Health Innovation Center

Oliver Wyman launched the Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Center (OWHIC) in 2011 to promote positive change in healthcare. The Center's goal is to create a healthcare system that is driven by innovation and consumers' needs, creating value for companies and the public alike.

OWHIC champions innovation by envisioning market-based solutions to today’s and tomorrow’s challenges, and we have established a cross-industry community of thought-leaders to share and shape ideas. Based on the deep healthcare expertise of Oliver Wyman and drawing on its Leaders Alliance network of innovators across sectors and industries, OWHIC identifies and disseminates the ideas and practices that will transform healthcare.

OWHIC Leaders Alliance

The OWHIC Leaders Alliance is a coalition comprised of senior executives from all areas of healthcare who have committed to work collaboratively on key issues impacting consumer value and overall industry sustainability.

2018 Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Summit

Health Redefined: Breaking Boundaries to Build a Better Way

"Health Redefined: Breaking Boundaries to Build a Better Way" is the focus of the sixth annual Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Summit, taking place November 5 – 7 in Dallas. The event will convene an exclusive group of industry leaders for in-depth exploration of the redefinition of healthcare.

The Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Summit – an invitation-only event for senior-level executives – will challenge age-old assumptions in healthcare and will provide attendees with actionable insight on how to build a better way.

Health Redefined: Breaking Boundaries to Build a Better Way

Together, we will examine the inner workings of today’s in-flux industry and redefine its inevitable and subsequent trajectory. Our discussions will go well beyond tackling the traditional set of questions to think holistically, creatively, and openly about the market’s greater potential.

2017 Oliver Wyman Health Innovation Journal 

Insights From the Cutting Edge of an Industry in Transformation

This collection of insights revolves around topics that our community feels are driving the current healthcare discussion and will be central to the anticipated transformation of the industry over the next decade. It reflects the latest thinking at our firm and of transformational trailblazers, such as Highmark Health, Castlight Health, and Color Genomics. The Journal also features innovators from outside of the industry – American Airlines, as an example – who are making breakthroughs in areas like customer engagement with substantial implications for healthcare.
