Mark Salierno is a Principal with The Chartis Group and a leader in the Strategy and Partnership practices. With over 15 years of experience in management consulting, including more than 12 years of experience in the healthcare sector, he has facilitated the development and implementation of complex strategies and partnerships between physicians and hospitals. His work with Academic Medical Centers (AMCs), health systems, and faculty plans/large physician groups is primarily focused on partnership development, mergers and acquisition evaluation, academic-community partnership development, ambulatory network development, and service line strategy and operations. In recent years, Mark served as an “honest broker” developing the strategy and key terms for an academic medical center acquisition of an independent community hospital. He also played a similar role for a whole-hospital joint venture between an academic medical center and a community hospital. He was also the project manager for sell-side strategic options evaluation and negotiation and deal closure support for a standalone community hospital that affiliated with an AMC. He has developed several clinical service line strategies for disciplines including cardiovascular care, mother-baby care, fetal therapy, primary care, and behavioral health.
Before joining Chartis, Mark was a Consultant and Project Manager for two consulting firms. Working at a global management consulting firm, he specialized in hospital revenue cycle management. As a firm-designated expert in front-end patient flow and revenue cycle software, he led teams to design and implement processes and software around patient scheduling, pre-registration, registration, collections and emergency department workflows to improve hospital financial and operational performance. At a Chicago-based management consultancy, Mark managed projects focused on organization redesign and workforce planning.
