Practice & Billing Management

Family Health Organization (FHO) Model

The Family Health Organization (FHO) model is the latest standard in medical practice management. A single FHO unit can be composed of at least 3 doctors who can even work out of multiple locations but collaborate to provide leading healthcare to patients. The FHO model uses a hybrid billing system which combines salaried capitation payments with a variable income stream. For doctors, the FHO model provides income security regardless of the ever-changing number of patients that walks through the doors of their clinic; for patients, this integrated model of healthcare delivery means improved access to the medical care they need.

Why Transition to the FHO Model?

Since its development, countless doctors have made the switch to this streamlined funding and billing model. The FHO model has proven to provide medical practices with great benefits in terms of practice management, in particular, increased flexibility and income. With these benefits, countless doctors have since transitioned from the fee-for-service model to the FHO and now enjoy a more steady and predictable revenue stream.

Key benefits of the FHO practice and billing management model include:

  • Improved work-life balance due to shared on-call responsibilities and options to delegate treatments to allied health practitioners
  • Steady, predictable income stream as a result of capitation payments, with opportunities for Access Bonus payouts
  • Paid vacations for clinic staff, which boost team morale, wellness, and productivity
  • Financial and operational security in the event of a disability
  • Financial incentives for providing broad-based, comprehensive, and preventative healthcare treatments
  • Improved financial and operational performance of the practice overall.
