Marcum Launches New Healthcare Consulting Division in Florida
Miami, FL - Marcum LLP (formerly known in Florida as Rachlin Cohen & Holtz LLP) announced today the launch of Marcum Healthcare LLC, a healthcare consulting organization focused on enhancing the day-to-day operations of payors and providers. The new organization is an extension of the Firm’s national healthcare accounting practice.
Led by Lawrence Schimmel, M.D., an industry veteran who has been both managing partner of a major surgical practice and chief executive officer of a national medical management company, Marcum Healthcare brings together highly experienced consultants in virtually every area of healthcare.
“Few industries have undergone the changes facing the healthcare industry today,” said Schimmel. “Sweeping new regulations, technology advances, and even subtle nuances, such as coding discrepancies, can have a major impact on an entity’s bottom line. Our team of experts is passionate about helping payors and providers understand those challenges and achieve their goals for growth and performance.”
Marcum Healthcare’s comprehensive services will focus on revenue cycle enhancement, including revenue cycle management, productivity, recoveries and operating models; technology, including electronic medical records, information systems and informatics; mergers and acquisitions; and regulatory issues and compliance. The services will be targeted to hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home health and long term care providers, physicians, managed care organizations, and ambulatory care centers, among others. Marcum Healthcare will also work with investors focused on healthcare entities and large employer groups.
