Slideshow: Path to Collaborative Care Paved with Risk, Revenue
The potential of collaborative care to lower costs and improve healthcare quality and outcomes is coming online rapidly. More than two thirds (69%) of healthcare leaders are in at least the early stages of considering participation in a formal collaborative care model and one quarter are already participating in one.
The path, however, is not free of roadblocks. Exclusive research conducted by HealthLeaders Media finds that:
- Seventy-eight percent of collaborative care models will be fully operational by 2014.
- The greatest roadblocks to adopting collaborative care with physicians are their desire to remain independent (21%), a lack of buy-in (17%), and a lack of trust (14%).
- Forty-five percent of healthcare leaders are concerned about achieving cost savings from collaborative care, and 40% fear an exposure to financial risk.
In the most recent intelligence report, Collaborative Care: Hospitals Balance Risk and Revenue With Physicians and Payers, we analyze data collected from senior healthcare executives, examining both the risk and rewards associated with collaborative care.
