Time and tide wait for no man
At Philips, we have the opportunity to work with a large number of organizations across the country, and in order to help us better understand our clients (and our clients to better understand themselves!) we have developed a Network Maturity Model that I would like to introduce in this week’s Philips Blog.
Health systems and physician organizations across the country are working very hard these days to keep up with quickly changing reimbursement and care delivery models. Some of these organizations are very large and well staffed, but they may still be struggling to implement the programs, processes, and technology they need to meet these new challenges. Other organizations are just getting started aligning with physicians, establishing governance, and even finding office space for the teams they are building. Others are somewhere between these two extremes.
The following graphic is how we look at providers and their networks, and this image will be the basis for today’s discussion and subsequent related Philips blog posts.
