We do what we love and love what we do. So what is that?

Catalyst Healthcare Consulting, Inc. scans the regulatory, policy, political, and stakeholder environments to create comprehensive strategies that achieve our clients’ objectives. We draw from our experience across the spectrum of healthcare stakeholder organizations; through direct interactions with the FDA, CMS and other federal agencies, we help to advance our clients’ agendas. We also keep a finger on the policy pulse of Capitol Hill, and offer a general enhanced understanding of goings-on in DC.

We build strategic action plans that drive the fast-moving regulatory environment, develop multiple options for our clients to engage and respond, and facilitate collaboration across key stakeholders.

Our regulatory intelligence gathering is designed to inform corporate strategy. Our relationships and position within DC enable us to serve as an early warning system for policy developments that create opportunities or signal challenges that could affect your organization’s pipeline/products or objectives. 

Much of what we provide is a result of years of experience in DC – with FDA, trade associations, Capitol Hill and working closely with advocacy groups. We have the connections and the subject matter expertise to surface critical information quickly, using reliable sources to inform strategy development and business decisions.

Maximizing current and future policy opportunities requires precision. We work in partnership with our clients to extract the signals from the noise, and develop and implement on-point, targeted approaches that harness emerging policy issues to advance our clients’ goals.
With the vast array of stakeholder voices involved in health policy, we are here to ensure your voice is heard. We create policy options that support our clients’ objectives, as well as those of FDA or other federal agencies.  Both in the US and internationally, Catalyst helps to shape policies as they develop.
Identification of, and cooperation with, allies is key to maximizing opportunities, given the many players converging to form emerging health policy. We facilitate collaboration and networking opportunities across the healthcare spectrum: between and among industry, patient and consumer advocacy groups, professional organizations and academics.
