Changing healthcare market forces, such as value-based care models, consolidation, and payer mix erosion, have propagated declining margins and fueled hyper-competition among healthcare organizations vying for market share. In this new world, determining effective patient engagement strategies has become paramount for hospitals and health systems as they strive to acquire, retain, and re-activate patients, and, ultimately, drive revenue. Now, more than ever, it is critical that healthcare organizations create and maintain positive, lasting relationships with their patients, both current and prospective, working to attract them into their network and keep them there.
Providers are increasingly making the leap and investing in their organizations in preparation for value-based care. However, while no one wants to be behind the competency curve when it arrives, it can be expensive to build competency for a new model before it is financially viable, causing providers to remain cautious.
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.

In many aspects of healthcare, we see indications of change, with movement toward new payment models and investments in infrastructure to support the delivery of value-based care. Cost control remains a top financial lever, but the discipline is becoming more complex. From a brute-force perspective, controlling cost has a direct effect on operating margin, which provides the classic move of cost control through cost cutting. Now, though, organizations need new command over cost factors themselves.
