Value At Work
Having Joined HMS Valuation Partners in 2014, Travis’s primary focus is valuing compensation for clinical services provided by physicians. More specifically, Travis’s work often entails an operational assessment, financial analysis of cash flow management, and a reimbursement analysis. He oversees the review of each provider’s procedural code analysis in order to understand the case mix, work productivity ratios, and reasonability of professional and technical collections. While considering clinical compensation within the context of additional compensation sources, Travis will also provide valuation opinions on administrative services (i.e. teaching, directorships of departments, etc.) or call coverage shifts. Routinely working with hospital Administrators, CFO’s, and CEO’s, as well as practice managers when dealing with compensation agreements and/or acquisitions, Travis especially enjoys seeing a project through from data gathering to the culmination of Fair Market Value.

He went on to receive his Masters of Business Administration, with a concentration in finance, in 2005 from the University of New Orleans.

Value Outside Work
My favorite things to do as a kid were. . .
Spending most of my time outside of school playing sports and video games with other kids in my neighborhood. We’d play football, basketball, soccer, etc. We also had many sleepovers playing video games—the most fun game was GoldenEye 007 on Nintendo 64.
As a big kid, I like to. . .
Play games and watch movies with my wife and two daughters.
One of the things I hope to do. . .
Is to escape the busyness by retiring in a motorhome and traveling the country.
