Does Your Physician Engagement Strategy Need a Check-Up? Rethinking Success Through Outcomes
To successfully transition to value-based care, health systems must engage their physicians in the process. It’s simply not optional. But figuring out the most effective way to engage physicians has remained one of the toughest challenges for organizations. Why? Because physicians drive the bulk of utilization decisions that influence health outcomes, their buy-in is critical for transforming care delivery—but healthcare organizations also need more than just buy-in. They need results.
Success in this new model requires physicians to adapt to a new way of practicing medicine, as well as to adjust to a new compensation model that rewards clinicians for providing high-quality care and containing costs, rather than on the volume of care provided. That’s a lot of change at one time.
That’s why our new white paper provides a comprehensive analysis of not only the obstacles to engaging physicians but also the strategies that have proven successful for partnering with physicians to improve outcomes at health systems across the country.
