Ricky Newton

Ricky Newton

Ricky Newton, CPA has over 23 years of experience in the health care industry. As a Chief Financial and Operating Officer, he provides guidance and support for COA practices in the critical areas of administration, purchasing, billing, and practice management. The ability to benchmark operations and finances is a critical part of the payment reform models proposed by COA and which many practices are adopting.

Ricky is the Director of Cancer Specialists of Tidewater, Ltd (CST). Prior to joining the practice he was a CPA with the public accounting firm of Failes & Associates, where he spent many years helping physicians negotiate compensation contracts, benchmarking financial data, and using that data to help practices become more efficient.

Mr. Newton also created the AnalyzeIt software that breaks down costs from a practice’s income statement into the costs per CPT code. This allows practices to look at the cost of treating patients in various regimens verses what would be reimbursed for all services including the drugs, labs, and services.
