Ascendient works with independent physicians, affiliated physicians, small single specialty groups, and large multi-specialty group practices, including those who already lead their own Accountable Care Organization (ACO), and those who are considering developing or joining one.
Ascendient helps physicians and medical practice managers understand the extent to which their success and viability currently relies on patient and procedural volume. And we’ll show what they will need to do to prepare and reposition for a future healthcare landscape in which volume alone will no longer guarantee reimbursement.
We help group practices understand their competitive position within the market and conduct the appropriate business planning. Additionally, our medical staff planning model helps evaluate physician productivity to assist with recruitment planning, provider planning, affiliation opportunities, and strategic planning.
