Collaboration is at the heart of the Shared Services Alliance. This model seeks to build on the best aspects of collaboration among the member centers, including: vendors (to improve both service and price), training, tech support and information exchange.
Another benefit of the Alliance is marketing support, allowing Alliance members to utilize a consultant to develop and implement marketing strategies to help boost enrollment efforts that would not be financially realistic for individual centers.
