Now that healthcare reform is here, it’s a new world for hospitals and physicians. Payment approaches that reward quality, coordination, and value, coupled with ongoing economic and competitive pressures, encourage alignment as never before.  Hospital & Physician Relationships: An Executive Summit — set for October 19-21 at Camelback Inn in Scottsdale, Ariz. — is an opportunity for healthcare executives and physicians to examine strategies and tactics for successful alignment.

Now in its ninth year, the Summit has a tradition of tackling the front-burner relationship issues for hospitals and physicians. This year’s Summit features 70 presenters and includes three general sessions, two pre-conference workshops, and 30 concurrent case study sessions in four tracks — Value-Based Models, Physician Alignment, Medical Staff Engagement and Growth, and Physician Relations. More than 200 healthcare and physician executives are expected to attend the Summit, which is sponsored by the Forum for Healthcare Strategists.

Value-based care, accountability, alignment, and integration are central themes of this year’s Summit. The opening general session on Wednesday will bring together a panel of health system executives to explore what it means to be accountable, whether or not an organization chooses to participate as a Medicare ACO.  Christine Malcolm, Managing Director and West Coast Leader for Healthcare for Navigant Consulting, Inc., will moderate the panel discussion.

Paul Keckley, PhD, Executive Director of Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, will deliver Thursday’s keynote session. Dr. Keckley, a Washington insider, will provide an inside scoop on the latest developments in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and the implications for hospital and physician alignment.

On Friday, Kaveh Safavi, MD, JD, will provide an enlightening look at the transformative role of technology in healthcare. Dr. Safavi is a noted healthcare futurist and Vice President and Global Lead of the Internet Business Solutions Group Healthcare Practice for Cisco.

Featured case studies include Advocate Lutheran General, Advocate Physician Partners, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Dean Clinic, Geisinger Health System, Guthrie Clinic, Seattle Children’s Hospital, Sentara Healthcare, University of Miami, UT MD Anderson Cancer Center, West Penn Allegheny Health System, and many more.
