Assessing the Situation
Sponsored by Value Project: Physician Engagement & Alignment
A successful physician strategy is built upon an understanding of:
- Perspectives of the health system seeking to develop or refine its physician strategy
- Perspectives of the medical group and physician practices (both employed and independent) with which the health system seeks to engage
- Relevant market conditions
As a starting point, it is important to understand the perspectives of both health systems and medical groups (employed and independent). Both perspectives are important, and although they share certain common goals, they are not the same.
