Starling Advisor was established in 2012 to create support for improving the health of underserved populations through strengthening the healthcare Safety Net. At that time the Affordable Care Act was enacting dramatic changes across the healthcare marketplace and many health centers faced increasing privatization of their funding sources.
Today, health centers continue to adapt to uncertain federal policy, increased competition, and rising healthcare costs but shrinking Medicaid budgets. Starling has now worked with health centers in over 30 states and we continue to believe that health centers are innovators with solutions to offer the whole healthcare system.
We believe in the safety net.
Starling Advisors has seen firsthand the impact that health centers and safety net providers play in their communities. While the Accountable Care Act (ACA) has ushered in many new opportunities for safety net providers, the demands and requirements that come with these opportunities often bring new challenges. Starling is here to help.
Starling Advisors is the premier consulting firm working with health centers and the safety net to organize and develop new models of sustainable, innovative, and community-centered care. With clients in
over thirty states, strong partnerships with national organizations like the National Association of Community Health Centers, and a wide range of projects, Starling brings a significant and meaningful resources, experience, knowledge to the table.
Starling is experienced in providing strategic consultation, technical assistance, and support for clients in several key areas: organizational and program development, financial optimization, strategic planning, PCMH recognition, partnership development with payers and health systems, clinical workflows, clinical integration strategies, data and HIT planning, fund development and sustainability planning.
