About Jessica

Since joining in 2008, Jessica has served clients across the healthcare industry, including pharmaceuticals, payers and providers, and healthcare services. Her work has primarily been targeted to create healthcare value and leverage analytics to improve performance and outcomes. As the leader of McKinsey’s Advanced Analytics center of excellence within the Healthcare Practice, she focuses on helping clients leverage more advanced-analytics techniques (such as machine learning and artificial intelligence) to achieve these goals.

Examples of her recent client work include the following:

  • Advanced-analytics strategy, organization, and operating-model development for a regional payer looking to strategically leverage advanced capabilities and techniques
  • Medicare conversion-improvement support for a regional payer looking to leverage advanced analytics to increase its conversion of commercial members to Medicare Advantage as they age-in to Medicare eligibility
  • Value network strategy and development support for a local payer, to introduce a value network through a go-to-market approach with providers
  • Pricing and contracting strategy for a local provider system
  • Long-term-value strategy, working to develop a sustainable model for the payer to partner with major health systems to bend overall healthcare costs

Before joining McKinsey, Jessica conducted laboratory research in nanoparticle hyperthermia for cancer treatment at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
