Leaders of physician groups are keenly aware of the complexities
of maintaining control over their practices and guiding them into
a future rife with internal and external pressures. The challenges
include the need to be increasingly responsive to “consumerism” in
terms of access and service; assuring cost effective clinical results
to compete for “value based reimbursement”; and learning how to manage
larger clinical enterprises while improving market position.
The JHD Group was founded in 1998 and is a leader in assisting physician
organizations to meet the challenges of care delivery, patient services,
managed care, technology integration, market development and profit/income
improvement. We have been instrumental in helping some of the country’s
largest physician organizations meet current challenges head-on,
with a perspective on the future. We attribute our success on behalf
of clients to several factors including:
We seek to work with clients who can "see
over the wall", have greater aspirations for profitability,
desire to have greater impact on their markets, and will work
with us in sense of partnership.
We believe in a practice development model which
prioritizes operational excellence as the starting point, then
developing market position to be followed by knowledge leadership
around clinical practice and disease management.
We emphasize goals and objectives with tangible results,
and manage our assignments to achieve results quickly.
We bring experienced professional talent to our client assignments,
and manage integrated teams with a breadth of skills.
The JHD Group has assembled some of the healthcare industry’s
most seasoned, experienced and successful physician organization
