Health care is rapidly changing. As a national leader in health care, we must redefine the way we deliver it to our communities. We are moving beyond a service line approach to care. Today, our focus turns toward greater transparency and use of data to bring innovation and less variation to evidence-based medicine. We can improve patient outcomes and experiences, while also reducing expenses.
The five key components for how the future of care will be transformed include: clinical excellence, quality, a highly-reliable experience, value, physician engagement and connectivity, and innovation which supports education. Precision medicine and a multidisciplinary approach will allow our physicians to drive the delivery of patient care, transforming from a fee-for-service to valued-based care model. Value in turn leads to new payment models, such as our accountable care organization and opportunities for payment bundling. We will begin with a focus on Cardiovascular, Neuroscience, Behavioral Health and Cancer, with future areas of interest to include Children’s and Orthopedics.
The successful implementation of our model depends on the best team of physicians, clinicians, team member support, and partnerships. The approach will be driven by shared physician and hospital goals, performance measurement and transparency around quality, outcomes and cost data, and physician involvement in decision-making and improving value in their respective clinical areas of expertise.
