The Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Center


The Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Center (OWHIC) was created to develop and promote market-driven solutions to the crisis of high cost and poor quality that afflicts the healthcare systems of the developed world. Based on the deep healthcare expertise of Oliver Wyman and drawing on a network of innovative leaders across industries, OWHIC identifies and disseminates the ideas and practices that will transform healthcare. Our goal is to create a healthcare system driven by innovation and the needs and desires of consumers, creating value for companies and the public alike.
