As healthcare reform intensifies efforts to improve care delivery and value, physician-hospital alignment has never been more strategically important.  Healthcare organizations need physicians not just to accommodate change but to lead change as care delivery is transformed. Meanwhile, incentive schemes are in flux, with effectiveness metrics starting to replace productivity goals, making physician engagement just as important as alignment of incentives.

Find out how healthcare leaders are approaching physician alignment, and get answers to key strategic questions, such as:

  • How is UnityPoint Health successfully developing physician leadership skills by utilizing a Physician Leadership Academy?
  • How are savvy organizations preparing for closer relationships with payers by modifying their goals and performance objectives, giving special attention to protocols that ensure efficient and predictable care?
  • How has Providence Health & Services strengthened alignment by expanding its hospitalist program to address the acute care needs of primary care physicians and providing tools such as integrated care management solutions?
  • How did Covenant Health drive alignment by creating a series of service lines, each of which takes into account physician engagement and needs assessment, business and clinical analytics, financial and clinical quality performance, evidence-based practice, and employed physician performance and compensation?
  • Why are improved clinical outcomes becoming as vital a concern as cost and efficiency? 
  • How does healthcare reform—the switch to value-based purchasing and the need to share risk—make effective physician alignment a strategic imperative?
