Uncovering Opportunity and Managing Risk

The healthcare industry is going through enormous changes. Consolidation among providers, a changing reimbursement landscape, evolving relationships between providers, payers and employers and an ever-increasing demand for improved technology (both information and clinical) are just a few of the challenges facing healthcare executives.

Our firm has positioned itself as a thought leader and subject matter expert in matters regarding healthcare regulatory and reimbursement issues that are impacting providers across the nation. Valued-added services, such as revenue cycle assessments, Medicare Disproportionate Share analysis, and ICD-10 preparedness have allowed us to establish an ever-growing presence in both the local and national healthcare marketplace.

Our healthcare team has continued to evolve to help our clients navigate through these issues. We have assisted clients as they face consolidation issues, have been their technology advisor, have improved their reimbursement through Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH), Medicare Dependent Hospital (MDH) and revenue cycle management, and have provided the strategic thought processes to help their Boards develop plans for future success. Our healthcare team consists of audit, tax and consulting professionals, and exists both to serve our clients more efficiently as well as to continue to strengthen our industry knowledge. Through our healthcare team, we are able to bring solutions learned from our broad consulting practice to our audit and tax clients.
