Summary

A decade ago, UK HealthCare recognized the need to reposition itself as a regional referral center, focusing on advanced subspecialty care for the entire state of Kentucky. The goal was to become a "medical destination" for patients from that region who needed access to specialized care.

To support that goal, UK HealthCare established a virtual network of partnering provider organizations throughout Kentucky. By working together, UK HealthCare and its partners provide all Kentuckians access to the appropriate levels of care as close to home as possible.

Clinical Co-Management: A Bridge to Clinical Integration and Pathway to Bundled Payments supplies a detailed view of the Clinical Co-Management Agreement (CCMA) framework. It describes how the successful implementation of CCMAs can pave the way to coordinated efforts by hospital administration and physicians to reduce cost, increase quality, and improve patient satisfaction.

Detailing why CCMAs present a viable alternative to conventional hospital-physician alignment models, such as medical directorships, committee chairs, and physician employment, the book presents an insider's view of the working models for clinical co-management programs.

Complete with a detailed explanation of the self-referral statute (Stark Law) and the Anti-Kickback Statute, this book provides physicians, hospital executives, healthcare attorneys, and industry experts with a trustworthy reference they can refer to prior to and during CCMA negotiations, implementation, and oversight.

Includes a Foreword by Mark D. Birdwhistell, Vice-President for Administration and External Affairs, UK HealthCare
