About This Blog
Welcome to the Marketing and Planning Leadership Council’s blog, Service Line Transformation. This blog serves as the primary communication channel for our Service Line Transformation Initiative, a special multi-year research effort dedicated to helping organizations prepare key service lines for risk-based payment. We will address challenges ranging from growth strategy innovations for key services lines to chronic care strategy, service line leadership, innovative approaches to service line marketing, and more.
For more information on the Service Line Transformation Initiative, or to send us questions, comments, or leads on innovative service line and care delivery models, please email Rachel Reeves.
Worksite clinics are a significant focus of our research for the 2012 Marketing and Planning Leadership Council national meeting series, which will launch this spring.
Staging for accountable payment structures
Most health systems are not making margins on these worksite clinics; rather, they expect to benefit from improved patient recruitment and retention within the employee base. Additionally, the worksite clinic model provides an opportunity to prepare for accountable payment structures—or reap savings achieved for the employee base where such structures already exist—improving system readiness for coming changes.
