Physician Alignment is Everything
Every aspect of health system performance is directly influenced by the decisions and behaviors of its physicians. In the value-based healthcare environment, the role of physicians and physician leaders becomes even more vital to the success of the system. Physician engagement and alignment with enterprise strategy and operational goals are key differentiators in the performance and success of leading health systems in the new era of healthcare.
Uniquely powerful transformation occurs from successful collaboration with aligned physician leadership. The Chartis Physician Leadership Institute (CPLI) brings together senior physician executives with unrivaled expertise from the nation’s leading health systems, academic medical centers, medical groups and health plans.

Our thought leadership spans physician alignment across the care continuum - acute, ambulatory, primary, specialty and post-acute. Alignment and performance is achieved in synergy with health system and medical group objectives, enterprise plans, population health and value-based care efforts, informatics and technology.
