attracts extraordinary talent from top MBA programs, industry, and other consulting firms through its unique value proposition—at Chartis, colleagues “love what they do, love who they do it with, and love who they do it for.”

In fulfillment of its mission, Chartis is focused internally on bringing together diverse talent and
perspectives and is committed externally to addressing health disparities and ensuring equal access to care for all.

In addition to its mission-driven client work, Chartis supports organizations making a difference in underserved communities through Chartis Cares, a multi-faceted program in which the firm's colleagues give back to their communities through pro bono consulting, charitable athletic events, philanthropic giving, and volunteer service.

Leading the way

Chartis continues to be a compelling voice on the healthcare stage, speaking and writing on industry-shaping topics related to financial sustainability, the provider enterprise, the health ecosystem of the future, partnerships, digital and advanced technologies, and high-reliability care. Thought leadership development is critical to the firm’s positioning—it has long been known for thought-provoking assertions on transforming healthcare and is focused on helping its clients anticipate and navigate what’s next. Early in the pandemic, Chartis established a COVID-19 Resource Center and created more than 30 pieces of content within three months to support provider organizations and rapidly developed new offerings to address clients’ needs. The firm also established several external affinity groups, drawing upon its deep relationships to bring together Chief Medical Officers, Chief Strategy Officers, and Chief Information Officers to share best practices and support one another through the crisis.

COVID-19 Update

As Chartis navigates the global COVID-19 health crisis, we remain committed as a firm to cultivating an environment where every colleague has the opportunity to grow, learn, and impact their clients and communities in meaningful ways. To further this mission during the pandemic we have created the Chartis HomeFront, a platform through which we connect all of our colleagues and share our respective HomeFront experiences. For instance, we’ve created new communication channels and resources including townhall forums, weekly newsletters, a work from home playbook, caregiver chats/resources, virtual happy hours, a community service interest group, virtual fitness classes, an employee-focused COVID-19 resource center and an enhanced on-demand training library.

From an external perspective, the Chartis team has rapidly mobilized to develop thought leadership, insights and new service offerings to address the acute challenges facing our healthcare clients. We are providing strategies that can be rapidly deployed to serve patients and ensure the health of the organizations we support as well as the broader healthcare industry.
