Southwind – a division of The Advisory Board Company – provides specialized management and consulting services designed to transform the business and delivery of health care, with an emphasis on the physician relationship. Working with healthcare organizations across the country, Southwind provides experienced, progressive physician practice management; practice performance improvement engagements designed to enhance ROI; end-to-end mergers and acquisitions support; expertise in building value-based care programs to prepare for shifting payment models; comprehensive medical staff development and physician recruitment services; and hospital performance management to ensure long-term sustainability.
Founded in 1998 with a vision to create a physician practice management firm able to achieve measurable improvements in financial and operating results, as well as in the quality of the physician-hospital relationship, Southwind’s approach has been a hands-on, side-by-side partnership with clients. In its initial eleven-plus years, Southwind became recognized nationally as the leading physician practice operational development and improvement resource for hospital-sponsored physician enterprises.
In December 2009, Southwind was acquired by The Advisory Board Company, an organization with governing principles similar to its own: the force of ideas, the power of language, the spirit of generosity, and the conviction that exceptional contribution requires running to criticism. The acquisition enabled a dramatic expansion of the Clinical Integration Initiative that the Advisory Board had begun. We are now the preeminent firm in the area of establishing clinical integration programs, with a rapidly growing practice in the care transformation work required for population health management.
Southwind further cemented its reputation as a national leader in physician practice management when The Advisory Board Company acquired PivotHealth, a practice management firm specializing in long-term practice management, in 2011. Most recently, Southwind inherited the hospital cost and operations improvement service line of The Advisory Board Company. Now, with a core focus on assisting hospitals achieve Medicare breakeven, Southwind is pleased to introduce Hospital Performance Management inclusive of operational efficiency and cost reduction, capacity management and care coordination, and strategy development.
It is Southwind’s physician practice management expertise, broad experience aligning physicians and hospitals in the pursuit of accountable care, and hands-on support to improve hospital performance – provided alongside Advisory Board resources and best-practice research – that position Southwind as the premier provider of management and consulting services in the health care industry.
