LOUISVILLE, Ky., Jan. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- HSG (formerly Healthcare Strategy Group), a national healthcare consulting firm led by former industry physicians and executives, announced that Health Administration Press, a division of the Foundation of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), has published its new book: "Employed Physician Networks: A Guide to Building Strategic Advantage, Value and Financial Sustainability" by David Miller, FACHE; Terrence R. McWilliams, MD, MSJ, FAAFP and Travis C. Ansel, MBA.
A strong, integrated physician group is essential for any healthcare organization wanting to improve patient care, access and financial performance. The book, now available in paperback for $58 for non-ACHE members and $40.60 for members of ACHE, outlines a clear framework for an employed physician network's growth from the "novice phase" through the "high-performing phase" and highlights elements that contribute to a successful evolution for networks.
"When healthcare leaders can initiate a plan of action created around predictable phases of evolution and growth, their work can have a significant impact on the system's long-term success and can also improve patient care in the community," said David Miller, managing partner at HSG.
One of the key factors in reaching a state of high performance as a healthcare network is to ensure that all members, at all levels of a network, have shared goals to align the system. With the aid of this new book, healthcare leaders will be able to pinpoint their network's current challenges and then apply practical advice and recommendations for priorities that will likely need to be addressed for the organization and network to progress through the more advanced phases towards being a high-performing network.
"Our goal in writing this book was to share information about interactions and experiences we've had with healthcare leaders and physicians so that existing and developing healthcare leaders are fully informed about barriers and success factors when building a high-performing network, added Dr. Terrence McWilliams, chief clinical consultant at HSG.
