Membership guide

Welcome to our UHC, UHG, and Optum colleagues


For more than 40 years, Advisory Board has sought to answer health care’s toughest questions with unbiased, disciplined research and analysis. Since the firm’s acquisition by Optum in 2017, we’ve continued to support our member organizations with industry leading research—research that we’re thrilled to now be able to share with our colleagues at Optum and UnitedHealth Group.

Not sure where to start with Advisory Board research and events? Follow the steps below to make the most of your new membership.


1.  Understand the rules for using and sharing our content

The UHG enterprise currently has open and full access to Advisory Board’s content through The information obtained from the site is intended for UHG’s internal  use only. Content that is not blocked by the paywall is appropriate to share widely; however, content that is otherwise provided only with a paid membership is not to be shared externally with non-Advisory Board members. 

Membership-specific content may be shared, presented, and utilized with Optum and UHC clients provided that 1) Advisory Board staff are involved in delivering, presenting, and sharing the content in appropriate forums and 2) content is branded as Advisory Board and/or attributed/referenced back to Advisory Board.
