System Integration Services
It is not a secret that our current healthcare system is not sustainable in its present form. We are experiencing first hand different models of integration and partnerships -- horizontal and vertical -- that aim to transform how healthcare is accessed and delivered by and to the growing and aging U.S. population. Integrated health systems are considered at least in part a solution to the challenge of sustainability and have been a significant driver of how the hospital environment has changed over the last decade.
Health System Integration Services
There is a wide spectrum of models and options for effective Health system integration. Literature suggests, and our experience supports the following core principles for successful integration:
- Patient / Consumer focus
- Comprehensive services across the continuum of care
- Expanded Geographic Coverage
- Standardization of Care (interprofessional teams)
- Organizational Culture and Leadership
- Performance Management
- Financial Management
- Information Systems
- Physician Alignment & Integration
Alfa Healthcare Group and our team of executive-level professionals has compiled a significant amount of experience and deep knowledge with large and mid-size hospital system formations and integration.
