SMSO ConsultingWhether you are a physician with years of experience, or a new physician just starting a medical practice, running a private practice can be more challenging. Despite this, the rewards of practicing medicine in a private practice environment are significant.

Specialty Management Services of Ouachita provides expert advice to help physicians manage and grow their practice. We also help doctors and their staff rediscover the joy of practicing medicine. This is accomplished by helping physicians focus on what they do best.

Specialty Management Services of Ouachita uses data, experience and judgment to reduce the inherent uncertainty of resource-allocation decisions. We also provide fresh thinking and creativity to determine which initiatives will work best. Healthcare reform has dramatically altered the playing field for payers and delivery systems, putting emphasis on quality and cost with continued pressure on reimbursement.

SMSO collaborates with a wide range of healthcare providers, including hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers,  primary and specialty physician practices to help them survive and thrive in the rapidly evolving healthcare. We help clients develop and implement unique solutions that respond to challenges emerging from a marketplace impacted by shifting demographics, increasing “retailization” of healthcare, reimbursement & constrained budget pressure, ongoing vertical integration and consolidation, and a changing regulatory environment.
