About Alton Healthcare
Alton Healthcare launched in 2008 under the leadership of Dr. Ernie Fletcher. Our goal is to leverage technology and workflows as tools to reform clinical practices, identify practice efficiencies, and deliver the highest quality of care to the maximum number of patients.
Using a franchise model Alton Healthcare seeks to partner with physician practices in order to implement our proprietary patient flow model. Within six to eight months of partnering with Alton Healthcare, a physician practice will move into their new clinical space, a paperless environment, with full scheduling and billing support. Their new clinical model, involving mid-level nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and new office layout will triple their current patient capacity.
As Alton Healthcare grows their number of partnerships, patients will be able to walk into Alton Healthcare practices across the United States and find a comfortable, familiar, and friendly environment.
