Primary and Specialty Care Strategies

Drive Peak Financial Performance through Primary & Specialty Care Strategies

Delivering cost-effective, high-quality healthcare, while maintaining a positive margin, continues to increase the pressure on rural-based healthcare providers across the country. Coupled with uncertainty around payments, insurance and delivery-system reform, many rural providers struggle to develop and implement long-term strategies that deliver maximum financial performance.

Since a hospital and practice designation type can substantively impact reimbursements received, the alignment and designation of practices is of increasing importance.

To combat this, our team partners with rural & community hospitals and health systems to develop effective primary and specialty care strategies that address the evolving market.

Our Team Assists Rural & Community Hospital Leadership Teams in Answering the Following Questions

What alternative practice designations should we leverage for additional reimbursements and revenue streams?​
If eligible, have we pursued the 340B program?​
Have we evaluated the integration of specialty and primary care into a single rural health clinic?​
Should we consider aligning practices through the system to leverage potential reimbursement advantages? ​

Methodology & Approach

Our team will prepare an overview of the key eligibility requirements, including benefits of participation, for the provider-based rural health clinic program and articulate how each of these requirements impact the practice locations in question.

Next, we will prepare a financial assessment on the inclusion of the listed practices as departments of each of the hospitals with provider-based rural health clinic designation.

Finally, Stroudwater will recommend the most advantageous designation for the listed practices and provide the steps necessary to convert the identified clinics to RHCs.
