Hospitals & Physicians
Convergence, consolidation & transformation.
While the rapid consolidation of hospitals and physician organizations marks a major healthcare narrative, the complete is story more complex. Fast-growing hospital systems are transforming into health systems at the same time that traditional payment and care models are undergoing fundamental overhauls. More healthcare providers of all sorts and sizes are striving to deliver higher quality care in the most efficient way possible. These drivers are fueling the development of truly integrated delivery systems while sparking a range of challenges to organizational structures and strategy, as well as to boards, leadership teams and workforces. Consolidation is removing layers of leadership from newly combined organizations while driving the need for more strategic, comprehensive and different leadership capabilities deeper into the management ranks. Patient-centric care, preventative approaches and population health advancements require new strategies. If they are to succeed, these strategies absolutely require new organizational cultures, new behaviors from clinical and operational workforces, and new board-governance capabilities.
