In the post-ACA era, aligning physicians with organizational goals appears to be gaining traction in health systems and hospitals nationwide. Based on a February survey of the HealthLeaders Media Council, comprising executives from healthcare provider organizations across the country, physician alignment remains a complex challenge. Even as value-based care continues to take effect, clinical integration or alignment is quickly emerging from a need to ensure quality, cut costs, and drive referrals across health systems and hospitals. Directly employing physicians has been one of the main strategies healthcare leaders are using to improve physician alignment with health systems. Download this free report today, and learn about the results of aligning the goals of physicians and organizations.

Hospital communications used to be a lot simpler. If you needed to find a doctor, you could dial 0 and the operators would connect you or send a page on your behalf. People communicated through paper charts, wrote key phone numbers on grease boards, and kept on-call schedules in binders. Some of this still happens today, but communications across healthcare have become progressively more convoluted. The use of diverse mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, pagers, Wi-Fi phones, etc.), and the rise in care complexity necessitating care team coordination mean more sophisticated communication technology is required.

Healthcare reform regulations, increasing costs, and more competition are driving employers and their health plans to focus more than ever on opportunities to reduce cost trends. For example, the country experienced a 3.0% growth in per capita gross (allowed) medical and pharmacy costs from 2012 to 2013. Truven Health Analytics anticipates those costs in 2014 and 2015 will increase by 4% to 5% or more. By taking a data-driven approach, payers can manage costs and, ultimately, make their benefit programs sustainable in the context of healthcare reform. They can also maximize opportunities to improve population health and productivity and optimize the delivery of care.

Some factors commonly used to explain poor operating performance do not prevent many hospitals from being highly profitable. For example, Truven Health AnalyticsTM has found that rates of uncompensated care, drug expense, and other factors do not seem to differ between unprofitable and very profitable hospitals. But factors such as Medicaid utilization rates and poor reimbursement rates do appear to impact the least profitable hospitals. One controllable factor that appears to be significant is labor productivity, with the most profitable hospitals posting the lowest labor expense per patient.

The Truven Health Analytics 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study identifies hospitals that achieve the best performance on a scorecard of performance measures. This year, based on comparisons between the winners and a peer group of similar high-volume hospitals that were not winners, the study found that if all cardiovascular providers performed at the level of this year’s winners, approximately 9,500 additional patients could survive, more than $1 billion could be saved, and almost 3,000 additional bypass and angioplasty patients could be complication-free. This is based on an analysis of Medicare patients; if the same standards were applied to all inpatients, the impact would be even greater.

Even as the move to electronic health records (EHR) progresses in earnest, there are a myriad of challenges involving legacy data systems. Chief among these challenges is the cost of maintaining obsolete systems solely for the patient information they contain. When up to 70% of a typical IT budget is spent on maintaining the current IT infrastructure and application portfolio, organizations have little left to invest in much-needed innovation. According to a recent HealthLeaders Media Survey, many organizations are still adjusting after their migration to a new EHR system. Hospitals need to get a better grasp on all forms and sources of data that they have—and the data they don’t yet have—so that the right information can be delivered to the right individual, and in the right context, at the point of care.

In late August 2014, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced plans to reinstate the Recovery Audit program on a limited basis. CMS reports the delay in restarting the Recovery Audit program was to enable the various RAC regions to restructure, allowing time for the appeals to catch up. Soon, however, the hiatus will end and RACs in all regions will resume automated reviews; these will be in addition to select complex reviews based on topics chosen by CMS.

HealthLeaders' survey on workforce management queried leaders from a cross-section of U.S. healthcare organizations, including hospitals, health systems, physician organizations, and long-term care/skilled nursing facilities. The 150 respondents represent executives across all disciplines — administration, clinical, operations, finance, marketing, and information. In the next three to five years, hospitals, health systems, and other patient service providers expect to augment their time-and-attendance and payroll systems with integrated applications that enable more sophisticated data crunching around labor analytics, acuity management, and staffing assignments. The goal? To convert the workforce from overhead to asset — a flexible, agile asset that will help organizations succeed in an increasingly demanding regulatory and competitive environment.
