Reaching Organizational Excellence: A Proven Process for Medical Groups

ABSTRACT: Today numerous health systems find themselves managing complex medical groups, among which the most complex are the Service Lines. Physicians whose specialties are within the Service Lines (Cardiovascular, Orthopedics, Oncology or Women’s Services) find that their clinical work is performed in the hospital settings, yet their governance and decision-making processes often are made within the medical group structure. Frequently, this structure creates misalignment and competing interest, resulting in internal conflict for a health system.   In this white paper, you will find the steps to overcome these struggles while gaining knowledge from first-hand experiences with a Cardiovascular medical group, which is outlined in a case study highlighting how RoundTable was able to combat these concerns and solidify solutions for a successful outcome.   PROBLEM STATEMENT: Structure within complex medical groups is competing with that found in parent health systems.  With specific specialty service lines needing its own governance and organizational processes, they are struggling with the development and [...]

Service Line Management Structure Defining Steps: Challenging The Status Quo

Multi-hospital health systems are commonplace today. In fact, 69.7% of all U.S. hospitals are part of a system.  Furthermore, 91.6% of all hospital discharges occurred in a multi-hospital system according to the AHRQ Compendium of US Health Systems-2017.  Many of these systems stretch the U.S. -- some may be regional in nature crossing state lines while a smaller percentage dominate a single state.  The complexity of a multi-hospital system is staggering.  The countless medical groups of all subspecialties, the sheer number of leaders, the variety of delivery methods/ clinical protocols, and regional nuances, drive variation in cost and quality across the spectrum.  In an effort to minimize the variety and delivery of the same standards in exceptional care, and to hold the similar cost structure; the most successful multi-hospital health systems have adopted a Service Line Management philosophy.  Simply put, Service Line Management within a health system, organizes around clinical disease states for all hospitals, across all [...]
