Healthcare Consulting

accelerating the journey to risk capability

DHG Healthcare Consulting is not everything, for everyone. Our consulting practice provides only those services that we believe are critical to an organization’s journey toward Risk Capability via broad Solution Sets that fall into two major categories.

Management Consulting

Managing industry participants’ transformational shift to Risk Capability is a provocative, dynamic challenge - in both complexity and importance. Our Management Consulting team assists our clients in answering this challenge via Solutions Sets designed to:

  • Realize transaction value and strategic promise (Circumference)
  • Energize the Physician Enterprise (Achieve)
  • Skillfully navigate and connect Alternative Payment Model programs (ke’nekt)
  • Illuminate a purchaser’s path to a better health plan (iluminus)
  • Cleverly manage and optimize a diverse portfolio of commercial contracts (PS)
  • Power growth through Service Line clarity and optimization (GO)
  • Inform the decision makers of the Senior Living domain (Senior Living)

These are augmented by targeted offerings in the Revenue Cycle, Post-Acute, Technology Optimization, and Analytic domains. Each is intentionally chosen for the key role they play in the journey toward Risk Capability.

Reimbursement & Regulatory Compliance

Our team delivers both targeted offerings to meet specific organizational needs (Bad Debt, Cost Reporting, Disproportionate Share and Wage Index) and the Complete Solution Set.

As organizations advance toward Risk Capability, there are specific steps they can take to enhance their near-term performance while preparing them for the long-term sustainability. Our reimbursement and compliance teams support our clients in this work via the following targeted offerings:

  • Medicare/Medicaid Cost Reporting
  • Medicare Bad Debt
  • Medicare/Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH)
  • Wage Index
  • QVG Record Assessment and Improvement Planning

Beyond these targeted offerings, Complete is a distinctive solution set that delivers our full suite of reimbursement offerings in a comprehensive bundle - uniquely designed for each client situation. The power of this offering is its ability to smartly synchronize the deployment of those reimbursement levers that will drive maximum near-term operational and financial benefit while maintaining long-term alignment with strategic objectives.

Capabilities

Due to the holistic nature of our Solution Sets, and the complexity of the challenges they are meant to address, our engagements typically require the deployment of several specialty capabilities. Embedded within our engagement teams, the deployment of these capabilities is critical to long-term sustainability. These capabilities are meant to assist our Solution Set teams in:

  • Envisioning, developing and applying the analytics that will provide key insights and long-term accountability (Applied Analytics)
  • Applying the perspectives and improvement opportunities that will facilitate alignment with the clinical agenda (Clinical / CDI)
  • Developing the financial modeling tools that will be instrumental in building organizational clarity and courage (Calibrate)
  • Deploying a “Situational Change Approach” design to diagnosis, implement and sustain human performance improvement (People & Change)

Whatever the category, each Solution Set or targeted offering was deliberately chosen given the core business challenges associated with achieving Risk Capability and is continually refreshed to ensure we bring the distinct solutions you would expect from a trusted guide. A guide committed to you for the long term - on your path toward Risk Capability.

Healthcare Industry

The healthcare industry is undergoing a radical transition. From a traditional, well defined fee-for-service economy, to a system where value is defined by outcomes - not inputs. Successfully navigating this shift is challenging and will require courage, confidence, and a guide. The people of DHG Healthcare are here to inform, guide and support our clients so their organizations can realize their long-term potential.
