"The Day Health Strategies team helped Wellforce successfully launch one of the largest Medicaid accountable care organizations in Massachusetts. From developing a strong governance structure to weaving together a diverse group of provider organizations, the Day Health team provided invaluable assistance. With so many unknowns initially, we needed a team that could be versatile, knowledgeable and nimble in order to effectively design and implement our ACO. The firm’s staff has a broad and deep understanding of the healthcare system, combined with strategic planning and project management expertise. This powerful combination enabled us to respond to daunting timelines with organization and optimism, ultimately resulting in our ACO receiving high praise from the state. It is hard to imagine how our collective staff would have managed without the Day Health team’s support."
