About Shubham

Shubham Singhal, a senior partner in McKinsey’s Detroit office, leads the firm’s Global Healthcare Practice. His primary areas of focus include issues of corporate strategy, growth strategy, M&A, business building, and large-scale performance transformation.

Shubham has extensively served payors—both national and regional, Blues and non-Blues—for over ten years. He also assists providers, healthcare IT, and pharmacy companies. In addition, he has served financial services institutions across banking and insurance.

Shubham leads McKinsey’s knowledge on the future of healthcare, with specific regard to the forces of: healthcare reform; the rise of the healthcare consumer (or, the wholesale-to-retail shift); rapidly advancing digital, big data analytics, and medical technologies; and risk disaggregation and reallocation across the healthcare system. Additionally, Shubham has also helped to define the structural and performance implications of this transformation for payors, providers, and services players across the healthcare value chain.

Shubham has led the significant expansion of McKinsey’s Healthcare Practice’s research through the McKinsey Center for US Health System Reform and the McKinsey Center for Healthcare Innovation. He has also augmented the breadth and depth of its client service capabilities through McKinsey Actuarial, McKinsey Healthcare Analytics, McKinsey Implementation, and the McKinsey Digital Health Transformation Initiative.
