Service Line Transformation

Disrupting and Transforming the MSK Market

Traditional consulting models often result in limited long-term impact. Many consultants come in for a short period of time, make recommendations and then leave. 

HOPCo is in it for the long haul and the results prove it.

Service line transformation, much more than traditional co-management, can help you drive quality, operational, and financial success through our turnkey platform. Hospital systems across the nation seek our help in managing their orthopedic service lines because we know orthopedics – better than anyone.

Our programs provide an unsurpassed management of performance for the entire continuum of care for orthopedic patients from initial consultation through rehabilitation and beyond. When hospitals engage HOPCo, we work closely with all areas that impact the orthopedic service line and implement key performance indicators through the OR, physician engagement, nursing, case management, physical therapy, value-based care and more. These indicators drive results by focusing and aligning all stakeholders on clinical care, patient education, customer service, productivity and growth.  You gain exclusive access to quality and operational platforms, including centers of excellence, predictive analytics, outcomes-based modeling, and process improvement efforts.
