Integrated Health Systems: Drivers, Design and Strategy

U.S. health care market dynamics challenge the traditional models of health care delivery. As a physician leader, you’ll see these pressures are likely to encourage more provider-side consolidation: physicians and hospitals. Physicians are likely to seek larger clinical care and business models and compete directly for markets and revenue. You’ll see the design, management and strategy of integrated health systems and explore their implications in your organization.

This course is in the Integrated Health Systems Series.
