Managing Director & Partner
Natasha Taylor is a leader in Boston Consulting Group’s Health Care practice. Her focus is on payer/provider topics including clinical and operating model transformation, payer/provider integration and partnerships, value-based payment, programmatic change, and digital innovation.
Natasha has extensive experience working on mergers and acquisitions with providers, payers, and physician groups. She has also led numerous transformation engagements, including an end-to-end cost and clinical function transformation for a national health system. In addition, she developed a growth blueprint for a national payer government business (Medicaid, Medicare Advantage), including end-to-end program transformation (strategy, product design, marketing, and sales and distribution).
Before joining BCG, Natasha worked at The Advisory Board Company, a health care research and consulting firm in Washington, where she focused on strategic planning and capital allocation guidance for hospitals.
The finances of the US health system are weak. If systemic issues are not resolved, the situation will worsen, with detrimental consequences for patient care and care equity.
Open-market business models—including exchanges, platforms, and hybrids—can transform the US health care industry, leading to more efficient, convenient, and cost-effective care.
Payers are reluctant to cover quality-of-life therapies without evidence that they also lower costs. Companies can convince them by taking this five-step approach.
Public health will be immeasurably harmed if providers and facilities do not begin providing the full portfolio of patient services as soon as local conditions safely allow.
Even with the federal government’s $100 billion stimulus package for the health care industry, US hospitals will still face significant financial pressures due to COVID-19.
