Outsourced CFO Services
This is one of our specialty services where we really excel. As an outsourced Chief Financial Officer, we typically help practices with budgeting, cash flow forecasting, and profitability analysis. Many of the health care providers we help in this way are not to the point where they need a full-time CFO. However, the benefits of having us onboard in an outsourced capacity typically improve profitability that goes far beyond the cost of our services.
