    • Agenda Drivers of Change Creating a Culture of Engagement Beyond First Generation Alignment Strategies Case Studies: What’s Working and Why? Strategies for Success 2
    • Overview  Health Reform – not “if” but “when”  Primary Care/Prevention  Quality/Efficiency  IT/EMR  Bundled payments  Maximizing Plan A While Moving to Plan B – knowing where to start How effective is your organization today?  Leadership How prepared are you for changing incentives?  Quality  Information Technology  Care Coordination  Case Studies – what’s working and why  Strategies for Success – what’s the end game  Specific strategies for L, Q, IT and CC  Measures and Metrics for each 3
    • Drivers of Change 4
    • A Roadmap to Reform Most of President Obama’s Ambitious Healthcare Goals Depend on Bending the Cost Curve Causal Relationship Between the President’s Healthcare Goals Catalyst Primary Outcome Secondary Outcome Tertiary Outcome Maintain Protect Coverage Families from During Job Medical Reduce Cost Assure Transitions Bankruptcy Growth Affordable Coverage End Barriers Guarantee for Pre- Choice of Existing Docs and Conditions Health Plans Invest in Improve Prevention Safety and and Wellness Patient Care Source: 1) HFMA Regulatory Sound Bites and http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/health_care/ 5
    • Organization and Payment Methods Global payment per enrollee Outcome measures Global DRG case Continuum of Payment Bundling rate, hospital, and post-acute care Global DRG case Care rate, hospital only coordination and intermediate Global fee for outcome primary care measures Blended fee-for- service/medical home fee Simple process and structure measures Fee-for-service Independent Primary care Hospital systems Integrated physician group practices delivery systems practices and hospitals Continuum of Organization Source: The Path to a High Performance U.S. Health System: A 2020 Vision and the Policies to Pave the Way, February 2009. 6
    • Implications for Hospitals If enacted, the proposed reforms will have a significant impact on how hospitals operate Key Action Steps  Examine existing processes to identify those that should be re-engineered to take advantage of EHRs  Evaluate performance on current quality measures and begin a campaign to improve them  Embark on sustained cost reduction efforts  Use scenario planning when making capital budgeting decisions  Convene a high level work group to discuss how your organization’s business model will have to change if these proposals become law 7
    • Physician Alignment: Integration Imperative Physician IT Physician Bundled Alignment Connectivity Consolidation Payment Infrastructure  New physicians  Physicians want  As physician  The advent of more likely to look EMR/IT groups get larger, bundled payment for established connectivity they become will require tighter group practice targets for alignment with models  Hospitals may join hospital physicians networks to gain acquisition by  Hospitals without access to IT competing  Hospitals may such structures infrastructure or to systems need to join may need to tap communicate with networks who are into expertise of physicians who  Hospitals may more aligned with systems who are already need to join their physicians to have structure ―locked in‖ to networks to not be excluded another network’s ensure they aren’t from payment system frozen out of stream referral stream 8
    • Creating a Culture of Engagement 9
    • Alignment: How Ready Are You? Assuming hospital physician alignment is as important as ever, are you ready? Cultural Structural Readiness + Readiness What is it? What is it? An organizational Building blocks that personality that will are necessary to effectively support undertake the new alignment that is planning required in today’s world 10
    • What Management Can Do… Practice what Build respect among senior executives you preach Be role model Mentor your directors and managers Clarify Thin line between front-line empowerment and responsibilities interference Promise only what you can Collective memory embarrasses elephants deliver 11
    • Beyond First Generation Alignment Strategies 12
    • First Generation Focus: What strategies are being used to strengthen physician-hospital alignment, & which strategies are most effective? Hospital Perspective Physician Perspective  Healthcare Strategy and Market  ACPE survey of 10,000 Development (SHSMD) survey members of 3,000 members  400+ respondents  362 respondents  15 interviews  60+ interviews Source: Noblis/AHA, Strategies for Strengthening Physician-Hospital Alignment: A National Study, 2006; ACPE Member Survey 2008 13
    • 2005 Noblis National Study Key Findings Infrastructure Substantive Physician improvements to increase efficiency/ involvement in leadership accessibility of care decision making development Support for High quality/safe physician practice patient care growth Interrelated Strategies Selective alignment Information systems of economic interests Communication … Positive Visibility/ accessibility of Openness… organizational CEO/Senior Trust…Respect culture Management 14
    • Noblis’ 2005 Physician-Hospital Alignment Study  Physicians are going to be either collaborative partners or active competitors. Key  Decreasing physician reimbursement causing physicians to spend more time in office Alignment and/or competing with the hospital for ancillary services. Findings  Of the 10 most effective strategies, half involved employing physicians. % Respondents Ranking as Highly Effective 1) Employ intensivists 75% 2) Employ a vice president of medical affairs (or equivalent leader) 74% 3) Employ hospitalists 74% 4) Provide financial support for recruitment to independent practices 72% Ten 5) Sponsor retreats limited to physician leadership and senior management 70% Most 6) Have a formal physician relations program with professional staff responsible for 68% Effective spending time with active medical staff members and their office staffs in an effort to Alignment strengthen physician-hospital relationships Strategies 7) Sponsor planning retreats that include board members, physicians, and senior management 68% 8) Actively involve physicians in planning and developing clinical service lines or centers of 66% excellence 9) Employ primary care physicians 65% 10) Employ some office-based specialists 64% 15

