Strategic Alliance Harnesses Artificial Intelligence to Alleviate Physician Compensation Challenges
Arlington, VA – May 22, 2019 – ECG Management Consultants and Hallmark Healthcare Solutions are excited to announce a Strategic Alliance Agreement for Heisenberg II (patent pending and trademarked), an artificially intelligent, cloud-based software that empowers health systems and physician groups to increase transparency and enable validation throughout their physician compensation process. This partnership will allow Administrations to more efficiently develop, manage, and evaluate their physician compensation plans.
Josh Halverson, Principal at ECG, explains that Heisenberg II is designed to alleviate the challenges healthcare leaders face in administering and managing physician compensation. “Physician leaders need to focus more on leading their organizations and less on the administrative components of their position,” he said, adding that the alliance with Hallmark will create unique opportunities for ECG.
“We believe our physician compensation advisory services, coupled with the infrastructure, quality solutions, and technology platform of Heisenberg II, create the ideal environment to strategically expand our services in the physician compensation and management space.”
Also commenting on the alliance was Hallmark president and CEO Isaac Ullatil. “The alliance with ECG creates the opportunity for Hallmark to become a formidable leader in the healthcare sector, where the prospects of providing differentiated intellectual capital and solutions are significant,” Ullatil said. “We are really excited about the new range of services and geographies we are able to embrace through this collaboration.”
