CFO Services

Virtual CFO Services And Business Consulting

We help owners and executives of small and middle-market private medical practices, healthcare, biomed, biotech, medical device manufacturing, and life science businesses accelerate their growth and take them to the next level by offering a variety of Outsourced Virtual CFO Services, Strategic Business and Financial Planning, Business Consulting, Business Intelligence and Dashboards, and Startup CFO Solutions.

What Makes Our CFO Services Unique?

Our process begins with custom designing the fit-for-purpose CFO Services to help accelerate our client's growth while also taking into account their needs, key milestones, realistic execution deliverables, and budget.  We do this by taking a holistic view to building processes and teams, as opposed to an a-la-carte menu of services.  This is the way we ran businesses for Fortune 500 and Fortune Global 100 companies and high net worth families who have built significant companies.  We have just tailored our approach to the specific needs of smaller, private companies.

We make it easy for our clients to plug and play our services into their organizations.  We offer flexible service options (Outsourced CFO, Fractional CFO, Part Time CFO, Interim CFO based on availability, CFO Consulting, Outsourced Financial Planning and Analysis), reliable virtual capabilities and SMEs, hybrid onsite and virtual engagements, and our technology stack leverages affordable cloud technologies and apps.  We offer CFO Advisory Services that essentially wrap around a company's accounting provider.  Not surprisingly, our custom solutions are often less expensive than other alternatives.    

Physician CFO Service Plans

The Healthcare CFO has developed a Physician CFO Service (also known as a Doctor CFO or Medical Practice CFO) package that looks at monthly or quarterly cash flow, financial performance, and even analyzes financial data from your EHR revenue cycle and medical billing provider (ex. Athenahealth). The package was designed with physician/owners in mind, it targets the cash flow challenges they face, and is helps them run successful practices so they can put back cash in their pockets.

Every business needs a financial plan to meet its growth expectations, including physician practices. To learn more, see our blog post How Outsourcing Your CFO Work Can Strengthen Your Medical Practice.

 

Outsourced CFO Services

Hiring an outsourced CFO to manage your company’s finances is a great way to strengthen and grow your business. For private companies, there are so many choices other than just hiring a full-time and part-time CFO. For example, a Fractional CFOs are outsourced cfos that are retained to work when you need them. Or maybe you want to limit CFO work to a special CFO Consulting project which is another form of outsourced cfo services we offer. Most of our services are virtual cfo services as most work can be completed remotely.

Are you worried you might run out of cash in your business?
 
Does your cash flow fluctuate up and down a lot, making it hard to know whether you’ll have enough? 
 
Is your bank balance so low that you’re having to closely manage it on a daily basis, wasting precious time you could be using building or re-building your business?

If so, you’re in the perfect place to benefit from our cash flow forecast service.  Not knowing your company’s future cash balance can cause you to miss financial goals, and in some cases, cause catastrophic problems if shortfalls are not caught early enough.  See why our healthcare cfo blogger says Cash Flow Forecasting is the Number One #1 Financial Planning Tool for Business.

We Want You And Your Business to Thrive!

Owning and running a private company is tough. Your least abundant resource is time and if you are growing - you never have enough cash flow. As companies grow and scale, it’s common for us to see clients often hit a series of growing pains. 

  • Struggling to treat patients and run their businesses because they are overrun with too many responsibilities.

  • Unfamiliarity with what is going on with the financial health of their companies. 

  • Not getting relevant and impactful information they need to aid in decision making.

  • Encountering growth resistance points and frustrated with an inability to make traction.

  • Feeling something is off or there is a gap, but not exactly sure what "it" is. 

  • Not getting candid feedback, constructive guidance, or practical solutions to tackle problems.

We have experience helping clients with these issues and much more. What we do is help you see the big picture and understand how the administrative and operational pieces of your business impact your profitability, cash flow, and/or hold back growth so you can take action.  We offer a range of virtual cfo services including Physician CFO Services, Outsourced Financial Planning and Analysis Services, and Strategic Planning.
