"The team at Halley Consulting not only gave us detailed quarterly action plans guiding the operational improvements of our medical practice networks, they rolled up their sleeves and helped us implement these enhancements.  I highly recommend their expertise to any hospital or health system trying to identify potential opportunities for operational, financial, and strategic gains within their practice networks."   James Lyons

Is your network one step forward and two steps back?

The Halley Consulting Group Network Evaluation provides a road map for a physician practice network to reduce losses, achieve significant operational improvements and ultimately strengthen market share.  This evaluation provides an external review of the strengths and weaknesses of a practice network as measured against various operating and financial benchmarks for successful practices including: 

  • Operational Governance

  • Management

  • Marketing

  • Human Resources

  • Operations (Including A/R Management)

  • Management Information Systems

  • Accounting

  • Physical Facilities & Equipment

  • Financial Performance

  • Network Development (Including Physician Recruitment)

Importantly, the evaluation also provides clients with a roadmap for closing any gaps in operational or financial performance. 

The Network Evaluation process consists of the following steps:

  • Initial site visit to introduce the Network Evaluation Questionnaire, a 105-question tool designed to identify the issues facing your network

  • Operational face-to-face interviews with a representative sample of physicians, mid-level providers and site managers

  • Interviews with recruiters or team members responsible for developing your medical staff development plan

  • Interviews with medical practice billing team members

As part of our evaluation process we gather financial and statistical information from those responsible for servicing the practices and the network.  We conduct our GAP Analysis, which helps identify network strengths and weaknesses, as well as the root causes of financial performance challenges.  If the data is available, we conduct this analysis at the individual clinic site level as well as for the network as a whole.

The deliverable is a written document including observations and recommendations by functional category, as well as the tools and models that apply to the recommendations.  Importantly, the write-up includes our quarterly implementation action plan recommendations.  We present these findings to various stakeholders within your system.
