Health System Partnerships

Outpatient surgery access points are a key component of a health system strategy.

The Challenge of a Shifting Healthcare Ecosystem

Healthcare is changing rapidly; reform efforts, a pivot to population health management solutions and changing consumer behavior driven by the adoption of high deductible health plans are re-writing the rules of the healthcare economy. Thriving in this new environment requires nimble health systems to increase collaboration with the right strategic partners.

As the healthcare system shifts to a fee-for-value or value-based payment model, free-standing, outpatient surgery access points should be a key component of a health system strategy. This approach optimizes hospital usage while providing high-quality, cost-effective care in the most appropriate setting to patients who don’t require inpatient services.
