Navigant Healthcare Quoted in Hospitals & Health Networks
Navigant expert, Dennis Butts featured in Hospital & Health System Networks article titled, “Physicians Pilot Population Health Effort in Michigan”. Ascension and CHE Trinity are collaborating around a clinically integrated network in hopes of advancing population health and new models of care. According to Dennis, “Such clinical collaborations between competing health systems are scarce, but growing in number.
Many networks are beginning to strategize how they fill gaps, and some are reaching the conclusion that historical competitors, in a fee-for-service world, are maybe partners in a value-based payment world, and so they’re considering these types of multisystem networks in order to be successful.” Dennis expects the number of clinically integrated networks to swell in the next year, as systems add touch points and care continuum sites to their arsenal, without having to pay the capital costs to build them.
