The current climate of consolidation has created a crowded environment for health systems operating multiple hospitals and facilities within close geographic proximity. Though these facilities are technically connected through a single health system, they frequently provide overlapping clinical services with little or no coordination or sharing of best practices. However, by managing service lines at a regional level and aligning with physicians through shared service-line control, fragmented facilities can transform into a true system capable of managing the health of a population. This article discusses how aligning physicians through regionalization strategies can enable more effective coordination of care, reduce redundancies, optimize resources, and improve patient outcomes.
