AECP does not purchase medical practices from ophthalmologists or optometrists. We work as partners to enhance a practice’s performance for its owners. AECP will invest in and co-venture eye care services with practitioners and health systems.
AECP will provide project-specific consulting support to eye care practices. Areas of expertise, experience and special interest for consulting support include strategic planning, practice productivity performance evaluations, mergers, acquisitions and sales, marketing, practice ownership restructurings, provider compensation plans and clinical program design and development.
AECP will source and provide capital for co-investment in strategic projects such as ambulatory surgery centers, clinical facilities and retail product enterprises (optical shops, for example). AECP may be a co-investor and co-manager of such investments along with active, practicing providers.
AECP will provide ongoing, senior-level advisory support to administrative and physician leaders. These arrangements are retainer-based, extending for more prolonged periods and typically addressing a list of issues requiring experienced problem-solving and decision-making. Retainer-based arrangements deliver AECP’s full portfolio of support capabilities provided through a single point of contact with a senior AECP services professional.
AECP will, for qualified practices, extend practice support services by way of long-term services agreements. These Management Services Agreements (MSA’s) facilitate the extension of such services as: patient billing and revenue cycle management, full financial record keeping, performance analytics, benchmarking and reporting, practice productivity performance analytics and reporting, human resource policies and procedures systems support, practice insurances and risk management support, accounts payable systems support, employee payroll management and capital asset management support, including facilities.
AECP provides leadership, management support and co-investment in provider-owned eye care practices. We operate from our own multi-specialty, multi-site, comprehensive care "living laboratory." We provide three levels of client alignment opportunities.
Level one enables AECP to be your eye practice "sounding board".
Moving up from our "sounding board" services, level two starts moving into partnerships, co-investment and co-management.
Our third tier of alignment is our most comprehensive. We fully integrate and align with your practice.
AECP is always seeking forward thinking eye care professionals who believe they are better off with like-minded partners. We partner best with eye care professionals who may require external expertise, management support and outside capital, but who wish to remain active in the leadership and operations of their practice. Our most successful partnerships are with practice leaders, medical and managerial, who wish to collaborate across an integrated network of like-minded, dedicated partners.
