Enterprise Physician Alignment


Physician alignment and the context in which health systems pursue it have evolved significantly, particularly in the era of value-based care. Leading health systems, hospitals, clinically integrated networks, accountable care organizations and physician groups recognize that their ability to achieve advanced cross-continuum care and health system success, depends on the ability to powerfully engage their physicians as fully committed “owner-operators” of the clinical enterprise. They are asking, “Are we aligned with our physicians - and they with us - so that we can operate as one?” The answers to this question, more than any other, will determine which organizations succeed in an increasingly value-based and demanding healthcare environment.

Provider organizations must foster and support high-affinity physician engagement with accountability for performance based on strategic priorities; where physicians are able to demonstrate ownership and drive clinical and operational change.

CPLI helps clients effectively:

  • Create the physician alignment necessary to fully support enterprise strategic requirements and capabilities.
  • Create a market differentiating affinity with physicians.
  • Position physician leaders as “owner operators” of the clinical enterprise with management capabilities that drive performance accountability.
  • Engage physicians in clinical change management required for highly reliable, consensus-driven excellence in clinical outcomes.
  • Assess and deploy clinical and information technologies with demonstrable returns on investment.
  • Demonstrate market leading clinical outcomes and cost of care management.
