  • The percentage of healthcare providers involved in clinical integration will more than double to 46% within three years as hospitalists, medical staff, and paid directorships decline.
  • Within three years, more than half (51%) of respondents expect to be pursuing population health, up from 33% now.
  • ACO participation is expected to grow from 41% to 55% within three years?likely due to the increased importance of collaboration and growing concerns about taking on risk.
  • More than half (52%) of respondents are pursuing patient-centered medical homes, compared to just 39% a year ago.
