About Noam

Noam helps large healthcare systems implement strategies, operating models, and organizational enhancements to achieve sustainable competitive advantage in growth and strategy. Within our Healthcare Systems & Services Practice, he leads three key areas: provider system growth and strategy, provider growth advanced analytics, and provider implications of healthcare reform.

In partnership with health system leaders, Noam helps his clients develop service-line strategies, align physicians, partner with payors, create ambulatory networks, and pursue at scale merger and acquisition strategies in order to enhance strategic positioning, patient care, and access, and to drive financial results. Over the course of his 11 years at McKinsey, Noam has developed a deep and broad understanding of the healthcare value chain, having served pharmaceutical, medical device, and biotech companies, in addition to the major healthcare providers he works with today.

Examples of his work:

  • guiding the strategic planning process for a multifacility system, encompassing adult, acute, children’s, and rehabilitative care services
  • advising a leading not-for-profit healthcare system in a successful effort to launch a performance turnaround in two crucial markets
  • helping to set a comprehensive healthcare reform strategy for a leading for-profit healthcare system
  • directing the effort to help a regional payor define an innovative provider-partnership strategy
  • helping a regional health system develop its clinical programs in cardiovascular and orthopedic services

Strongly oriented toward using analytics to shape strategic planning, Noam has overseen the development of multiple proprietary McKinsey tools.
