Now, more than ever, it is challenging to succeed as independent medical providers who must juggle new federal requirements and ensure patients have immediate access to their data. Specialty Management Services of Ouachita, LLC (SMSO) manages these barriers so that physicians can focus on what matters most: patient care.
SMSO, Louisiana's premiere medical management company, manages the myriad of expectations for physician practices, small healthcare facilities, large hospitals, and even on-site employee medical clinics for a Fortune 200 company.
SMSO, founded more than 18 years ago, discovered a need for expertise regarding the business side of medicine. Our company, which is partially owned by physicians, created several distinct service lines in response to physician needs. Our management of these services allowed physician owners to focus on their primary target: patient care. SMSO's management expertise extended throughout Louisiana after the state sought the company's assistance in implementing electronic healthcare software in all state-funded public health units.
Implementing organizational change is daunting, but it can be particularly tricky in healthcare. Rising costs, technology advancements, and reform initiatives mean mandatory change for most healthcare organizations. Our consultants, many of whom have more than 20 years of experience, will ensure your practice achieves your long-term business goals while meeting healthcare quality regulations.
