Strategy Development


Evolent's Blueprint is a strategic and operational plan created to specifically answer the key questions your organization will face when evaluating how to build, optimize or grow your value-based business.


We are operators

The Blueprint is developed by a team of clinical, technical and operational experts who are actively managing value-based businesses across the nation

We build realistic models

Our strategies are informed by real-world experience, resulting in operational roadmaps and financial projections that are realistic and achievable 

We go deeper

Our detailed assessment of critical success factors spans technology, care management operations, physician alignment, payer contracting and more

We speak your language

Our goal is to collaborate with you in crafting your vision – not to tell you what your vision should be


value business strategy

We define the scope of your potential opportunity and work with you to identify the value business partners you’ll need to create and champion a sustainable go-to-market strategy

clinical and operational capabilities

We assess your organization's current clinical and operational capabilities and collaboratively develop a plan to address gaps and build the capabilities needed to execute on the value-based business strategy

financial business case

We build financial projections to illustrate the impact of population health initiatives on your health system's bottom line and outline the investment required to stand up your value-based business


The Evolent team has worked in more than 25 markets and continues to partner with health systems nationwide to make their value vision a reality. Using the Blueprint as a guide, we've helped our partners launch or grow a value-based business uniquely suited for their specific business goals. Here are just a few of the many ways we've helped our partners succeed:

Grow or Launch a Provider-Sponsored Health Plan

We've worked with our partners to create new health plan products, redesign existing offerings and support the ongoing management of health plan products across several lines of business, including employee, commercial and government populations

Enter into New Payer Partnership Deals

We've helped our partners negotiate multiple value-based payer risk contracts and build the operational capabilities needed to exceed quality and cost targets to generate significant financial returns

"It's change that we've needed to make, and now we have a path through the Blueprint."
