Physician Consulting

Physicians and advanced practice providers sit at the heart of all healthcare organizations. At the same time, they, along with hospitals and health systems, find themselves beset by a world of change. From strategic issues around affiliation and market positioning to essential management concerns of governance and leadership, assuring quality and patient satisfaction, and the basic operational challenges of revenue improvement and cost management, it is difficult to see, much less, navigate a clear path towards the future. The Ankura healthcare consulting team can address these issues with you as demonstrated by our solid track record, honed over decades delivering full-spectrum, high-performance, and credible solutions for organizations facing complex market pressures across the country.
