Medical Staff Planning for an Academic Medical Center


An East Coast academic medical center located in a densely populated metropolitan market


To develop a medical staff plan that would grow loyal primary care practices and close specialty departments with an over-supply of physicians to new appointments.


Veralon compiled and analyzed an inventory of over 3000 community-based physicians during the study.


Our recommendations led the hospital to initiate an aggressive program to redirect primary care referrals and to recruit and seed new practitioners into the service area. The client is also considering need-based economic credentialing requirements for selected specialty departments.
