Physician Growth Strategy Header

Primary Care is the “evergreen” strategy – one that prospers in a Fee-for-Service or Fee-for-Value market, and one that ensures continued operational and financial sustainability through the attraction and retention of patient lives.  An investment in a strong primary care base for a multi-hospital/multi-region health system can: 

  • Drive market capture, especially in growing markets with immature healthcare resources  
  • Provide a mechanism for patient access and begin their experience with the THS brand  
  • Provide a mechanism for patient retention and direction within THS’s network of services  
  • Catalyze the system’s efforts to expand regionally, especially into markets where primary care appears to be a more critical part of health system strategy  
  • Insulate the organization from the risk of acquisition or alignment of independent Primary Care resources by competition or other groups rolling up provider resources who may look to more tightly manage patient utilization of the care continuum.  
  • Be a critical component of addressing value-based care dynamics and inevitable payer pressure to assign/manage lives and manage cost  
  • Be a critical component of taking advantage of opportunities in risk contracting space  
  • Supports systemness, providing the vehicle for patient retention and referral throughout a system’s resources, agnostic of hospital market and focused on system retention
