Case Studies

Since starting our company in 2012, we have provided strategic advisory services to health care organizations nationally.  A few example projects are described below.

American Medical Association

The American Medical Association is bringing physicians together to prevent Type 2 Diabetes. Sage Health Strategy supported this effort by developing a model for the AMA to use to engage health systems on diabetes prevention. As a result, health system-based physician groups across the country are now screening and referring patients with pre-diabetes to CDC-certified Diabetes Prevention Programs.


Evolent Health is the third-party administrator for CountyCare, a Medicaid health plan. Sage Health Strategy worked with Evolent’s CountyCare provider relations team to build more effective and productive relationships with Medicaid providers and members during a major expansion of the health plan. This work included developing and executing on a member and provider outreach strategy.  We are now working with CountyCare on their open enrollment outreach strategy.

Surgical Care Affiliates

Prior to its  acquisition by Optum, SCA engaged Sage on market expansion strategies in numerous markets. Sage provided a deep-dive analysis in to numerous markets, including Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Denver and Columbus. We then made recommendations regarding the best go-forward approach for specific markets. This analysis was used by the development team in developing and prioritizing the sales approach.
