10:15 – 11:45 am – Physician-Hospital Integration in the 21st Century
The relationship between hospitals and their medical staffs has changed throughout the years from independence to interdependence.  The current economic environment and healthcare reform have caused a reassessment of physician-hospital integration models.  Healthcare reform promotes an expectation that better coordination of care will improve patient outcomes and community health status.

With the movement away from fee-for-service payment and toward provider integration, there is the belief that better coordination of care will slow healthcare costs by reducing duplication of services, hospital readmissions and inappropriate
use of the emergency department. Strategies to integrate physician and hospital interests are a necessary component of providing quality care and achieving economic goals for both parties.  The degree of integration varies from minimal to
full integration or full employment. This program explores physician-hospital integration models and opportunities and challenges in developing successful models.
