While we are highly specialized within women's and children's services, we are also broad. We start from a strategic knowledge of what is going on in health care in general—the context in which women’s and children’s services must perform to be successful.
Then, we also have extensive experience in every function that it takes to crease successful services, from clinical quality initiatives to finance, contemporary nursing leadership, clinical program design, facility design, certificate of need (yes, Virginia, some states still have that), common legal issues (speaking of physician alignment), and many other issues related to successful business and clinical business development in women's and children's services.
Most importantly, we connect those issues; we don't treat them as unconnected, simplistic concerns. We know why and when population health will demand certain clinical initiatives and where to look for decreased costs through increased quality right now--as well as when you need to be positioned for bundled payment in these specialties.
And while we know where to push and pull, perhaps even more importantly, we know all the variables and pressures that impact when and how you should push or pull. We like win-win.

Underneath the business necessities...
When physician alignment comes up, some make the mistake of thinking that OB-Gyns and pediatricians are primarily economically motivated. Finance always matters, especially these days of slashed reimbursement and long hours. But there are easier specialties than these two if dollars are the key motivator.
Of all the specialties, we find that these two have to hear how what they are doing will improve care for their patients as well.
We see it every day, and we still very much believe in the commitment of physicians, nurses and other clinicians to the health of women and children. Working from that belief, they and we are able to work together to achieve their--and your--best for the families we all serve.
We are as involved in all forms of physician alignment and contracting as anyone else--collaboratives, PMAs, CMAs, employment and everything in between. We just don't forget the other major motivators for these specialties: how it will help women and families, as well as the providers themselves and their practices over the long term.
