Ambulatory Strategy Infographic

Leading health systems now derive a majority of their enterprise revenue from ambulatory care. This new reality demands a deepened level of rigor and a systematic approach to develop an optimal ambulatory strategy. The traditional approach—install some physician practices and some services in some buildings somewhere around town—will not suffice over the next five years and beyond. Today’s thinking needs to connect ambulatory sites across the System of CARE and dovetail with overarching organizational goals.

Navigate the Retail Roadway

As savvy consumers increasingly steer their own care, success will require a strategic gear shift to respond to this new retail reality. Along the retail roadway, multiple junctures serve as on- or off-ramps to ongoing relationships. Among them: payers’ crafting of narrow networks, an individual’s initial insurance coverage choice, or site selection for an unscheduled visit.

Population Health Management: Organizational Self-Assessment

This self-assessment is designed to provide a preliminary indication of an organization’s readiness to conduct population health management (PHM). The primary goals of this tool are to spark dialogue, encourage debate and uncover potential blind spots. It is not meant to suggest whether an organization should (or should not) build a PHM program.

Solve the Behavioral Health Puzzle

Given the projected sharp rise in behavioral health volumes, optimally managing the influx of behavioral health patients into the ED must be a high priority. There is abundant need, however, to also organize and coordinate services for individuals at earlier stages of the full care continuum—what Sg2 has long referred to as the System of CARE. While you may not be the key provider for these patients in your market, your participation in building out essential system-wide services can pay high benefits in better outcomes and lower costs.
