One of the nation’s leading physician executives announced today the launch of a new consulting firm designed to provide healthcare organizations the competitive edge they need to succeed in today’s challenging healthcare environment.

Federico Health Group (FHG), founded by Frank Federico, M.D., has been expressly created to help medical groups, health systems, hospitals and health plans successfully tackle the myriad of challenges and opportunities being driven, in great part, through the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (healthcare reform). These include significant changes in reimbursement for providers, new focus on quality performance, the realities of limited resources to care for an increasingly older citizenry, and the emergence of new models of care including accountable care organizations and a focus on population health management.

Heading FHG is Dr. Federico who brings to each client a depth and breadth of healthcare expertise not readily found elsewhere, the result of more than two decades of clinical practice coupled with extensive executive management experience. Most recently, Dr. Federico served as president/CEO of Lakeside Systems Inc., an integrated, coordinated-care provider network of more than 400 primary care physicians and 1,000 specialists caring for over 250,000 members in Southern California specializing in capitated payments and financial risk management.

At Federico Health Group, Dr. Federico teams up with seasoned healthcare professionals, thus allowing him to match the right skills and personalities to each assignment so as to ensure that each client has access to the best, veteran “brain power” available anywhere.

The firm’s unique commitment to accountability, affordability and value creation is designed to provide each client the perspective and resources needed to achieve their financial, clinical, operational and healthcare reform goals.

“Our agency is founded on the core belief that providing superior value to our clients is not only the best way to help a client achieve its business goals but is also the key to our own success and long-term sustainability,” said Dr. Federico. “Our goal is to provide each client with actionable and measurable recommendations that maximize the likelihood of success while building long-term relationships based on credibility and trust.”

Among the many services Federico Health Group provides is support, counsel and expertise in such areas as:

“The healthcare industry is poised for greater change than ever before, and that creates incredible opportunities for those organizations prepared to meet the challenge,” says Dr. Federico. “Our unique blend of frontline clinical and administrative expertise combined with an obsessive passion to deliver value in ways that exceed client expectations is the formula many organizations need to maximize their potential and achieve their financial, clinical and operational goals.”
