Dr. Bruce Bethancourt, chief medical officer of St. Vincent Medical Group, outlined the steps St. Vincent Health has taken to transition to a new model of care.
Are Providers Ready for This Tsunami?
We recently discussed the impact of all of the changes going on with payment models on the providers. We discussed that the evolution to payment models that reimburse for quality and outcomes rather than volume of visits and procedures will have significant impact on the providers. This is no trivial change! Physicians have practiced the same way for thousands of years. Patients with medical issues come to them and receive care. Now, they have to take on a whole new set of activities. They need to make sure that the patients take their medications so they can achieve their treatment goals.
