Watch: About Optum Advisory Services

See how we bring diverse healthcare perspectives together to tell a story with data that helps inform decisions about processes, costs and care delivery.

[MICHELE MOLDEN]
Being involved with organizations who, their business is the life and death of people every day means something more.

[JAY HAZELRIGS]
Our work is focused on patients, everyday people. So it makes it real for us.

[MITCH MORRIS]
How do we migrate away from some of the things that we’re good at in this country like sick care, and really get in to health care and keeping people healthy?

[MARY LARSON]
You have to look across the entire spectrum.

[JOHN SIMON]
It’s not just payers and providers, it’s employers, it’s the government. It’s individual businesses, it’s small businesses, it’s big businesses.

[DAN GOLD]
So really it is about how do we understand what the ultimate mission and vision is for an organization.

[INDERBIR SINGH]
The unique thing about Optum is the fact that we are both a service provider as well as operator. And that uniquely positions us to be able to bring to bear some of the most deep experiences that are required to be able to solve health care problems.

[MARY LARSON]
We have a great mix of operational expertise, consulting experience, and many of us have actually come from the services side of the industry.

[DEREK PEDERSON]
In our advisory role, we get to kind of bring those perspectives together to tell a story with data, to help inform the decisions that they’re making.

[JOHN SIMON]
Then you’re talking about the opportunity to change processes, you’re changing cost, you’re talking about the opportunity to change the way health care gets delivered.

[ALI SHIRVANI-MAHDAVI]
If we come back with a solution for a client, we also have the programs, the tools, the products that can help actually implement it.

[JAMES GREEN]
And by the end of the engagement, they have learned how to effectively create change within their organization.

[EILEEN RUSSO]
They understand that what we are going to do for them is going to be unique for them, and not a prescription that would work for any other organization.

[JIM DOLSTAD]
Working for Optum Advisory Services is super exciting. It hits the actuarial triple aim of having great data, super platforms, and really smart people to work with.

[ALI SHIRVANI-MAHDAVI]
So we can provide our clients with an end to end solution that there isn’t another company in the world that can do so.

[JOHN SIMON]
There isn’t anybody else that really can make those statements. They have smart people, they’ll buy the data from someone, they don’t know what to do with it. We’ve got the whole package here. And that’s how we’re going to change the way health gets done.
