Community Healthcare System will soon be implementing an integrated approach to its patient care. Community Healthcare Partners, a clinical integration organization, is designed to develop ongoing clinical initiatives to provide a higher quality, more efficient, less costly care for its patients. It's a model similar to an Accountable Care Organization, but it's not tied to the Affordable Care Act or Medicare. "We're in the early stages of creating a clinical integration organization that will make Community a better healthcare system, with the goal of improving quality and reducing costs," says Kevin Mybeck, vice president of managed care for Community Healthcare System.
