With the passage of the Affordable Care Act and a host of market changes, the challenges physicians and medical groups now face are tremendous. New payment models are emerging, public reporting of quality measures and costs is on the rise, retail clinics and other new providers offer new competition, and EMRs and mobile health are fast becoming “table stakes.” As providers consolidate, find strength in size, and work to redesign care delivery, is your physician organization poised to succeed in a value-based world?
For more than 40 years, we have worked with medical groups, independent practice associations (IPAs), and other physician organizations to tackle the strategic, operational, and financial challenges they face. This includes improving organizational effectiveness and efficiency, developing and restructuring medical groups and clinics, as well as compensation plan redesign. We also have extensive experience with the development and implementation of various forms of physician-hospital integration, including MSOs, clinical integration, ACOs, joint ventures, direct employment, faculty practice plans, medical foundations, and other arrangements.
We have hands-on medical group operations experience, and as industry thought leaders, and we frequently speak and write on medical group performance improvement for organizations such as AMGA and MGMA. We also authored the book Medical Group Management: Strategies for Enhancing Performance. With our deep knowledge of the challenges unique to physicians and our collaborative, client-focused approach, we can provide the insight and practical solutions to help guide your transition to value-based care.
