Let's Get Fiscal - Anesthesia Management Consultants Aim To Increase Anesthesia's ROI

There's a business that consults for everything these days. I just did a Google wildcard search for "top * consultants" and here's what I got as a result:

  • marketing
  • management
  • products
  • services
  • marketing
Then I started typing in random phrases like pets and found:

  • pet nutrition
  • animal eye consultants
  • family pet consulting
  • animal behavior
Needless to say, there's a consultant for anything and everything it seems. So it was interesting when I began delving into some research for the medical industry and realized that one big money industry was missing a seemingly important niche of consulting. The industry is medicine (more specifically anesthesia), and the niche is process improvement. There have been many exposes in recent years about the relative inefficiencies of the health care industry, so it would seem like this should have at least popped up in the past few years, but there seems to be a surprising hole still in the marketplace.

This seems fundamental at first glance, but try a Google search for this and you'll be floored. Yes, there are a handful of companies operating in a space like "anesthesia management consultants" but before you get to the bottom of the first page you'll start seeing generic results for sites like

All things considered, I'd say this is a niche that's ready to explode.
