To stabilize and align your physician investment, we focus on five key areas that must be optimized to have a successful group practice:
The organization is physician led and professionally managed. Patient care quality and overall accountability are supported by a common vision, shared goals, and effective management team.
Remove barriers and inefficiencies to maximize the time providers can spend with their patients. Work flows eliminate waste and smooth demand to increase access to care.
Financial tools are structured to measure cost and quality to support standard financial metrics. There are transparent and consistent data focused for physicians to ensure accountability and clear expectations.
A mutually beneficial environment for providers and healthcare delivery systems exists by managing patient retention, developing strategic partnerships, aligning contracts and compensation with strategic goals, and understanding the alignment of providers in the market.
Healthier populations, lower costs of care and informed quality management are possible with coordinated management of the continuum of care with primary and specialty team based care models, alignment of hospital-based physician services, and a focus on clinical service coordination.
