Alex Gorecki, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development, Clinical Colleagues, Inc.
Let’s assume your hospital has concluded that it makes most sense to outsource your anesthesia practice management services. You invest a lot of time and effort, going through a rigorous research and screening process, interviewing potential partners and collaborating with your team, to ultimately reach a decision about who to partner with. And then just when you think you can take a breath and shift your focus to another pressing priority … BAM!! The company you chose to partner with is bought buy a larger practice management company in the market. Perhaps the larger company was one that you initially considered, and determined was not the right fit for your hospital. Or all of the reasons that the smaller company was initially attractive to you, are now null and void. The processes and deliverables are different, with the larger company now at the helm.
Think this wouldn’t happen? Think again. What is described above is just a hypothetical scenario, but in fact, this exact scenario happens quite frequently in healthcare.
The painful reality is that when consolidation does occur, clients can end up with exactly what they didn’t want. In some cases, the big company that buys out the little guy doesn’t have the capacity to work with smaller clients that are less profitable. The hospital leader who thought his or her anesthesia service line was “good to go” suddenly gets a contract cancellation notice, and is then left scrambling, trying to put new resources in place quickly without compromising patient care, in the interim.
Want to avoid finding yourself in this challenging situation? You can.
Choose Clinical Colleagues, Inc. (CCI) as your anesthesia practice management partner. Our company is small by design, with “working owners” who are hands on and have zero intention of ever consolidating with a larger practice management company. As a company, we are growing, but we are doing so in a way that is intentionally slow and steady. In fact, we even limit the number of clients we will partner with at any given time, so that we can absolutely assure that we are delivering top-notch, personalized and attentive service, to each hospital we are working with. We don’t believe one size fits all. Instead, we believe that through a customized approach and strategically planned practice management model, suited for YOUR hospital, your anesthesia service line can be transformed into one that is efficient, affordable and productive.
You may have heard that Clinical Colleagues maintains a client retention rate of 100 percent. Perhaps now you understand why.
