The relationship between hospitals, specialty physicians and primary care providers is a sometimes challenging, always rewarding arena for those who successfully navigate its complexity. Halley Consulting Group specializes in building successful medical practices and physician/hospital partnerships, regardless of the level of economic integration. All of our consulting and management services are provided within the context of integrated delivery, recognizing that services must be coordinated in order to deliver the highest quality medical care. We believe that the source of truly sustainable competitive advantage and long-term viability for medical practices and hospitals lies in a cooperative effort to meet their patient/customer needs, wants and priorities better than competing medical services delivery networks. We are committed to helping our clients achieve this advantage through a variety of consulting and interim management services.
What sets us apart is our ability to implement our strategies within a system, whether we are facilitating a physician network performance turnaround, providing an interim executive, or initiating a short-term consulting engagement.
