Business Life Cycle Management

Our team

Dr. Paul J. Pavlik, President & CEO

For over 25 years, Dr. Paul J. Pavlik “walked the walk” as a successful healthcare provider. He has had the experiences of starting his own practice, leading a large team and associate doctors, and working with all kinds of insurance programs including traditional, preferred provider organizations (PPOs), and capitation (CAP/HMO) plans. For the last 20 years, Dr. Pavlik has consulted on practice management, practice sales and leadership. He has worked with facilities with as few as 2 to over 600 employees.

Paul is the founder and CEO of Tracker Enterprises, Inc., a business advisory think tank that helps other doctors achieve financial success with unique tools previously unavailable – tools that do not replace but significantly augment information received from accountants, attorneys, bookkeepers, financial consultants, and software management programs. He coaches doctors on how to use sound Business Life Cycle Management principles including the LaunchGrowthExpansion and eventual Sale (Transition) out of clinical practice. Paul developed the unique IFF (Intuitive Financial Forecasting) practice management system to help doctors meet or exceed their goals. He authored the critically acclaimed book, Business Essentials for Healthcare Professionals, and has written over 75 practice management articles. He has also developed unique online accredited Continuing Education Programs that teach doctors how to operate successful businesses and, in turn, successful and healthy practices.

Paul offers clients a “big picture” perspective that allows doctors to easily interpret their metrics, key performance indicators (KPIs) and financial reports with the added ability to improve forecasting, budgeting, and “what if” scenarios. Paul is proud to have earned the reputation of being known as a part-time, off-site, or virtual CFO to the doctors he advises and coaches.

Dr. R. Ross Powell, Vice President

In 2019, Tracker Enterprises made a strong commitment to its future by naming Dr. R. Ross Powell as its new Vice President. Dr. Powell joins the team with a distinguished 30-year career spanning clinical dentistry, practice consulting and valuation, startup and small business development, creative marketing strategy, consultative sales and team development, and business relationships with hundreds of hospitals nationwide. And he has always measured his own success in terms of his clients’ success.

What makes Ross a perfect fit for Tracker is that his business acumen and clinical experience have demonstrated his exceptional ability to work with his clients through in-depth diagnostic processes and meticulous information-gathering, then providing insightful analysis of the findings and ultimately a strategic plan for reaching a successful outcome (i.e., the treatment planning process). Ross has dedicated his career to his deep-rooted belief that “Diagnosis begins with Dialogue.” Because If you don’t get to know the people who work there, you’ll never gain a complete understanding of the business. Ross brings this same fundamental details-driven approach to Tracker’s clients  — just as every patient is unique, every practice is unique and every doctor is unique.  Ross approaches each client as a new challenge, and is never satisfied until he has an in-depth understanding and appreciation of his client’s business, its staff, its internal operations, including its specific issues, concerns, needs, and wants.  Only then can he arrive at a solution that will meet or exceed his client’s goals. 

Whatever your specific goals, rest assured that Dr. Powell has the experience, insight, expertise and compassion to help you achieve or surpass those goals.
