Josh Michelson

Partner, & Director of OWHIC Leaders Alliance - Health & Life Sciences
Based in Chicago, Josh is partner in Oliver Wyman’s Health and Life Sciences practice and serves as a director for the OWHIC Leaders Alliance.

He advises senior executives across the industry on new business model creation for the converging health and wellness marketplace – partnering with health systems, health plans, health IT companies, consumer tech, and retail pharmacies, as they pursue value and consumer-based models. Josh has helped these organizations address the full gamut of their change and growth agenda and increase the pace, scale, and impact of innovation – from setting their strategic course to designing the new business blueprints, driving clinical model transformation, fostering cross-ecosystem partnerships, and commercializing the breakthrough models.

Before turning his attention to the US healthcare system, Josh spent years working with international leaders to eradicate diseases like polio and measles. Josh, who once grew up thinking he’d one day become a professional baseball player like his childhood idol (and fellow lefty) Ted Williams, also enjoys making lists of his favorite restaurants, especially within his culinary-renowned home of Chicago.
