Ancillary Care Strategies (ACS) was founded to assist physicians and healthcare organizations establish and manage exceptional physical therapy practices. Mounting costs, declining profits, and added bureaucracy in the medical industry highlighted the need for more efficient and profitable ancillary services. Within 5 years, ACS had helped open nearly 100 therapy practices nationwide. In 2005, realizing the power of the data being collected from the therapy practices, ACS-IntelliWorks, our online business intelligence tool, was launched.
Using the knowledge gained from the early therapy practice start-ups, the next step was the transformation of therapy service lines in organizations with opportunities for operational improvements, strategic growth and profitability. Our long-term commitments and client partnerships led to continued growth for ACS.
In 2014, ACS integrated its therapy management and cultural transformation expertise with process improvement methodologies (Lean and Six Sigma) to create the Ancillary Care Strategies Operations System (ACSOS), the foundation of our services. It enabled operational excellence and competitive differentiation for our new and existing clients. This universally applied business system allowed ACS to expand its services to additional markets including medical practices, revenue cycle management, manufacturing, and transactional environments (e.g. offices and restaurants).
ACS, using operational excellence, leads the integration of business units and divisions across the country within small to mid-sized companies. Partner-clients rely on ACS to evolve their processes and systems as they integrate and grow to achieve their stretch goals. Ancillary Care Strategies continues to add millions of dollars to clients’ bottom lines.
