Our partnership with Bootstrap will allow us to scale our resources to meet the complex needs of our growing client base of healthcare systems.

Catalyst Healthcare Advisors, a healthcare consulting firm for hospitals and health systems, has received an equity investment from Bootstrap Incubation, LLC. The funding will allow Catalyst to expand its portfolio of innovative performance improvement solutions in information technology, population health management, clinical transformation and cost restructuring.

“Our partnership with Bootstrap will allow us to scale our resources to meet the complex needs of our growing client base of healthcare systems,” said Stephen Furry, chief executive officer of Catalyst Healthcare Advisors.

Healthcare delivery systems are facing disruptive changes that are altering the competitive landscape. Declining inpatient volumes, the transition from a volume-based to a value-based payment model and the complexities associated with building a continuum of accountable care drive the need to find new sources of revenue and operate with far greater efficiency. Catalyst Healthcare Advisors helps providers embrace the challenge to deliver better outcomes at lower cost.

Parker Hinshaw, co-founder of Bootstrap Incubation and founder of maxIT, added, “I’ve known Steve professionally for more than 30 years, and respect his leadership and entrepreneurial spirit. I look forward to partnering with him.”
