Gastroenterologists Find a Partner in New Managed Services Organization Focused on Independent GI Practices
JAMISON, Pa (Aug. 1, 2019) - Physicians Endoscopy (PE) and Capital Digestive Care announce a strategic partnership in a transaction, which closed on August 1st. The companies are joining forces to offer a platform solution for gastroenterologists seeking an alternative to acquisition, allowing them to retain ownership of their practices and focus on patient care. Under this partnership, PE has dramatically broadened their ability to support GI Physicians across all aspects of their endoscopy center and private practice business operations.
Capital Digestive Care is recognized nationally for operating a best-in-class MSO (Managed Services Organization) that provides its affiliated practices with a wide range of services, including financial and revenue cycle management, information technology, marketing, and human resources. In addition, its rigorous quality improvement program led by a team of physicians improves quality care and value for patients.
The team behind the new venture already has the industry buzzing. "We believe we're well-positioned to disrupt the market," says President, Kevin Harlen. Under his direction as the COO from 2009–June 2019, Capital Digestive Care grew to be the largest private gastroenterology practice in the Mid-Atlantic states with one of the most sophisticated business operations platforms in the industry.
"We're excited to bring this platform to GI practices throughout the country," said David Young, president of PE. "This is in response to the needs of the market. It will help position gastroenterologists for the future of healthcare and protect the independent practice of medicine. We will have a solution that gives doctors a practice management solution and an ASC solution. That means one partner for all the needs within the GI space."
