We start with several in-depth conversations with you and those important in your life as the foundation of our partnership. Specifically, we look at:
What’s your longevity in the community? Do you have name recognition? Do you have a strong connection to your patients? Are they loyal to you?
What are the demographics of your current patients? What are the market demographics in your area? What’s the age distribution of your panel? And what’s the payer mix?
What is your current patient panel size? What’s the status of your income/cash flow? What can we learn from the competitive landscape? How competitive is the market?
The process of the evaluation varies from physician to physician, but typically includes these critical STEPS:
- Initial Call
- Practice Survey
- Preliminary Assessment
- Analyze Patient and Financial Data
- Practice Visit
- Patient Survey
- Internal Committee
- Deliver Proposal
- Begin Transition Phase
