For more than 50 years, we’ve helped rural communities improve their finances, prepare cost reports, enhance physician alignment and navigate a strategic path to a more stable, sustainable future. We were among the first to help communities convert their hospitals to critical access status. And we’ve stayed with them, developing unparalleled expertise along the way.

But it does not stop there; we believe rural health systems today are a key economic driver in their communities and the center of health care reform in their community. To help, we have created a free online toolkit to assist rural hospitals with their own health insurance decisions and how to educate their community on the impact the affordable care act will have on local business.

 

Why we are different…

The best thing rural hospitals offer their patients and community…

Your hospital is critical to the well-being of the community. As we move forward into a new health care landscape, now is the time to envision the possibilities, plan strategically and take action to ensure that your hospital remains a vital resource for the people who count on it.

 

How we can help…

  • Revenue Enhancement
    Your hospital is critical to the well-being of the community. As we move forward into a new health care landscape, now is the time to envision the possibilities, plan strategically and take action to ensure that your hospital remains a vital resource for the people who count on it. Most patients rate their billing experience equal to or more important than quality of medical care they receive. We work with you to improve patient experiences and identify where you can capture more revenue, stop leakages and streamline your process to ensure you are paid the maximum return for services provided.

  • Financing Strategies
    As you start down the path to turn your strategic goals into reality you will need assurance that your financial future will sustain your objectives. Our strong relationships with lenders and financial advisors, coupled with the skill of our health care financing team, will help you navigate the process towards financing success.

  • Operational Process Improvement
    Doing more with less is a constant struggle. By examining your current operational processes, we find ways to improve efficiencies so you accomplish more with less, without undue strain on staff or budget.

  • Technology Solutions
    Our technology solutions align people, processes and technology to enhance operational performance and reduce costs. Services include data analytics and reporting, accounting solutions (ERP), IT infrastructure and networking optimization, IT planning and assessments, HIPAA/HITECH privacy and security compliance.

  • Reimbursement Strategies
    Together, we develop a deeper understanding of your organization and how your current structure and processes impact reimbursement. Then, we explore opportunities to enhance reimbursement while focusing on the delivery of health care services.

  • Organizational Consulting
    We help you define strategic goals, map out actionable plans and work with you to achieve those goals over time. From physician alignment to strategic planning and staffing, to restructuring, mergers and health care reform, our consultants work with you to navigate pressing challenges and embrace opportunities.

  • Tax Filing & Consulting
    Beyond filing taxes, we consult on a variety of issues that may affect your hospital:unrelated business income, Community Health Needs Assessments reporting, tax exempt status and filing, policies and procedures reviews and organizational structuring. We help you not only stay in compliance with tax laws, but protect your tax exempt status.

  • Audit Services
    As a staple of our health care services, our audit teams work with you and your board to provide independent review of your financial reports. Our team interacts with your organization throughout the year to address issues as they arise and to consult with you when reporting requirements are changing.
