A healthcare mergers-and-acquisitions movement has emerged, as hospitals and health systems work to make sense of the value-based care models being promoted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and commercial insurers. While these partnerships help address new payment models and related financial obstacles, they also bring added operational challenges.
Acurity helps providers undergoing mergers, acquisitions, or affiliations perform better as they become new systems. We have helped numerous providers implement and scale
- customized supply chain integration strategies
- restructuring (including integrating new clinical pathways), setting up a new infrastructure, and gaining leadership buy-in for system-wide standardization
- clinically integrated supply chain models
The impact of these services—from cost savings and cost avoidance to system-wide efficacy—are significant.
Physician Practice Purchasing Solution
Many physicians are joining physician-hospital organizations (PHOs) in an effort to proactively meet market demand for demonstrable value. PHOs are an excellent solution for coordination across the continuum of care, as well as a way of aligning compatible clinical and business goals. Acurity’s Physician Practice Purchasing Solution allows owned, leased, or managed physician practices to purchase the products they need at prices typically only available to acute care health systems, achieving savings for both the physician practice and the parent organization.
