Physician Integration - Whether it be Clinical or Otherwise: Perhaps it is Time to Focus on the Physicians
Paul DeMuro and Tom Curtis co-authored “Physician Integration - Whether it be Clinical or Otherwise: Perhaps it is Time to Focus on the Physicians,” which was published in the South Florida Hospital News and Healthcare Report.
In the article, Paul and Tom explore ways in which healthcare organizations should strive to prioritize physicians in order to deliver high quality care to patients. They suggest which key performance indicators data collection and measuring systems should track in order to determine physician and clinical integration effectiveness. They also argue that data tracking systems should be designed for each health system’s unique patient population, and that physicians should be made fully aware of what data is being collected and why. The article was co-authored by Richard Klass, President of 2CY, Inc.
