Allied OMS Words to Live By

In today’s competitive OMS landscape, picking a partner you can trust with the next phase of growth and success for your practice couldn’t be more important. It’s a decision we think should be based on shared values – like Integrity, Grace, Service, and Care.

We don’t settle for anything less in the partners we choose, and we believe you shouldn’t either.

At Allied OMS, these are more than just the words we use to describe our approach to partnership. They are the founding principles we live by every day in our work with our doctors, their teams, and their patients. They are the cornerstone of our unique Doctor Equity™ model and our doctor-led governance model, including the industry’s only doctor-majority board of directors.

Taken together, Allied’s Words to Live By tells the story of our distinctive approach to partnership. Hear Allied OMS doctors and members of the board discuss what these words mean to them, and the difference it made in their decision to join the Allied family.

We’ll feature a new word each month throughout 2024.

January
Integrity; Dan Hosler, CEO

“As I think about words that we live by in serving our doctor partners, the first that comes to mind is integrity. While it goes by many definitions, to me, integrity means acting our values, truthfully, even when no one is looking. Our core tenets – alignment of interests amongst all our stakeholders, transparency into the private equity and MSO business models, and better economics for our doctor partners – all guide our approach to partnership, and integrity means always marrying our intentions and actions with those values.”

February
Grace; Dr. David Kostohryz, Founding Doctor 

“At Allied OMS, we embody grace by treating patients, staff, and colleagues with kindness and compassion. As oral surgeons, we combine our healing abilities with a servant’s heart, practicing grace in our work, and collectively our business model is rooted in grace – a shared pursuit of charity, fairness, transparency, and honesty in our relationship with all of our patients, staff, and our doctor partners.”

March
Data; Ryan Graham, COO

“Data is fundamental to every decision we make at Allied OMS. We’re maniacal in how we analyze data so it can help us optimize processes across our platform, improve overall operational efficiency and effectiveness, and, ultimately, drive better patient care. By unlocking data buried in our practices, analyzing and benchmarking, and then visualizing the results, our doctors can more efficiently manage their practices and, in turn, spend more time delivering exceptional patient care.”

April
Outcomes; Dr. Jonathon Jundt, Founding Doctor and Chief Medical Officer

“Meaningful outcomes data incorporates a multifactorial approach. An approach that includes information about the patient, provider, facility, and product manufacturers yields greater insight into the reasons behind variation in outcome.”

May
Growth; Dr. Vicente Chavez, Board Member

I define Growth as a maturation process that improves one’s life. In my personal life, staying active and living in a way that balances the mind, body, and spirit helps me grow. Professionally, growth to me means learning from every procedure I perform and honing my surgical skills to provide better outcomes for my patients. Having Allied as a partner allows me to focus more on my personal and professional Growth, thereby bringing daily enrichment to my practice.
