Preferred Health Strategies, Ltd. PHS is a national health care consulting company specializing in strategic and business planning for medical device manufacturers, hospitals, physician groups and other health care organizations.

Preferred Health Strategies has been in business since 1987. Our principals come from the payer industry, both public and private, where they were involved in the development and operation of some of the largest managed care plans in the country. Preferred Health Strategies was formed as a way of bringing this payer expertise to all sectors of the industry, including pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, large hospital systems and physician networks. For over 25 years, we have used our extensive relationships with the payers and our in-depth knowledge of reimbursement, contracting and managed care, for the benefit of our clients.

What makes us unique?

  • We view every client as a separate engagement - nothing is cookie cutter. We use our prior experience and expertise to guide our clients but we never assume that any two projects are exactly alike.

  • The team you meet at the first meeting is the same team you will working with throughout the project. We don’t bait and switch junior staff on our clients. Our principals actually roll up their sleeves and do the work.
  • Our knowledge base is wide and deep. We have worked with clients in virtually every sector of the industry and can bring the perspective of the provider and the payer to the medical device industry and vice versa.
  • We are comfortable at all levels of the organization. We can work as effectively with CEOs and Vice Presidents as we can with the people within the organization who are responsible for getting the task done. This means that we can help create the strategic vision for the organization and then follow through on making it happen.
