vler Healthcare Consulting, EHC, believes that an opportunity for hospital revenue increases exists in the highly complex (specialty/proprietary) services that are available through a limited number of providers. 

In contrast to commodity services, specialty/proprietary services depend on a hospital’s capability to care for patients with complex needs. Some examples of proprietary services range from high risk obstetrical services to neurological services. Due to highly specialized nature of this services, they cannot be easily provided by the average competitor; therefore the provider/hospital supplying such services is automatically differentiated from its pairs. 

The corollary of this situation is that the buyer/consumer cannot shop by price because these specialty/proprietary services are not available elsewhere.

Evler Healthcare Consulting, EHC, is led and owned by John Evler, who organized and managed Insurance Service Pricing for Seton and the Seton Health Plan as its President and COO from its creation and licensure in 1995 through 2009. Evler and his associates have extensive hospital and physician practice management experience in finance and managed care contract, pricing and contract negotiation.
