Health Economic Advisors

Established in 2007, Health Economic Advisors (HEA) is a national healthcare-consulting firm specializing in bariatric program development, accreditation, and data entry. HEA will assist your bariatric team in developing structure within your program by educating staff on and implementing the most appropriate and efficient processes and tools necessary to conform to the MBSAQIP standards and maintain bariatric accreditation readiness throughout the three-year accreditation cycle.

Accreditation today focuses on data and requires programs to employ a Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Clinical Reviewer (MBSCR). The MBSCR is a key position in any program. HEA will provide your facility with an RN/LPN who is a certified MBSCR experienced in bariatric data abstraction, quality improvement, and the accreditation process. While helping ensure your program is in compliance with the MBSAQIP standards regarding data entry, the MBSCR also uses the data to identify the need for and assist with Quality Improvement Initiatives.

Whether you are starting a bariatric program and would like to better understand bariatric surgical service line profitability and the accreditation process or are an established bariatric program wanting to pursue/maintain accreditation, increase surgical volume, or implement quality improvement programs, HEA is the solution for you!
