Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association Sponsored Webinar – Driving Provider Networks Towards High Performance

HSG was fortunate to present a Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association (MHA) Educational Session in February 2022 to a very engaged audience, predominantly of Northeast Health System executives. We are grateful to MHA for the opportunity and look forward to partnering with their organization again in the future.

February 2022 Webinar Abstract

2022 is an ideal time to evolve provider networks from a group of independent practices/service lines into a cohesive, culturally and strategically-aligned multispecialty group. In this webinar, healthcare leaders will discuss how to overcome frequent gaps in health system and network integration and review the key capabilities networks must develop to create long-term financial and operational success.

Travis Ansel and Dr. Terry McWilliams, co-authors of Health Administration Press’ Employed Physician Networks: A Guide to Building Strategic Advantage, Value, and Financial Sustainability, will facilitate this 30-minute webinar. Their focus will be on diagnosing physician network challenges and building plans of action to address those challenges.

Dr. Terry McWilliams, HSG Chief Clinical Consultant

Terry’s professional career started in the Navy as the result of a medical school scholarship program. He intended to leave the Navy as soon as he was eligible but ended up staying for more than 20 years due to the full scope of clinical practice experience. His Naval career afforded the opportunity to practice in many environments, including remote locations, and to experience progressive clinical administration responsibilities, including leading multi-specialty clinical operations and physician-hospital alignment initiatives.

As CMO, he supervised the Medical Staff Services Office and was additionally responsible for quality of care/patient safety/risk management, clinical information systems, physician recruitment, and clinical service line development. At the system level, he was involved in creating system-wide medical staff bylaws, spearheading various clinical IT projects, and contributing to broad-based performance improvement efforts.

Terry received his medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and completed family medicine residency in the Navy. He completed a Master of Science in Jurisprudence in Hospital and Health Law from Seton Hall University School of Law in 2015 and has since gained additional proficiency in patient centered care delivery models and population health management from Jefferson University
