COLUMBIA, Md., May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- xG Health Solutions, a leading healthcare management and redesign company powered by Geisinger Health System's proven methods, and Hogan Marren Babbo & Rose (HMBR), a Chambers USA-ranked law firm with an extensive health care practice, are pleased to announce that they will be co-presenting a webinar entitled "Health System Collaboration Without Merger." To be held on June 2, 2016, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time, the webinar will provide practical advice from John Marren, Dr. Steve Pierdon, Vanessa Aburn and Jim Wright on how health systems can collaborate with each other around clinical quality in preparation for population health.
Said Jim Wright, Vice President, Business Development at xG Health and a co-presenter of the webinar, "Health system leaders across the country recognize the need to relate to other health systems for purposes of preparing for population health, delivery high-quality care on a cooperatively planned and organized basis, and engaging payers in joint negotiations to obtain necessary financial incentives. Despite this acknowledgment, however, they face a number of key obstacles to achieving effective collaboration outside of traditional — and often problematic — mergers or acquisitions."
Adds John Marren, a partner in the health care law practice at HBMR and also a co-presenter of the webinar, "The seminar will help participants gain a practical understanding of how they can foster joint clinical planning and operations, upgrade and reallocate tertiary services, provide patients with greater access to health care in their communities, negotiate collectively with payers, and achieve patient care and financial goals while remaining fully legally compliant."
