The New Physician Network Advantage, Part 1: Redefining the Network’s Purpose
The first in a two-part series focused on physician network strategy, this presentation unpacks why health systems must redefine the network’s purpose, what health systems need from their physician networks, and how best to achieve those objectives.
In recent years, physician networks have focused primarily on growing market share, improving quality, and preparing for population health. Today’s networks, however, must simultaneously accomplish several different goals—and manage inherent tensions along the way:
- Grow geographic footprint while more selectively curating membership based on performance
- Prepare for population health by focusing on care management while also embracing the demands of high-deductible patients focused on price
- Continue to improve clinical quality while also building a more reliable service experience
This presentation explores how to effectively segment physicians across the network and instill a clear sense of individual purpose to help physicians in the network better advance system strategy.
Things You’ll Learn:
- How new imperatives such as rising consumerism and MACRA affect health systems’ approach to physician alignment
- No-regrets investments for the physician network
- How to take a segmented, rather than monolithic, approach to network deployment
