Focusing on finding the best healthcare outcomes
Placeholder Image
Recently, I attended the Congress on Healthcare Leadership presented by the American College of Healthcare Executives, and I was most impressed by one presentation: Building the New Healthcare Delivery System. In particular, I was struck by the fact that healthcare executives from across the country were focused almost exclusively on this new world of healthcare and its impact on how the organizations they lead are designed. Today, we are experiencing a national healthcare system that is rapidly changing from a fee-for-service environment in which you or your insurance company pay for services received, to one where payments are based on quality outcomes; where managing the health of a community or defined population is incentivized.
