Bridging the Chasm Between Fee-for-Service and Population Health

March 13, 2015

Healthcare leaders agree on the logic behind population health: that the focus of a care delivery system should be on keeping patient populations healthy rather than waiting to treat illness. Yet transitioning away from single-patient, episodic care is a major economic and organizational challenge for hospitals and health systems. They must revamp the roles of physicians, midlevels, and care team providers; implement data analytics solutions and learn to incorporate the findings; negotiate risk-based payment agreements with payers and partners—all at the same time. The magnitude of change, and the risk of getting it wrong, is enormous. At this Roundtable, three top accountable care organization executives discussed the challenges of engineering changes in systems of care to enable the shift toward data-assisted evidence-based practice, a culture of wellness, and, for healthcare organizations, to ensure sustainable finances.

Physician Leadership Development for a Changing Industry

March 9, 2015

The role of physicians is changing dramatically. Physicians today are being called on to help lead healthcare organizations through major changes that will impact patient care, cost, and outcomes, as well as be accountable for the business of healthcare. As clinical care becomes entwined with financial results, the chief medical officer is responsible for better results at the bedside and on the balance sheet. Because business skills are not taught in medical school, hospitals and health systems are filling the void with rigorous leadership programs that prepare doctors for this critical new path. HealthLeaders Media recently convened four C-suite executives to discuss the key factors in identifying and developing physician leaders who will be effective in helping healthcare make the leap to value-based care and population health management.
