Healthcare organizations cannot deliver on the imperatives to improve quality, reduce costs, and grow market share without resolving legacy physician challenges such as opposing agendas, lack of strategic alignment, low trust, and conflict. Our Physician-Hospital Alignment practice provides solutions to optimize the performance of private practice and employed physician groups, service lines, the hospital, and healthcare system by aligning the interests of physicians, hospitals, and patients.
We worked with [Chartis Clinical Quality Solutions] to develop highly strategic co-management agreements across three of our most important service lines: neurosurgery, cardiology (employed) and orthopedics. In each case, [Chartis Clinical Quality] and a trusted law firm facilitated an exceptionally effective interest-based negotiation process between the physicians and Baptist Memorial, ultimately producing legally compliant agreements that now bring great value to our system, increase physician satisfaction, and turn conflict into true partnering. ”
