Strength In Unity
At a time when Medicare payment rates are dropping, fee negotiations with private health plans are painful, and hospitals are seeking ways to reduce stipends to their anesthesiology groups, the independent anesthesia group could use a helping hand.
ABC’s new program, ZenithAnesthesia Practice Network, will seek to consolidate the strength, the knowledge and skills, and the experience of our clients, our staff, and our consultants, with a view toward making those anesthesiology practices that partner with us more than competitive.
Zenith’s three major goals are to:
- Use economies of scale to negotiate favorable agreements for health insurance, malpractice insurance, legal and tax advice, retirement plan administration, HR functions, and more.
- Develop a common and interoperable format for clinical quality and OR efficiency data collection, enabling clients to benchmark their practices both longitudinally and horizontally, without duplicative reporting.
- Foster accountability – individual and shared – helping participating groups to stand out and offer hospitals, health systems, health plans, and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) the excellence these entities are seeking.
We believe that together we can capitalize on the strength of a united network, while you maintain your legal independence and identity, with your active support and contributions to the fund of knowledge and its deployment.
