Evan King is the Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President, Consulting. Mr. King has led numerous complex assessment, strategic planning and transformative implementation engagements throughout California, Texas, Washington State, New York and other parts of the country. As EVP, Mr. King has guided the development of key services to assist our clients and partners in preparing for local, state and federal reform, with a particular focus on clinical integration, value-based payment readiness, financial modeling and population health analytics.

Mr. King is one of a handful of people, mostly within COPE Health Solutions, who has led the planning and implementation of large-scale Medicaid transformation engagements at a regional level within California, Texas and New York, successfully establishing new integrated delivery and financial alignment models across the care continuum. Results of engagements lead by Mr. King have been recognized and won state and national acclaim for their impact and success in improving efficiency and coordination of care. Within these large-scale engagements, in addition to overall planning, design and implementation, Mr. King’s areas of deep expertise include managed care contracting, population health management and ambulatory network development.

Mr. King led the development of a dual-market IPA for a large, non-profit health system in the Western U.S., which enabled the system to bring a new risk-bearing entity to the market for community physicians, FQHCs and employed physicians as part of a larger strategy to build a competitive narrow network within Los Angeles County. Through this work, Mr. King and his team have developed a series of financial models that enable health systems to accurately evaluate risk-bearing arrangements, management services infrastructure needs and population health management strategies, which are now used across the firm.

Currently, Mr. King is leading the planning and implementation of a multi-region integrated delivery network for a large academic medical center in NYC for 350,000 lives and a network of over 200 provider agencies, focusing on network development, population health and financial modeling.
