Service Lines Strategies Workshop: Cardiovascular Physician Alignment
Boost your bottom line, drive quality improvement, and improve patient throughput with the employed physician model for your cardiovascular service line.
Listen to HealthLeaders Media for this solution-focused 90-minute webcast of this proven physician alignment model in the cardiovascular service line. Our speakers developed and founded Allina's Minneapolis Heart Institute, which involved the creation of a hospital-within-a-hospital, managed equally between hospital senior leaders and the physicians who are employed there.
Our expert speakers explore the operational requirements and secrets of success with a real-world example that hospitals of all sizes can replicate, including ways to:
- Structure a service line that partners with employed physicians, rather than directs them.
- Develop a shared system of responsibilities between physicians and administrators.
- Build a board that effectively represents the shared interests of both physicians and management and discover how to build a hospital-within-a-hospital or, for smaller hospitals, a self-governing and policing structure that complements the strategic goals of the organization, including bottom-line results.
- Attractiveness of employee model versus contract model
- Co-management model and total independent model
- Stark IV concerns driving value of employed model
- Minneapolis Heart Institute
- Founding goals
- Cardiovascular services division board structure for Allina, Abbott Northwestern Hospital and MHI
- Portability of this model to other hospitals
- Engendering “ownership” stake with employed physicians, including physician incentives for financial performance
- Managing to the bottom line
- Physician responsibilities for contribution margin
