In 1987, after eight years on Wall Street, Doug moved into healthcare. In 1988 he served two years as the Chairman of a publicly traded physical therapy company, took them through an acquisition, and then built his own private PT chain from scratch. He sold his interest in that venture in 2001 so he could help physicians add many more revenue sources than just PT. Since 2002 he has built compliant revenue models for physicians, groups, hospitals, ACOs and IPAs.
In 2018, Doug's former company DPT Healthcare Partners, won the Top 10 Innovation & Technology Companies In Healthcare award at the SmartHealth Conference (left photo). On June 20th, 2019, Doug was named among the Top 100 Leaders in Healthcare globally at the International Forum on Advancements in Healthcare Conference (above), and in 2021 Top 100 Visionaries in Healthcare because of his value based program you are reading about here. Doug has created several first to market models that have become industry standard.
We have harnessed the resources of a number of value based pioneers and companies to build our own platform rather than using multiple contractors under a consulting company.
All of our partners have deep, strategic relationships with policy makers and industry leaders. The team that produces this great singular platform is made up of many separate companies, all working under one umbrella.
Our mission is take this program, used previously only by institutions to quietly grade their physicians (and share nothing with them), and turn it around to give the physicians the cheat sheet and platform for superior practice earnings. This is literally the Dream Team of healthcare on a mission to drive value based physician compliance and revenue.
For almost 57 years Doug has been a pole vaulter. A 5 time All American and 3 time national champion in his youth, he had a personal best of 18'1". Doug was the 1996 Pole Vault Coaching Technician to the Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta. There he spent the last six weeks before the Games helping the coaches and athletes from around the world prepare on both the practice and competition fields. The photo to the right is of Doug winning the 2017 World Masters Games in Auckland, New Zealand, as shown on the cover of National Masters News. He has won several National Masters Championships and has won World Championships and World Championships medals on four continents. Doug is only the 3rd 60 year old to ever vault 13', and the only one to vault 13' in six decades. Like Doug says, "Some people golf and some people surf. This is my reason to workout".
