We achieve this through a clinically integrated physician network ­– combining hospitals, physician groups and independent physicians to create a true accountable care organization.

The clinical integration program at Baptist Health System is physician-driven and physician-led. This collaborative effort spans the continuum of care, improving quality in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

Key Elements:

  • A physician-led, professionally managed quality program
  • A sophisticated health information technology system to collect data across the care continuum (Inpatient and Ambulatory settings)
  • A legal basis for collective negotiations with health plans for potentially improved fee schedules and pay-for-performance bonuses
