Obtaining A Proposal
When you initially contact rheumRx, you will be asked to provide some background information about your practice and the nature of the particular problems which you would like resolved. Some typical questions you may have include the following:
• I'm now working longer hours and seeing more patients, so why is my income continuing to decline?
• Are my overhead expenses too high? Is my collection ratio too low? How do I bring them more in line with the average rheumatologist? Is it time to invest in electronic medical records?
• In order to increase my patient volume and profitability, should I extend my office hours, offer new services, open a satellite office, increase support staff, hire another physician or physician assistant, and/or market more aggressively?
• Is our group's current physician compensation structure fair? Should we change our compensation structure in view of a new (or departing) partner?
If we believe the services we offer could be of benefit to your practice, we will schedule a "courtesy" follow-up interview in your office (or in some cases, conduct an extended telephone interview) to obtain a more in-depth understanding of the particular management problems/issues which are negatively impacting your practice. This extended interview will provide a better understanding of the history of the problem(s) and issues involved and enable our company to prepare a proposal which addresses your specific areas of need.
Our proposal will discuss the recommended approach for resolving your problems, list the specific services to be provided, include several options for different levels of service (where possible) and provide an estimate of the required consulting time and associated project fee.
The fee for a specific consultation project will depend upon the nature of the particular assignment. Some projects lend themselves to a flat fee for the total project while others are more appropriately priced on an hourly basis. Also, depending on the nature of the project, a fee range may be quoted to provide some level of flexibility for both the client and our company.
