2019 Bi-Annual Report

The healthcare landscape has become increasingly complex with the need to involve physicians in most every strategic decision, as value-based care becomes the way of the future. Meanwhile, the surge of private equity transactions into the healthcare space has been enormous. To add to the mix, the highly regulated nature of the industry creates unique barriers to new alignment models. Balancing these factors in order to drive a successful physician alignment strategy is no easy task.

As a result, VMG Health has extensive insight into the industry and critical success factors associated with physician alignment. Understanding how to drive higher reimbursement in the new environment, along with navigating healthcare regulations is required for healthcare executives to be successful in today’s environment.

It can be challenging to tie all these groups together to effectively achieve physician alignment goals.
