Dan established Hilvert Advisory in 2013 and has advised clients in Aged Care; Private Health Insurance; Telehealth; Disability; Home Care; Clinical Practice and Public Hospital. Previously Dan ran Medibank’s Corporate Development function which involved a series of investments that transformed the organisation from ‘passive health insurer’ into ‘active healthcare player’. Dan then founded Medibank’s telehealth business, ‘Anywhere Healthcare’ – it delivers Specialist consultations to GPs and patients in rural areas and was acquired by Telstra Health in 2014. Prior to Medibank, Dan had a Corporate Finance (ANZ) and Treasury (Colonial Group) background. Medibank accomplishments include:
Ascertain where organizational value is generated and how to un-tap more of it. Quantification wherever possible.
Value based modelling and quantitative benchmarks wherever sensible
Technical aspects of an investment case should be communicated in crystal clear language back to Management & Board. No one should shy away from reporting Risk and Opportunity Cost.
Clarity via thorough diligence. Difficult decisions usually become easier once added light is shed onto the problem.
Messaging is everything. Your strategy will fail without great messaging.
Meaning Hilvert forms a view post and then corroborates with Management and Board. Almost always, views become aligned following that process.
