HSG has partnered with the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) and Health Administration Press (HAP) to leverage our insights from 20+ years of helping hospitals with employed physician networks to build this resource for management teams looking to improve their performance.
Employed Physician Networks represents your best opportunity to effectively manage the health of populations and navigate risk contracting. In this resource, readers are guided through the process with many practical tools and tips…a great resource as you strive to build an engaged, high performing physician network.
A strong, integrated physician group is essential for any healthcare organization looking to improve patient care within its health system and throughout its community. Equip yourself with the skills, knowledge, and tools you need to turn your organization’s employed physician network into a strategic asset.
Employed Physician Networks: A Guide to Building Strategic Advantage, Value, and Financial Sustainability offers a clear framework for a network’s growth—from the Novice phase through the High-Performing phase—and it highlights the key elements that contribute to a successful evolution to high performance. With this book, healthcare leaders will be able to pinpoint their network’s current phase and then apply practical advice and recommendations for priorities that will likely need to be addressed for the organization and network to progress through the more advanced phases. Case studies, best practices, concrete examples, sidebars, and checklists help leaders put their plans into action. Ultimately, executives and organizations will be able to build employed physician networks that reliably manage quality, cost, and access.
The book includes valuable information about interactions with private physicians and the creation of relevant metrics and dashboards. Fully informed about success factors, barriers, and the predictable phases of evolution and growth, healthcare leaders can initiate a plan of action that will have a significant impact on a health system’s long-term success while at the same time improving patient care in their communities.
“This book is designed to help all individuals associated with an employed physician network understand where the network is in its maturation process and how to catalyze its advancement – while avoiding well-intended actions that predictably might be detrimental. The suggested framework provides an objective means to conduct an introspective analysis of the network’s strengths and opportunities and prioritize which opportunities should be elevated for action plan development. Try it – it works.”
