HSG to Lead Webinar for the American College of Healthcare Executives on Utilizing On-Site Interim Project Managers to Keep Strategic Focus

HSG, a national healthcare consulting firm, will lead a continuing education webinar for the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) on “Filling Gaps in Physician Network Practice Management.” The program, scheduled for Tuesday, July 19, at 11 a.m. Central time, was developed to address the situation many hospitals and healthcare organizations are facing after the pandemic created a drain on middle management in many markets. Registration for this webinar is open to both members and non-members at ACHE.org. 

Leading the discussion on how hospitals and health systems can address voids in practice management is HSG Advisors Director Davis Creech. He is joined by Bryan Fredericks, Healthcare Executive, Physician Networks and System Operations, and Ron Peterson, FACHE, President/CEO, Baxter Regional Medical Center. The three will discuss how healthcare system leaders’ staffing needs vary in this environment. They will also share their experiences on effectively using on-site interim project managers to keep strategic focus in such a challenging healthcare environment. 

“The healthcare industry currently lacks a robust pool of talented and experienced managers that can lead and implement strategic projects,” said Creech. “This missing leadership is slowing progress in physician networks, which can create revenue cycle issues and major losses for hospitals and healthcare systems. Leadership must examine alternative ways to keep pace and remain financially viable. Often, experienced interim support is the best option,” he added.  

ACHE’s continuing education webinar will address issues that can be managed by interim help. Because of the significant number of private practices acquired during the pandemic, transitioning a practice is often an area of need.  Other issues include training office and network staff to increase production and throughput, implementing provider-based billing, enhancing and stabilizing service line offerings, and building data management infrastructure to bolster management strategic decision-making.

HSG partners with hospitals and healthcare systems to discover the root cause of issues and create plans to solve the problem.  From implementing provider-based billing evaluation and training to payor credentialing and onboarding of newly acquired private practices, HSG’s veteran onsite project management team can be an interim answer to completing organizational projects and developing solutions to systemic problems.
