Oliver Wyman 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.
