Margaret Guerin-Calvert is the founding President of the Center for Healthcare Economics and Policy (Center), a separate business unit in the Economic Consulting segment at FTI Consulting. The Center applies cutting-edge economics and quantitative methods to assist clients in developing and implementing market-based solutions across the spectrum of healthcare activity.

The Center uses “gold standard” models, including microsimulation and discrete event simulation, and extensive proprietary and public databases to assist clients in developing strategies that address fundamental changes in demand (e.g., declining inpatient admissions) and supply (e.g., shifts in the location of care delivery or new facilities) ongoing within a system or a community. The Center’s particular expertise is the ability to use probabilistic or predictive modeling that takes into account the impact of future changes in population health, migration, patient mix, or utilization on operations, finances, and capacity needs for health systems. These frame opportunities to evaluate how best proactively to “optimize” or re-optimize capacity or strategies proactively and with sound simulations at lower cost.

The Center collaborated with the Nashville Area Chamber’s Research Center, which spearheaded a partnership to commission an innovative healthcare pilot study to assess cost, quality, and access in the Nashville region. The “Assessment of Nashville Region Health, Cost, Access, and Quality: Results of a Pilot Study” has several features that distinguish it, including comprehensive assessment of physician supply and growth, use of extensive commercial claims data along with Medicare data to assess costs and utilization of healthcare services for specific chronic diseases (e.g., diabetes) to facilitate workforce assessments, and presentation in an analytical framework that provides for sound performance and comparative assessments.

Meg is also a founding director of Compass Lexecon (formerly, Competition Policy Associates), has an active practice before federal and international antitrust agencies on mergers and business practices, and in litigation, including healthcare, class certification, damages, and network industries. She is widely recognized for her economic and healthcare expertise and cogent economic analyses and has testified as a healthcare or industrial organization economist in U.S., Canada, New Zealand, and Europe, including the LIJ-Northshore, Sutter-Summit, and ProMedica-St. Luke’s mergers and served as economic expert for the Pennsylvania Insurance Department on the Highmark-West Penn Alleghany transaction. Her work includes efficiencies and competitive analysis of hospital, physician and health insurance transactions, capacity and excess capacity, managed care contracting practices and new insurance network configurations, modelling of health care reform, ACOs and integrated delivery networks, and employer wellness initiatives. She has advised on healthcare matters internationally including provider and insurance structures.
