Local Physician Looks to Disrupt Healthcare with Management Services Organization for Independent Physicians

The CEO of Vein911® announced the launch of Health Performance Specialists (HPS), a Management Services Organization for independent physicians.

Changing regulations, policies, and technology are forcing doctors to spend a burdensome amount of time on administrative tasks and not enough on their patients.”
— Chris Pittman, M.D., CEO of Health Performance Specialists

TAMPA, FL, USA, July 10, 2018 / -- The CEO of Vein911® Vein Treatment Centers, 21-year cancer survivor, and healthcare industry veteran, Chris Pittman, M.D., announced today the official launch of Health Performance Specialists (HPS), a national Management Services Organization for independent physicians. HPS helps independent physicians compete, succeed, and thrive in today's medical practice environment. The organization is designed to disrupt current healthcare delivery by uniting top quality independent physicians, so they can profit from economies of scale without sacrificing the benefits of being small. The benefits include group purchasing agreements, sharing operational and information technology solutions, leveraging common back office staff, and analyzing healthcare data for better patient outcomes – benefits usually enjoyed by physicians employed by large groups or hospitals.

Yet, research shows that small, physician-owned practices provide better responsiveness to patient needs, have lower average cost per patient, and fewer hospital admissions than large, independent- and hospital-owned practices. Independent physicians are over-burdened by the rising cost of government reporting, information technology, and changing reimbursement models. Many physicians have been forced to sell their practice and become employees of larger physician groups or hospitals. HPS was created to level the playing field across the ever-consolidating medical-industrial complex. The HPS team assists or assumes any or all practice functions so physicians can remain engaged with their patients and provide the best care possible.

“The healthcare environment is changing like a tsunami, volcano, or hurricane changes the landscape, making it difficult for doctors to continue operating independently,” said Chris Pittman, M.D., CEO of Health Performance Specialists. “Changing regulations, policies, and technology are forcing doctors to spend a burdensome amount of time on administrative tasks and not enough on their patients. HPS is designed to help physicians who understand the value of small practices and share our mission of Engaged Physicians. Delighted Patients.”
