Physician AlignmentAligning the goals of the Hospital and Provider
Health systems and physicians have a unique relationship. Physicians make decisions regarding patient care, which impacts the financial viability of the health system. Physicians look to provide optimal care and often resent hospital-generated guidelines they were not a party to creating which seem to impact care by reducing costs. Thus, a conundrum is created: aligning the goals and aspirations of both the health system and providers to create sustainable programs to enhance patient outcomes while improving financial performance.
