Independent Medical Group Strategy for Hospital Affiliation

Medium size primary care group was developing its market-wide strategy for affiliations with hospitals. Because the group maintained offices in a large geographic area, its providers referred to several competing hospitals and systems. The group engaged Health Intersect to participate in its internal strategic planning to assist in analyzing its situation and providing counsel as to its strategic options.

Health Intersect analyzed historical financial, operational and organizational information about the group, as well as its vision and goals for the future. It also gathered and analyzed market information (demographic profiles and trends, business development and related trends) and healthcare provider information (hospitals, physicians/groups, etc).  Health Intersect then helped the group to understand and evaluate its strategic options and the sequencing of how it should pursue and negotiate options.

The group is currently pursuing the strategic path recommended by Health Intersect and the company continues to provide counsel as it manages the process.
