Reaffirming the Medical Group’s Value to the Health System
Two forces have defined medical group strategy across the last five years: rapid growth and uncertainty around reform. The medical group must determine its role in delivery of value-based care as many groups grow to scale and payment reform drives system investment in the outpatient enterprise.
This report will examine the key trends shaping the future of the medical group and how our value proposition will be defined as part of an integrated health system. Key issues to be addressed include:
- Impact of key trends—demographics, reimbursement, and payment reform
- Role of the medical group in the health care value chain
- Enfranchising system executives and board members in a broader definition of medical group value
10:30 am The Information-Driven Medical Group
Creating the New Medical Group Dashboard to Improve the Total Value of Care
The successful creation of a culture that espouses evidence-based management is dependent on information across all performance dimensions, including the availability and communication of the right type of data.
This presentation will highlight examples of best-in-class approaches to dashboards across all aspects of medical group performance and how high-performing medical groups respond efficiently and effectively to variances in the underlying data. Key issues to be addressed include:
- Defining actionable metrics to drive clinical, financial and operational performance
- Aligning health system and medical group performance measurement
- Hardwired response mechanisms to performance variance

Positioning the Medical Group to Prosper in the New Health Care Economy
As the center of gravity of the health system begins to shift away from the inpatient enterprise to the ambulatory network, many medical groups are struggling to define their role and answer a critical question: how does the medical group position itself to deliver maximum value to the health system, physicians, and patients?
This presentation will provide documented strategies for clarifying and codifying the structure, role, and value proposition of the medical group within a collaborative care enterprise. In particular, we will discuss what is required from the group’s “corporate infrastructure”—governance, provider recruitment and retention strategy, leadership, and organizational structure, strategic planning—in order to prosper in today’s fee-for-service environment and prepare for a value-based future. Key issues to be addressed include:
- Aligning strategic objectives of the medical group with health system goals
- Best practice governance, management and leadership models to foster system integration
- The future medical group service portfolio
