       Strategies for Successful Hospital/Physician Alignment
                            By Darin E. Libby & John N. Fink
               Both Senior Managers at ECG Management Consultants, Inc.

Summary:
With the nation sitting on the advent of the first major healthc are legislation in decades and the
effects of a very poor economy playing havoc with their balance sheets, healthcare providers
have come to realize that the game is changing and they will need to consider a new paradigm in
order to survive. One apparent outcome of these new challenges is greater int egration of
hospitals and physicians to improve care coordination and efficiency and meet the needs of their
patients. Hospitals that are not pursuing physician alignment strategies are becomi ng increasing
vulnerable to physician instability in this turbulent healt hcare environment. While California’s
current corporat e practice of medicine restriction prohibits direct employment of physicians by
hospitals, a number of exemptions are available that allow hospitals and physicians to establish
affiliated physician organizations. This presentation will provide insights into how California
hospitals and physicians may align under various models. In addition, the presentation will
highlight critical elements of success for managing performance under an aligned structure.


I.      Learning Objectives
                  Understand why hospital/physician alignment is important now and in the future.
