Health system leaders interested in rolling out a PSHP should be aware of the following considerations:
- Start with a clear sense of the outlook for the PSHP.
- Know the steps to take to ensure the success of such an effort.
- Recognize that the capabilities and competencies needed to start a PSHP are significant, and that they often fall outside healthcare leaders’ traditional skill sets and the organization’s cultural predisposition.
- Understand substantial investments in capital and talent acquisition, data analytics capabilities and care management are required, as well as the structural changes to align interests equitably on the payer and provider side.
