The business of clinical integration: payment models, structures, governance, strategic issues & more
Accountable care and value-based purchasing activity continues to blossom in the commercial market, perhaps potentially having as significant an impact than under Medicare and other public programs. Increasing and enhancing clinical integration has been considered a key factor for success for provider organizations positioning themselves in this regard.

Moreover, a number of health care organizations that have decided not to pursue an ACO are still strategically aligning themselves for clinical integration, due to a variety of other evolving factors including changes in physician-hospital relationships, other payment models, facilitation of EHR capabilities, opportunities to improve delivery of care, and marketplace forces.

Clinical integration involves a structured collaboration among physicians and hospitals under an active and ongoing program designed to improve the quality and efficiency of health care. Such initiatives leverage clinical teaming between facilities and physicians, and among physicians; positioning the organization with the agility to respond to quickly changing market and clinical requirements and opportunities. Such organizations require the connectivity across the delivery system to provide true care coordination and convenience, and the ability to demonstrate value and outcomes to all key stakeholders.

Join nationally renowned experts Doug Hastings, Chairman of Epstein, Becker & Green, and Doctor Mark Browne, Principal of Pershing Yoakley & Associates, as they construct the foundation of business considerations for health care organizations in pursuit of clinical integration. This session will address payment models, structures, governance, strategic issues and more, for organizations seeking: to manage populations and patients based on a culture of patient focused “Clinical Teaming”; utilizing systems and data which enable seamless coordination and continuity-of-care; and optimization of applicable incentives.
