Ten Reasons Why the PA Clinical Network can boost the clinical and business success of independent Pennsylvania physicians.
Physician-owned Clinically Integrated Networks give physicians access to new revenue that is linked to quality and value.
Fewer Middlemen, More Co-Equal Partners
Businesses are eager to work directly with local doctors and insurers want to develop less antagonistic relationships with their physicians. Once physicians use strength in numbers form a network, they can come to that negotiating table as equals.
Control of the Quality Agenda
Frontline physicians’ insights into what really matters to their patients has been underappreciated. New quality metrics are being developed, and now’s the time for doctor input into measuring what really matters.
Smart Risk Arrangements
Being accountable for healthcare costs means also being able to share in any savings. Knowing which risk to accept and how to successfully manage it translates into additional physician income.
Being Independent Doesn’t Mean Being Alone
As physicians pool their expertise with likeminded colleagues, they can scale their knowledge and energy without having to give up any autonomy.
Interdependence Without Being Anti-competitive
Time, Income and Patients
By having greater oversight of healthcare quality and utilization, physicians can strategically control how much time they want to devote to how much revenue for how many patients.
Health Insurers Want to Work With Us
It’s Time to Stop Running from Problems and Start Running toward Solutions
Some independent physicians are still turning to employment because they see no other alternatives. Clinically integrated networks have a track record of not only preserving independent practice, but helping it thrive.
The mastery of patient care is a missing ingredient in the search for healthcare value. Physician-led clinically integrated networks foster that mastery in order to succeed.
