1: Sg2 Perspectives: Grill Bill

Bill Woodson, Senior Principal, Intelligence, Sg2

In the first episode of the new Sg2 podcast, Sg2 Perspectives, we jump right in with thought-leader Bill Woodson to pick his brain about a subject we continue to work with members on: the progress and promise of scale. Consolidation among health care providers continues, but the challenging work of true integration and clinical scale remain, in most cases, as aspirational rather than immediate goals.

We tackle the tough questions:

  • How are health systems moving towards the promise of scale?
  • What lessons have been learned thus far?
  • Could there be an impetus to really accelerate change?
