Using temporary or part time medical providers to cover critical gaps in coverage is a proven effective strategy for keeping a practice operating smoothly to both protect patient base and maintaining revenue streams. Locum tenens providers temporarily cover the duties of other practitioners, thus relieving the demands on the permanent staff and allowing a practice to maintain the proper high-quality levels of patient care for those they serve. These temporary positions typically range anywhere in length from weekends to six months or longer.

Why Ascend Medical

Our consultants are proven professionals each averaging over 18 years of experience in the locum tenens medical staffing arena. Ascend consultants started when our industry, and the companies for whom they worked, were young. Ascend developed tight bonds with its clients and providers. Ascend was accountable to them, and to each other. Ascend cared. And together, an incredible industry emerged where clients, providers, and patients were all taken care of.

As the industry grew and changed, the founders of Ascend Medical began witnessing an industry-wide decline in accountability and service to physicians and clients as many staffing firms began focusing less on people and more on their bottom lines. The founders of Ascend Medical saw an opportunity to return to a more people-centric relationship focused approach so in 2015 Ascend Medical was formed with a group of like-minded industry veterans who were committed to honesty, accountability, listening, and to being trusted partners.

Ascend delivers superior service to both our clients and our providers. Ascend believed that this is accomplished through strong relationships, responsiveness and honest communication, providing the basis for lasting relationships built on productive and positive outcomes. Ascend Medical consistently finds the right fit for each practice as the company knows each request for locum tenens providers is unique and crucial to the success of the practice. Ascend focuses on providing tailored services to meet the needs of each specific practice and the company’s provider representatives have the specialized knowledge to help ensure we find the best possible matches for any given practice situation.

“The money I have invested in AdvancedMD is miniscule compared to the return. I have never been more efficient – ever – in my professional life as I am now.”

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
