During the past five years, the demand for health care consultants has increased because of the growing complexities in health care and the need for specialty services to address them. With an aging population of baby boomers, an increase in chronic diseases, growth in access to health care services, an increasingly complex regulatory environment, and new technologies and innovations, health care organizations are looking for partners, such as consultants, to help them navigate the changes they face. A career as a health care consultant can be challenging, highly satisfying and potentially lucrative. The industry outlook is bright and the salary for a management consultant in the United States averages more than $131,000 annually.
