BK Health Care Consulting LLC, is a consulting/training firm that helps health care organizations make the shift from volume to value and achieve the Triple Aim through clinical culture change. We specialize in home health care, long term care, outpatient and medical practice settings.
Our mission is to provide less theory and more focused, customized and practical analysis and solutions distilled from over 40 years of experience in the “trenches” of health care clinical practice and management. We share our practical “insider tips” through training and reference materials that are useful enough to be used again and again as the organization evolves its change efforts. Our goal is to empower clients with new tools, techniques, skills, mental models and self-confidence so that they can take their organizational efforts further and faster.
