What’s Next? Emerging Models for Hospital/Physician Alignment

Physician organizations and health systems are under renewed pressure to come together to build economies of scale, align incentives, and share risk. To attract and manage physicians, health systems need to offer a variety of compelling structural options, develop high-performing physician management capabilities, integrate clinical services across the continuum of care, and effectively manage risk within shared contracts. This presentation explores a range of options for success in these endeavors, including physician employment, medical foundations, hospital-affiliated group practices, clinically integrated physician networks, physician hospital organizations, medical group joint ventures, comanagement agreements, and management services organizations.
