Long Term program viability
So many hospitals are taken totally by surprise when the supporting nephrologists open their own competing program, and the hospital programs are decimated. The long-term relationship with supporting nephrologists continues to be a recurring theme with our hospital clients. HDS has proven experience with helping hospitals identify the strategic options available in each specific market situation. Once the best option is identified, HDS can assist in the development of a work plan that supports the program’s long-term viability while taking into account the importance of fostering a positive relationship with the nephrology group. HDS can also assist you in defining business strategies and/or creating a business plan for a proposed joint venture entity.