    • The Alignment Balancing Act: Maximizing Plan A While Moving to Plan B 18
    • Four Common Elements of an Integrated Health System Hospital and medical staff leadership jointly invested Leadership in having a dynamic structure and relationship. Information Technology High prevalence of information technology facilitates aligned goals and objectives. Quality Aligned goals and objectives enable a uniform focus on quality improvement. Care Coordination Patient care coordination across care continuum. 19
    • Together, These Four Elements Create the Foundation for an Evolved Medical Staff Leadership Quality Care Information Coordination Technology 20
    • Hospician: Clinical and Business Integration* Solving the case of the disappearing doctor  Fully aligned goals  Fully aligned incentives  Fully shared risk  Entity contracting for all  Full clinical integration  Referrals within system Balance between over- organization & autonomy  Clinical protocols  Integrated information system *Quote from Dr. Joel Reich at ECHN BOT Retreat, April 2009 21
    • Case Studies – What’s Working and Why? 22
    • Successful Integration Models  There is no one model that guarantees success in hospital-physician integration.  Examples will show a diversity of models used by organizations that have achieved longevity and fame/eminence in the industry.  In most cases, the model has evolved over time to meet changing needs.  By and large, the tighter the economic integration of the model, the more flexibility in negotiating in the managed care arena and the greater chance for survival in a highly competitive market with strong payers and strong players. 23
    • Geisinger Health System – The Current “Gold Standard” Overview Open and highly integrated delivery system – hospitals, clinics, health plan, and affiliated rehab clinic. Market Structure  22 clinical service lines are co- Competitiveness “Thermometer” led by a physician – More Competitive administrator pair.  Each operating unit has its own quality and budget targets tied to system objectives.

    • Could it be done at the national level? Making these principles work in integrated systems like Geisinger and others which typically are nonprofit, pay their doctors' salaries and have the flexibility to divert resources into areas such as primary care where they’re most needed is one thing. Translating them to The New Face of Health Care the fragmented, mainly fee-for- service and for-profit system A new system rewards doctors and hospitals for elsewhere is another. taking better care of patients at lower costs.

    • Making it Work for You How ready is your organization to implement these strategies? What are the major opportunities and barriers to implementation? What do you think the impact of the economic crisis and/or health reform will have on implementing alignment strategies? 36
    • Strategies for Success – What’s the End Game? 37
    • What more can we do to…  Involve physicians and increase trust in hospital?  Develop physician leadership and engage in governance?  Increase effective communication among and between physicians and hospital leadership?  Engage physicians in strategic planning and thinking?  Enhance physician liaison activities?  Further enable hospital based physicians to effectively manage patient care?  Link additional care providers, e.g., HIE, etc.?  Increase collaboration in quality initiatives? 38
    • Remember the 7 Ss: Tom Peters and Bob Waterman, In Search of Excellence Deeply involve physicians in developing Strategy and executing the strategic plan for their enterprise. Unify the physicians, incorporate service lines, and forget Structure “groupness”. Identify financial flows, get real about transparency, align to Systems clinical and management standards and guidelines.
