The current relationship between hospitals and physicians has been built around rewarding volume of services - not quality. That model is breaking down as reformers in Washington D.C. have hospital and physician inefficiency in their sights, with Medicare pushing toward value-based purchasing and experimenting with a payment system that rewards a system of coordinated care.
In this report, four leading hospital systems Gundersen Lutheran Health System, Sanford Health-MeritCare, SSM Health Care and Virginia Mason Medical Center share the lessons they have learned to help them:
- Build physician input into the highest levels of the organization
- Get physicians and administrative leaders to use the same language
- Use more than one physician model toward the same goal
- Start the steps to sharing risk, and rewards for quality of care
