ECG Management Consultants, Inc. Improves Physician Group and Ambulatory Care Network Performance to Thrive in a Value-Based Environment

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - July 15, 2014) - ECG Management Consultants, Inc. announces a comprehensive package of services designed to help physician groups and ambulatory care networks improve performance and transition to a value-based environment. As hospitals and health systems continue to build larger group practice organizations, investments per physician are becoming unsustainable. ECG, a national management consulting firm working exclusively with healthcare providers, is helping to turn around underperforming physician organizations.

"Much like a physician would diagnose and treat a patient, our team of experts can diagnose and treat what's hindering physician group performance," states Michelle Holmes, a co-leader of ECG's Performance Improvement Practice. "Whether it's improving physician compensation and production, revenue cycle and contract management, or practice EHR platforms, our team has the expertise to ensure clients are able to deliver quality care in an efficient setting."

Delivering high-quality care that is efficient and cost-effective is a pressing topic due to healthcare reform and changing reimbursement structures. Physician groups must also develop, implement, and sustain population health management strategies. 

"We've been working with physicians for decades, and we understand how crucial it is to enhance governance, management, and operational performance of groups to better position for success," explains Jessica Turgon, who leads the Performance Improvement Practice alongside Holmes. Both are principals with ECG and have directed the firm's effort to advance its service offering to better meet the needs of physician groups and ambulatory care networks. 

ECG's Performance Improvement Practice now offers a set of services specifically designed to transform underperforming medical groups, including performance assessments, improvement planning, and implementation and optimization services. All are described in more detail on the new practice website launched this week. For more information, visit perform.ecgmc.com.
