A New Business Model- Cohan, Montgomery and Rothschild had a vision. They each worked in different realms of healthcare and saw that finding consultants that actually had a deliverable to offer was rare. Big accounting and law firms offered fancy and nicely worded reports and recommendations, but had little practical approaches towards implementation or the reports had no basis in reality. These firms charged exhorbitant fee's and was a waste of time and money. Thus grew the model for the Pinnacle Group. A combination of legal and healthcare professionals that manage cost and produce a result.
Executive profiles – Barry Cohan is the CEO of Pinnacle and has a law degree from Harvard. He has worked in healthcare consulting and legal consulting 20 years both government and private sector.

What happens when your hospial, HMO or ancillary provider runs into legal trouble, or wants to expand their network, or has trouble getting their claims paid. The usual answer has been to call in a top accounting or law firm. But these forms cost thousands of dollars and sometimes they simply provide a fancy report detailing all the little issues your company might have, but with no practical solutions.
PINNACLE offers something completely different. PINNACLE listens to your needs, performs a statistical analysis and then implements your desired goals and objectives using your parameters, financial constraints or budgets and meets your companies goals and objectives.
