Maximizing Patient Care and Profitability with AOP's Support

Improving Patient Care and Profitability with AOP’s Support

For orthopedic surgeons looking for growth opportunities or to create more efficient workflows, investing in the right support is essential. But with so many options out there—from on-site tech and staff support to outsourcing services to affiliation or acquisition—it can be hard to decide which option is best for you. That’s where American Orthopedic Partners (AOP) comes in. AOP seeks to help its partners simultaneously improve patient care and profitability.

What is AOP?

American Orthopedic Partners (AOP) is an orthopedic enterprise and private equity partnership that helps small to medium orthopedic practices achieve scale and cope with various operational and strategic challenges. As a company supported by private equity, we understand that partnering with a private equity-backed company may require a leap of faith but not all private equity firms are the same. Our physician-led partnership model is designed to help orthopedic surgeons create transformational change within their practices.

At AOP, our mission is to help orthopedic practices operate more efficiently and improve the quality of patient care they offer. We share a commitment to excellent patient care and value, and our leadership team is made up of physicians with experience in healthcare innovation and business development.

What are the Benefits of Partnering with AOP?

For starters, we can provide growth strategies and tools for success while maintaining high-quality patient care.

Some of the key features we offer include:

  • Operational support: We can help you streamline operations, reduce costs, and improve revenue cycle management.
  • Clinical support: We can assist with clinical excellence initiatives, including the implementation of patient monitoring, data collection, and quality improvement programs.
  • Business development: We can help you expand your referral network, develop hospital and payor strategic partnerships, and identify new business opportunities.

Research shows that physician-led partnerships like AOP can help orthopedic practices improve clinical quality, increase patient satisfaction, and reduce costs.

For instance, a study published in the Current Reviews in Musculoskeletal Medicine found that physician-led accountable care organizations (ACOs) can improve coordination of care and reduce costs while maintaining high-quality outcomes. Similarly, a review article published in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons highlighted the importance of coordinated care in achieving high-value orthopedic care.

Partnering with AOP benefits your practice in many ways. Not only do we help you operate more efficiently and improve patient care, but we can also provide access to expertise and resources that may otherwise be out of reach. And perhaps most importantly, we can do all of this while helping you maintain your autonomy and independence as a practice.
