PMM consultants are called upon to advise on a wide variety of needs related to the "business" side of the practice of health care.
Client practices range from solo practice start-ups and practice surveys to larger group practice needs.
PMM specializes in out-patient professional practices, typically with 10 physicians or less, and has received a high degree of professional recognition.
Most clients seeking profitability-improvement net at least a 300% return on their investment within the first year with a Practice Survey & Improvement Plan.
PMM consultants also offer seminars, act as expert witnesses in court cases on practice valuation issues, contribute to many medical business journals including Medical Economics and AMA News, and authored PMIC/McGraw-Hill's Medical Practice Forms Book and Medical Practice Pre-Employment Tests Book, setting national standards in those topics.
PMM consultants have been on faculty & boards of directors of medical businesses and medical professional associations.
PMM has served over 500 medical and related healthcare practices over the past 25+ years
AMA ConsultingLink®, part of the American Medical Association, carefully screened and chose the top healthcare consultants in the country -- advisors who have what it takes to help your practice thrive in today's constantly changing healthcare environment. They did their homework to make your selection process hassle-free. We are proud to have been a member of the AMA ConsultingLink® network from 1993 until closure of the program in 2005.
To be included in the American Academy of Family Physicians' Network of Consultants (FP-Assist®), consultants were required to undergo an extensive application and peer review process. Consultant credentials -- education, training and experience -- were carefully evaluated. That ensured that they are qualified to provide you with the services you request, and, most importantly, understand the unique needs of family physicians. We are pleased to have been among the few firms in the nation accepted by AAFP's FP-Assist® for family practice consulting, appraisal and brokerage. PMM was an original Founding Member and participant and on faculty until the cessation of the program in 2010.
Medical Economics Editorial Consultants are the experts in medical practice that you see listed in the front of each issue. Long before a consultant is invited to join ME's consultant panel, they've established solid working relationships with ME's editors. Editors call upon them when researching articles; send them pre-publication copies of articles for their review, inviting comments and corrections to make sure ME has gotten the facts straight; and publish articles by the consultants. ME also sponsored out talks at practice management conventions. ME is confident that we know our stuff.
