Our methodology also handles the challenges arising due to lack of availability of quality physician level data while modeling in low data environments. iFolio™ provides vast flexibility and analysis options for running various size and structure scenarios, and is capable of performing economic trade-offs. Moreover, execution level issues are always considered throughout the process, notwithstanding that even the best analysis is worthless if the resulting scenario cannot be implemented. Our approach provides the best size and structure based on your needs, constraints and business objectives.
