Becker’s Hospital Review
Features Kristin Boehm, Senior Advisor at Nexera
The realities of healthcare reform – including the departure from fee-for-service models of care, shrinking reimbursement and higher quality standards – means the impetus for collaboration around cost, quality and outcomes is only going to grow.
However, traditional paradigms in hospitals are not conducive to the type of cross-sectional collaboration required to make the shift to value-based care effective. No longer can physicians and hospital administrators function in silos as opposing forces. They must find ways to build positive, symbiotic relationships that enable understanding and the sharing of ideas, according to Kristin Boehm, MD, senior advisor at Nexera, a healthcare consulting firm specializing in operations improvement and supply chain management.
