INTEGRATION WITHOUT MERGER ©: Exploring the Value Proposition for the Academic Medical Center
Academic medical centers(AMCs) face many significant challenges in the current environment. Reductions in DSH payments and cuts to IME/GME funding are on the horizon and threaten future margins. Downward pressure on inpatient utilization is making it more difficult to secure sufficient volumes to achieve clinical growth and support the academic mission. And widespread consolidation of community providers is concentrating care within systems and dampening AMC referral streams except for the most complex and costly patients. Addressing these and other challenges of the day requires AMCs think more broadly about the markets they serve and find ways to reach new patients.
During this webinar, learn more about Integration without Merger© as an approach to forming new collaborations to help your AMC achieve sufficient scale and an aligned referral base so that it can operate more efficiently and profitably in today’s rapidly changing marketplace. Integration without Merger© is a unique alignment structure that will enable your AMC to establish a broader set of formal relationships with other high quality providers in the market and work with them on matters of mutual interest that produce value without entering into a transaction.
