TRG Healthcare is a premier management consulting firm with a unique blend of capabilities to serve the needs of Academic Medical Centers (AMCs), schools of medicine, teaching hospitals and faculty practice plans. For more than 16 years, TRG has been helping academic healthcare service organizations nationwide with a wide variety of strategic, financial, and transactional issues.
TRG's team of consultants includes senior-level healthcare leaders who have firsthand experience working as CEOs, CFOs, and COOs in academic health care settings and are leading experts in the field. The professionals at TRG have a deep understanding of the complexities of academic medicine, recognizing the synergies and natural tensions between the educational, research and clinical missions of these organizations.
TRG appreciates the many challenges confronting academic providers in the current environment and has the resources and services in place to help AMCs thrive during these uncertain times. TRG has proven results in a variety of areas and are committed to develping innovative solutions and new ways of thinking to foster success. Three recent areas of innovation and growing client interest include:
*Re-differentiation of Academic Medical Centers©: TRG is the originator of the term Re- differentiation of Academic Medical Centers© speaking to the fact that AMCs are opportunely positioned to materially differentiate themselves from competitors by returning to their earliest roots as specialized entities where discovery and technically-difficult patient care take place. TRG helps AMCs craft strategies and execute solutions that foster “re-differentiation” in highly competitive markets.
*Integration without Merger©: TRG established the trade term Integration without Merger© to describe an innovative approach to strategic alignment that allows AMCs to collaborate on a selective basis with other high quality providers and achieve substantial, mutual benefits without any changes in ownership or control. TRG helps AMC clients assess the feasibility of Integration without Merger© in their markets and, when it makes sense, assist in assembling the pieces to achieve optimal results.
*Dual Member Model©: TRG is an innovator in the restructuring of economic relationships between medical schools, clinic faculty and their primary teaching hospital(s). Most recently, TRG developed the Dual Member Model© to realign the economic relationships for a leading AMC in the Northeast. Based on where healthcare payments and incentives are headed, TRG believes the appropriate economic alignment model is key to effective functioning and future profitability.
