ARG is a U.S. based consulting company that operates solely in the ENT space. First and foremost, ARG has developed a unique web-based contracting process that enables them to deliver below market pricing to their client on premium hearing aid technology. ARG awarded a 5-year contract to 5 manufacturing partners. The partners are Phonak, Unitron, Widex, Starkey and Signia. ARG believes they can provide better service and counsel to a finite number of large practices. The group is limited and those practices can expect the following: • Data Modeling: ARG has comprehensive data modeling capabilities to develop fact-based statistics for each of the practices in the group. And since each member is of a similar profile, data from one group can be compared to the performance of the entire group of 40 practices to uncover strengths and areas of opportunity. • ARG Healthcare Alliance—The Healthcare Alliance was established with a partner to secure leverage in negotiating medical coverage for consortium members and their employees and families. We have leverage with the number of lives our members collectively represent and this program is only available to ARG Consortium members. • ARG Marketplace Powered by Drs4Drs—A single portal resource for ordering any product that would be normally placed in a medical practice. This thousand-product resource is available exclusively to our members to source products at previously negotiated prices. • 1st Choice – We have an alternative solution for the TPA/Insurance for our practices. 1st Choice has higher fitting fees for providers and a lower price for patients. 1st Choice also allows the practices more flexibility with products and allows the practice to maintain ownership of the patient.
