Physician Alignment: The Collaborative Care Disconnect

"The biggest challenge from both sides is understanding the future. We are taking on specialists whose incomes are dropping. If their reimbursements go down and you’re not the employer, they can’t blame you. If you hire them and insist they be paid at a market rate, for better or worse, you become the bad guy."
Michael Rowan, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Catholic Health Initiatives, Englewood, CO, and Report Advisor

This exclusive, original research and analysis offers key insight from top healthcare executives and clinical leaders, including:

  • 79% of leaders say physicians’ support of collaborative care is mixed or unsure
  • 71% say their organization will participate in a collaborative care model
  • Only 36% feel physicians have a “major” influence in their organization’s decision to participate in collaborative care model
  • And 53% say collaborative care models will strain hospital-physician relations
