For too long, healthcare leaders have treated the physician enterprise as a politically complex and financially reliant adjunct to the health system, rather than as core to the system’s ability to achieve broader strategic objectives. Proactively cultivating your physician enterprise as an essential asset to your organization can help you not only fulfill your mission but also achieve strategic and operational goals.
We understand the synergistic relationships between physician entities and the broader health system, the complex financial relationships, and the competing priorities you need to reconcile. Our multi-faceted approach seamlessly integrates performance improvement, clinical optimization, strategic growth, and technology enablement—to provide a holistic, 360-degree view of the changes required for you to effectively grow revenue, reduce expenses, improve outcomes, operate efficiently and effectively, and bend your cost curve.
