Through healthcare reform, payment modifications, transparency, and a renewed focus on value, the healthcare industry is changing its organizational structure from one of a multitude of individual entities to one of a system-of-care model. This restructuring and subsequent alignment of information presents new risks and opportunities for physicians, hospitals, and other healthcare providers.
Emphasizing effective interactions between physicians and the health system, Physician Alignment: Constructing Viable Roadmaps for the Future examines the different ways physicians and hospitals can create systems to not only survive, but thrive through the changes facing healthcare. It draws on experienced authors in the area of physician purchasing to explain the various integrative models for physicians and hospitals.
Explaining how these systems should be constructed and aligned, the book provides healthcare organizations with a roadmap for planning for the future. The book concludes with a chapter on accountable care organizations and patient-centered medical homes that moves from the conceptual to administrative embodiments of the principles of an integrated health system as we now know it.
