SAN DIEGO Feb. 16, 2011
The dynamics of health care are undergoing extraordinary change in the face of economic challenges, legislative action, emerging technologies and changing patient demographics and consumer expectations. Health care providers are under increased pressure to improve care while reducing costs. In the orthopaedics market, these pressures are exacerbated by a potential future shortage of trained surgeons available to provide care to a growing patient base seeking treatment for musculoskeletal conditions.
The Practice Advantage program is designed to differentiate a physician’s practice, focusing on boosting market visibility, increasing efficiency and improving financial performance. Partnering with the physician, Accelero develops strategic brand-building programs, incorporating digital, marketing and social media components. Initiatives to maximize efficiency in the operating room and the back office are addressed via strategic operational plans that assess infrastructure, patient outcomes performance and care, margin and volume goals. The Practice Advantage program also includes support in evaluating and implementing potential technology upgrades, including electronic medical records and practice management software.
