84: My Back Hurts and I Could Really Use a Comprehensive Spine Program

This week begins a series of Sg2 Perspectives episodes that dive into the details of health system service lines, and in this episode, we focus on the landscape for spine care with neurosciences and spine experts Sg2 Senior Consulting Director Katherine Zentner and Vizient Consulting Director Patrick Vega. Spine care continues to be high priority for many of our members, but they’re facing pressures from a lot of different angles: payers, employers, patients, physicians and beyond. Kate and Patrick dig into these industry forces, discussing what hospitals and health systems should focus on for building comprehensive spine programs—as well as challenges and how to combat them—and provide key recommendations and takeaways for organizations looking to grow and maximize their spine service line.

We are always excited to get ideas and feedback from our listeners. You can reach us at, find us on Twitter as @Sg2HealthCare, or visit the Sg2 company page on LinkedIn.
