The American Medical Association is collaborating with hospitals, independent physician associations, our nation’s largest integrated health care systems’ leaders and payers to cultivate successful physician leadership that improves the value of care for patients. Working with these stakeholders to bring clinical skills and business insights together at the leadership level, the AMA is fostering a more cohesive and integrative decision-making process within hospitals and health care systems.
Integrated Leadership for Hospitals and Health Systems: Principles for Success
To help hospitals and health care systems institute that kind of decision-making process, the American Hospital Association (AHA) and the AMA released "Integrated Leadership for Hospitals and Health Systems: Principles for Success" in June 2015.
“Principles” provides a guiding framework for physicians and hospitals that choose to create an integrated leadership structure but are unsure how to best achieve the engagement and alignment necessary to collaboratively prioritize patient care and resource management.
