Guidehouse, a multinational management consultancy, and ReefPoint Group, a boutique consulting firm specializing in health IT for military and veteran agencies, have created a joint venture: Taurian Consulting.

The new service-disabled, veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) will combine the public sector experience of the two consultancies, and will focus on delivering healthcare innovation and transformation solutions to defense, federal, and commercial health markets.

Taurian will offer services aligning with ReefPoint’s areas of expertise, including health innovation and IT transformation, clinical management and analytics, data analytics, and supply chain optimization.

ReefPoint was founded in 2008 by Jeremy Toton, a US Naval Academy graduate. The firm’s clients include the US Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, US Air Force Surgeon General, and the Department of Veterans Affairs. The consulting firm has more than 30 employees across offices in Annapolis, MD and Vienna, VA.

Peter Anthony, president of ReefPoint, will serve as managing director of Taurian.

“This was a strategic decision to continue to provide the highest quality of support with robust and innovative technologies and solutions to create lasting, measurable impacts that positively affect the organizations we will serve together,” Anthony said.

Guidehouse is the much larger partner in the venture, with approximately 9,000 employees globally. Owned by Veritas Capital and created via the merger of PwC Public Sector with Navigant Consulting, Guidehouse offers management and technology consulting services to public sector and commercial clients in highly regulated industries.

“The joining of our two companies to form Taurian Consulting will provide new impact and value to clients of both firms within the government healthcare ecosystems, and I look forward to tackling challenges together and working with clients to shape their futures,” said Scott McIntyre, CEO of Guidehouse.

The DC-area-based consulting firm earlier this year named Douglas Martin and Saul Helman as life sciences co-heads and appointed Don Heckman as defense cyber solutions leader.
