We love getting our hands dirty.
EXPERTISE AND GUIDANCE FOR TODAY’S HEALTHCARE CHALLENGES.
We’re not just healthcare consultants, and we’re not just IT people. We provide the expertise you’d expect from the nation’s leading consulting firms, and the experience to get the job done. What makes us unique isn’t just our ability to provide comprehensive solutions—it’s our readiness to roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty by applying high-level guidance to the specifics of your practice, at an affordable cost.
Patient-Centered Medical Home
Becoming a NCQA-recognized Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) or Patient-Centered Specialty Practice (PCSP) can be overwhelming. Our team is here to help! Our proven roadmap to success breaks the journey to become a medical home into manageable pieces and brings clarity to the process, while our practice-coaching model gives clinicians and leadership the resources and confidence they need to achieve recognition as a Level 3 medical home.
Building a successful organization doesn’t just require making changes—it also requires sustaining them. Our practice transformation experts use data to help identify opportunities for improvement. Then we’ll coach you through the process step by step to create performance improvement that lasts.
The advent of new care delivery models means managing the health of your patients has never been more important, or more complex. We can work with you to assess your patient population and develop targeted interventions to improve your patients’ health, whether they are in your office or at home.
Informatics & Technology
Often clients just need an outside assessment of their current IT infrastructure. Our team of Application Specialists is experienced with interface design, network engineering and hardware management, and can help ensure your existing capabilities meet your business and clinical objectives, and work with you to develop a long-term IT governance strategy.
Working in today’s healthcare environment demands increased levels of coordination, communication and collaboration in the delivery of care. From EHRs and Practice Management software to Health Information Exchange platforms, our team will work with you build a comprehensively integrated clinical information system.
Revenue Cycle Consulting
With the transition from traditional fee-for-service reimbursement models to value-based payment initiatives, receiving appropriate payment for care rendered is no easy task. Our consultants have the billing, coding and accounts-receivable management experience to improve collections and maintain your organization’s profitability.
Making data actionable for day-to-day operations and strategic decision support can be a challenge for any healthcare organization. Path Forward’s Analytics Team can help you build the right capabilities to mine data and create value with real operational insights.
Strategic and Economic Planning
To achieve the results you expect, your IT function needs to be driven by your business and clinical objectives. We work with you to validate your objectives, match appropriate IT solutions, and create a plan for action.
Navigating the Quality Payment Program can be overwhelming. Our team is here to help! Our proven roadmap to success breaks MIPS and Alternate Payment Model program requirements into manageable pieces and brings clarity to the process, while our practice-coaching model gives clinicians and leadership the resources and confidence they need to successfully participate.
Compliance & Security
In this day and age, compliance with HIPAA Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules should be part of what you do every day — not something reviewed once a year. Compliance with HIPAA can feel like a burden, but our team of HIPAA experts are experienced with providing a practical approach to HIPAA policy and procedures development/implementation, education and training programs, disaster recovery planning, serving as your virtual privacy and/or security officer, cyber risk management, and audit/assessment remediation assistance. We understand how overwhelming compliance with HIPAA regulations can be so our team is ready to effectively assist your organization with achieving compliance with the HIPAA requirements.
Governance and Operations
Healthy governance is critical to obtaining proper results and returns on Information Technology. We can help define the decisions that need to be made to craft a governance program that’s streamlined and effective.
Own your EMR, don’t let it own you. We can help build our best practices into your workflow, eliminating bottlenecks and user-unfriendliness. There is an optimal configuration for every organization’s needs. Let Path Forward help you achieve it.
