About Us:

At SA Ignite we’re confronting some of healthcare’s most vexing challenges.

Healthcare providers now have to operate in the most dynamic and rapidly changing business environment
they’ve ever seen. Their revenue models are getting turned upside down with the shift from fee-for-service to
fee-for-value. They have to comply with complex, often opaque, program rules that create a heavy intellectual
and administrative burden. They have to use imperfect, often incomplete information to make decisions and
take action. These challenges are forcing them to reconsider their processes, management philosophies and
even their cultures.

That’s where we come in. We help our customers not just navigate today’s complex operating environment but
excel within it. We leverage our deep domain, technical and data expertise to help our customers achieve higher
standards of performance year after year. We are not “tool makers:” we combine powerful analytics that
surface improvement opportunities that are truly actionable with a management framework that engages all
stakeholders in realizing them. We don’t like half measures: our focus is on solving the whole problem of how to
deliver exceptional financial results in a value-based world.

Our people are our strength. We depend on our street smarts and a healthy dose of Midwestern humility to get
the job done. And, we do it all while having fun and not taking ourselves too seriously
