2021 PE GI Solutions Highlights
As 2021 ends, we look back at some highlights of what proved to be a challenging yet rewarding year. Despite fighting COVID-19 variants, our partners and their staff across the country remained committed to providing high-quality care to patients. Below is a timeline of five of the most notable highlights of 2021 for PE GI Solutions:
March 1st: Physicians Endoscopy becomes PE GI Solutions
Perhaps the biggest highlight of 2021 was the rebrand of Physicians Endoscopy to PE GI Solutions. The move marked the already successful transition into the practice management side of the GI industry. It also allowed us to continue to develop our Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) management and development services.
“We are moving forward and expanding our comprehensive solutions to GI providers,” President and CEO David Young said at the time. “The brand expansion takes us closer to the patients being involved in the practice side of things as well – having the ability to provide GI physicians with support services to cover the spectrum of care from the practice to ancillary services, all the way to ASC’s.”
Furthermore, combined with the strategic joint venture partnership with Capital Digestive Care in August 2019, and the subsequent creation of the PE Practice Solutions platform, PE GI Solutions has seen considerable growth in its practice management operations.
“PE GI Solutions is unique in that it is a holistic solution include full-service management, finance, clinical and designed solely for the GI physician,” Young said. “Operational excellence, information technology, physician recruitment, human resources, and revenue cycle management. Through a series of strategies, it helps GI physicians run payor contracting, marketing, policy advocacy, and specialty their businesses, remain independent, and gain more time and ancillary services. to spend with, and deliver quality care to, patients. It’s an all-encompassing offering for GI physicians.”
While we moved into the practice space, our goal remained the same. We will continue to provide holistic solutions that allow GI physicians to run their business. They will also remain independent, and gain more time to focus on delivering high-quality care to patients.
