From our blog:

physician patient relationship

Several years ago, a colleague and I were presenting market research to a large audience of employed physicians and administrators. A few minutes into the presentation, a physician in the middle of the hotel ballroom raised his hand and said, rather adamantly, “Don’t call my patients customers! They are not customers, they are patients!”

His comment provided a wonderful opportunity to discuss the importance of customers and what that term means in a practice setting.

So, who really is our customer?

What others say about us

“Hands down, this is the best consulting group I have worked with throughout my entire career. Their collective expertise and reliability is second to none, and their deliverables exceeded my expectations. Partnering with the Halley Group has helped to propel our network in ways that had not been possible in the past. This is particularly true as it relates to standardizing processes and expectations as well as developing provider governance to help guide our network. Further, even after the scope of the work had been completed, I was still able to reach out to the Halley Group, at no additional expense, to get consultation or seek clarification. If your network is in need of transformation and change, the Halley Group is your partner; you will not regret this investment.”

“The Halley consultants assigned to do your site analysis are extremely knowledgeable.  They have the ability to communicate effectively with physicians, CEOs, clinic management as well as staff.  I really appreciated the time they took evaluating each clinic and submitting recommendations to improve revenue, staffing and overall workflow.  The governance structure they recommended has created a system of timely communication and accountability from the practice location up through the network operations.  Halley Consulting exceeded our expectations.”

“Adventist Health System has utilized Halley Consulting significantly for both interim management and governance model development. In both cases the professionalism and work of the Halley team has been exceptional!”

“I am very pleased with the end result of our work with Halley Consulting. Their team armed us with all of the tools and models we needed to move forward from A to Z with our employed and affiliated medical practice network. I would highly recommend them to other hospitals and health systems that are searching to develop strategies or to improve the operational performance of their ambulatory sites.”

“I used one of the ‘big three’ consulting firms and paid too much for a cookie-cutter report that I couldn’t use. Halley Consulting refined that data, added their insight, and created a real deliverable with solid strategic and operational impact.”

“The ROI from the Halley Consulting interim manager was high: their executive quickly defined the action steps to improve our practices, then began to implement those enhancements, negotiated physician contracts and even brought additional tools including their compensation model. They also helped transition our newly hired Network Executive into the role so that no momentum was lost.”
