Rock Rockett, PhD, has many years of experience as a Blue Cross executive, a surgery center management executive, a healthcare accreditation executive and as leader of his team of experts in developing successful independent physican practices.
We've assisted groups in starting up endoscopy centers and endovascular centers. We've assisted solo physicians in developing office endoscopy capabilities and helped to make these practices more successful.
We've negotiated deals with payers to provide higher fees for office endoscopy procedures. We identify other sources of revenue and introduce those to our GI physician partners. And we've led physician groups in merging with other practices to form a mega group.
All of our strategic initiatives help physicians to either collect more for what they're already doing or collect new revenue from new ventures, such as pathology labs, infusion, office endoscopy, clinical trials, and more.
We partner with independent physicians and physician groups to provide expert consulting to increase revenues in order to sustain their independence. Independent practices are good for doctors, good for patients and good for payers.
➢ GI practices moving to office endoscopy. Why?
o Medicare & commercial payers pay more for GI procedures in office settings
o No Certificate of Need required!
o BCBS plans pay incentives in highly regulated states
o No huge investment required as with ASC’s
➢ Obtain revenue from pathology lab services
o Professional Component fees payable to GI’s
o Partner with a path lab to gain Technical Component fees
o Set up your own lab if your volume is sufficient
➢ Earn a share of anesthesia revenue
o Mobile anesthesia groups cover PACU expenses – including RN salaries
o You earn revenue by setting up your own anesthesia practice
o You can hire CRNA’s and bill for anesthesia services
➢ Provide added services for patients in your office
o Clinical trials research – vendor provides Research Associates
o Dysphagia diagnosis & therapy services you bill and collect for
o Infusion services that you bill and collect for
➢ Colon prep kits also provide added revenue
o You provide the prep kits as a convenience to your patients
o It’s add-on income in addition to your professional fees
We’ve achieved success on behalf of many GI groups and we can help you too!
