Improve coordination of care for cancer patients and increase in-system referrals
Ascension asked KKM to evaluate its oncology service line and make recommendations to improve the integration of care and coordination of providers in order to align services and reduce referrals outside of the system.
Creation of a state-wide integration of services
KKM recommendations included a comprehensive, state-wide program that integrates clinical, operational, and financial functions through a series of joint-ventured companies to address diverse needs by effectively utilizing resources across geographic areas.
These services will be managed at a state-wide level, but with local autonomy to implement programs specific to individual community needs. Local initiatives may include real estate assets, equipment, staffing, and execution of efficiency and quality programs.
KKM is currently involved in the implementation of this multi-year, strategic plan designed to support Ascension in its dedication to deliver compassionate personalized care for all – especially those most in need.

Independent physicians looking to create a vascular treatment center
Several independent physician practices approached KKM with an idea to develop their own vascular treatment center without having to form a single group practice. KKM outlined several options including one that involved aligning with a hospital who could offer support for their program.
KKM engaged with Atlantic Health System to develop a unique program which aligned the hospital and the physician practices into a single program offering flexibility for all.
Our solution included the development of a 5,500 sq.ft. medical office that operates as a satellite location for each practice. The hospital system provides day-to-day management, as well as staffing for the operation, while the physicians continue to operate the facility as an office-based practice dedicated to each practice’s patients. KKM provided a full, turnkey solution to Atlantic including equipment and design planning, supply chain management, and coordination of patient billing for each physician practice.
