Financial sustainability

It is more important than ever to take a more proactive approach to improving and maintaining the financial health and outlook of your organization.  Our team helps organizations identify pain points within their organization and implement initiatives that help reduce costs and improve reimbursement and revenue streams.

Reimbursement strategies

Reimbursement rules and regulations are continuously changing, making reimbursement opportunities even more difficult to identify and claim. Our team of reimbursement specialists can help companies of all sizes compile, prepare and review their annual cost reports. In addition to helping properly submit these reports, we also take a strategic perspective and help providers understand new/updated regulations, waivers, exemptions, and opportunities that will increase their reimbursements.

Revenue cycle optimization

Healthcare leaders need to be able to identify opportunities for improving the financial performance of their organization.  Our team uses innovative analytics to evaluate your organization’s baseline performance, identify gaps in current operations and processes, and develop a plan to improve and transform your revenue cycle operations.

Value-based contracting and program development

Organizations are facing lasting challenges as the industry continues to transition from a fee-for-service (FFS) model of care to value-based care (VBC) arrangements.  We are able to help providers better understand VBC arrangements by conducting analysis and identifying gaps and determining VBC readiness. In addition to conducting VBC readiness assessments, our team helps healthcare providers design their VBC programs, implement new and enhanced current programs, and monitor programs after implementation to make sure hospitals stay on track optimizing their VBC arrangements.

Managed care and physician contracting

We help organizations understand market trends, perform pricing benchmarks, negotiate reimbursement rates, forecast revenue, and develop managed care agreement language within contracts.
