Practice Startup

Reduce Stress and Achieve Early Profits for Your Medical Practice Startup

Your Startup Strategy Will Impact Profits for Years to Come

Knowing and overseeing the thousands of details required for a successful medical practice startup is not the only key to success. The key is to achieve the tasks in the proper sequence and to know which tasks are prerequisites for others. This helps keep your startup on schedule, avoids costly delays, and prevents you from delaying important decisions that impact profits.

The Real Cost of a DIY Practice Startup

It is really easy to become tempted by the idea of saving a few dollars with a do-it-yourself practice startup. It can be done, however, this often costs physicians tens of thousands of dollars in missed revenue over the first few years of their practice. For example:

  • If you do not get credentialed with the right carriers, it can cause you to miss two additional new patients per day for the first three months, which translates to $300 per day, or up to $6,000 per month of missed revenue.
  • With the right marketing plan, you might bring in three more patients per day for the first two or three years. Without it, you could cost yourself tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

These examples are the price of relying on a standard practice startup checklist. Even the most comprehensive list can’t convey the timing and order in which certain tasks must occur, nor can it convey the value that comes with the experience of having set up medical practices for physicians in just about every specialty.

A Proven System for Success

Our team at Zagreb Global Group has refined the process to help ensure a successful practice startup. We can help you in any stage of your startup, including:

  1. Conduct a feasibility study
  2. Determine parameters for facility size and location
  3. Evaluate and establish your site location
  4. Identify practice and financial objectives
  5. Assistance with securing financing
  6. Obtain credentialing and contracting
  7. Establish operations, compliance and HR procedures
  8. Assistance with your marketing plan and patient loyalty development

From Feasibility to Ribbon Cutting…

You can choose the level of service that provides what you need wherever you are in the process. Our medical practice startup professionals know what needs to be done and how to do it effectively and efficiently. We can even work with you after the initial medical practice startup to help keep you moving into higher levels of professional success.

Office Based Surgery Startup

Gain Control Over Your Schedule And Increase Surgery Revenue

The single largest regret our clients have once their office-based surgery (OBS) center is up and running is that they didn’t startup sooner!

For physicians seeking ways to offset declining revenues with services that enhance the patient experience, office-based surgery services are an ideal solution. With improvements in equipment, technology and techniques, physicians can now perform complex surgical invasive procedures in their own office-based suite while maintaining the highest standards of patient safety.

As a full-service consulting firm that employs experienced healthcare professionals, we have developed a system for surgical center success that avoids wasted time and missed revenue. From the scope of services and level of physician involvement to licensure and staffing needs, we reduce the time to build and start up an efficient, scalable infrastructure to support your immediate and long-term goals.

Whether you are just getting started or interested in taking your existing center to new levels of efficiency, compliance and profitability, our team can help. We manage every aspect of setup including the development of surgical service line offerings based on patient demographics. We provide support for navigating state guidelines, protocols and procedures for consent, compliance management, policy manuals, infection and safety controls, and emergency management. You also receive customized risk management and compliance manuals, employee manuals, staff training, marketing recommendations and guidance, as well as the option for ongoing management services to promote continued growth.

Start Your Own ASC

Start Your Own ASC

Market Conditions are Right

In today’s rapidly changing healthcare environment, patients recognize that they have choices when it comes to their medical care. They are looking for high-quality physicians, state-of-the-art equipment, positive outcomes and convenient care – all at affordable prices. These market drivers have resulted in an increase in both the number of ambulatory surgery centers and surgical hospitals that are opening up across the United States. In fact, our research has uncovered the following:

  • 170+ new ASCs are opening up each year.
  • 60% of hospitals have an ASC within walking distance.
  • Most physicians who staff ASCs are former hospital employees seeking equity in the service they provide – especially those who provide services with specialties that have a greater access to reimbursement now versus prior years.
  • The “hospital experience” is becoming a less desirable option for patients who have a choice.

Our Typical De Novo ASC Opportunity

The Partners Surgical Difference

Our turn-key approach allows you to focus on what you do best – providing the highest level of patient care available.

Whether you are an individual physician, part of a group of physicians, or interested in starting an ASC in conjunction with a hospital, Zagreb Global Group can structure the right ASC for you

ASC Operational Services

Operational Support

The ASC market is an exciting and growing sector in healthcare. Patients are demanding a choice – and the ASC model delivers the convenience, quality and positive outcomes they expect.

However, simply leasing an office and filling it with medical equipment and staff is not a sound model for success. In order to succeed in the ASC arena, or any medical sector for that matter, it takes a high level of healthcare experience and fundamental commitment to excellence across the board.

In order to continue to deliver quality patient care for the long-term, maintaining the financial health of the ASC is critical.

Profitability, Security and Strength

While our Consulting team is loaded with heavy hitters in the healthcare arena, our bench is just as deep when it comes to financial planning, management and support.

ASC Clinical Services

Clinical Excellence

The demand for high-quality ambulatory surgery centers is on the rise. In fact, over the last three years, the ASC market has experienced a healthy year-over-year growth.

Patients are receiving better care than they would at a traditional hospital setting – with more convenience and at a lower cost. The market is strong for experienced groups who understand the complexities and nuances involved in building and managing quality ASCs that serve local communities. The Partners Surgical clinical team brings decades of top-notch, hands-on experience to every de novo, existing and hospital joint venture ASC partner.

More Convenience, Better Outcomes

While surgeries have been performed in a hospital setting for nearly a century, the ASC model optimizes high-acuity surgeries with a fit-for-purpose and systematic approach.

Built and operated in the communities in which patients live and work, these ASCs offer unmatched convenience and comfort to improve a patient’s overall experience.

We develop customized centers with the exact physicians and services the patients need – but without the intimidating and overwhelming feel of the hospital experience.

We take a comprehensive approach to fulfilling all of your human resources needs, allowing you to focus on what you do best – treating patients.

While you will have input in the process of hiring, training and rewarding your top people, PSC will take ownership of the process so you can be involved as much, or as little, as you prefer.
