Panda Health Forms Strategic Alliance with Chartis

The strategic alliance powers complete digital health transformation efforts for hospitals and health systems.

March 29, 2023 (Atlanta, GA)—Today, Panda Health, healthcare’s marketplace for digital innovations, announced a strategic alliance with Chartis, a comprehensive healthcare advisory firm dedicated to helping clients build a healthier world.

Collectively, the two companies provide health systems with a full suite of digital health transformation services including:

  • Strategy
  • Solution evaluation and selection
  • Contracting
  • Technical integration
  • Change management
  • Value realization and ROI analysis

“We are thrilled to enter this alliance with Chartis,” said David Harvey, CEO, Panda Health. “Chartis’ deep expertise in digital transformation closely aligns with Panda’s mission and together we holistically address what health systems need to solve some of their most pressing challenges: a strategic plan for digital transformation and the ability to execute that plan economically, safely, and at-speed.”

Healthcare leaders recognize that digital solutions support key initiatives like improving patient care and outcomes, operational inefficiencies, workforce optimization, provider burnout, and patient access. However, with more than 10,000 digital health solutions on the market they are faced with making important technology decisions in a noisy and challenging environment. The cost of implementing the wrong solution can create significant frustrations and risks across the healthcare organization, impacting finances, already overburdened resources, and patient care.

Panda Health makes it faster and easier for health systems to adopt industry-leading technology and automation solutions by assessing those technologies across a multitude of different categories, minimizing the risk involved with the vendor selection process.

“We are excited about our new strategic alliance with Panda Health,” said Tom Kiesau, Chartis’ Chief Innovation Officer and Leader of the Digital Transformation practice. “The combination of Panda’s one-of-a-kind digital marketplace with Chartis’ recognized leadership in digital transformation consulting will be a powerful resource for clients who are committed to digitally transforming their businesses to respond and lead in the increasingly complex and challenging care delivery landscape.”

Chartis continues to lead in digital transformation. In the 2023 Best in KLAS Report, KLAS named Chartis #1 in Digital Transformation Consulting for the second year in a row and #1 in overall Healthcare Management Consulting for the third consecutive year. In February, Chartis rated #1 in the IT Advisory Services 2023 Performance Report, also published by KLAS.
