For Providers

Asking a physician to devote full energy to restoring patient health AND be an effective marketer of professional healthcare at the same time is unrealistic.  Great outcomes happen when commitment to patients is undiminished, and the full force of a professional marketing effort, like Northeast Georgia Health Partners, helps drive the financial success of your practice.

Equally important is the ability to influence the managed care environment.  This can be severely limited when a physician acts alone, but can exceed expectations when standing with more than 1000 skilled providers who speak with a single voice.

Simply put, we work with physicians to create a mutually beneficial  relationship between clinical practices and patients.  Insured members are pleased with their choices when they can access our list of top rated providers.  Physicians are aligned with a provider network that offers them more opportunities for new patient encounters and business expansion.  Health Partners benefits from partnering  with a group of highly skilled, professional providers offering exceptional patient care in the communities they serve.

Health Partners helps providers establish a sound financial foundation to help them grow their practice.
