BMI is a business consulting firm that specializes in working with surgeons and hospitals who have programs dedicated to weight loss surgery. The main types of surgery are adjustable gastric banding, gastric bypass (aka Roux-en-y) and the new vertical sleeve gastrectomy.
Our focus is to provide business analysis, advice and recommendations on how they can change their internal business processes and staffing in order to increase patient retention. For weight loss surgery patients, it is a very difficult and long process (6-12 months) to get a patient prepared, educated and approved by insurance for surgery. Our experience with programs across the country has allowed us to identify best practices for making this 6-12 month process much more patient friendly and shorter! Our average client sees a 30% increase in the # of surgeries they perform within 1 year of our engagement together.
These results are also a result of our significant market research and knowledge of best practices for appealing to potential patients as well as referring physicians. We also have extensive knowledge of the best information to provide on the web and how to increase visibility of websites.
Financially, we are able to provide a full financial performance analysis including contract pricing, coding and billing recommendations. We also offer program management services.
