Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 22, 2012
Becker's Hospital Review is proud to announce the release of its list, 61 Integrated Health Systems to Know, which showcases the wide variety and high caliber of services offered by some of the country's top integrated health systems.
The health systems featured on this list have achieved a high level of integration as demonstrated through strong physician alignment. They also address the continuum of care through clinics, rehabilitation centers, psychiatric care facilities, medical groups, accountable care organizations and various other healthcare entities. As the healthcare industry moves from a fee-for-service model to a pay-for-performance system that focuses on quality patient care, these organizations have been at the forefront in providing access to an array of health services beyond direct patient care, such as pharmacies, educational opportunities, management companies and health plans.
Health systems were selected for inclusion on this list based on data from healthcare analytics company SDI, nominations and careful research by the Becker's Hospital Review editorial team. Health systems do not pay and cannot pay to be included on this list. There are never fees involved in Becker's Hospital Review lists. Recognized health systems are free to note their inclusion through marketing materials, website promotion, press releases and other media materials without paying a fee.
