“Service Line Development"

Many healthcare organizations are using a service-line approach to organizational development for the purposes of strategic planning, business planning, operations and marketing. Service-line development is not only an organizational tool, but also can increase physician involvement, align resources and provide an integrated continuum of care for the patient. Benefits can include increased customer satisfaction, quality and performance improvements, market share gains, and financial improvement. This program will review common operational and cultural issues of organizing around service lines followed by panelist presentations of specific service-line case studies. The program will
conclude with a question-and-answer period.

Esteemed Panelists:

Patricia Hagen PT MHA Executive Director of Orthopedics & Rehab Services at John Muir Health

Chris Wood MHA FACHE Senior Director of the Mercy Neurological Institute of Greater Sacramento (Dignity Health)

Claudia Crist RN MHA FACHE Assistant Administrator of Surgical Services for Sutter Medical Center Sacramento 

Facilated by:

Jerry Birk MHA FHFMA Vice President, Cardiovascular and Thoracic Service Lines for Rideout Regional Medical Center 


Networking 7:45 AM - 8:30 AM

Panel Discussion: 8:30 AM - 10:30 AM


"Physician Integration Approaches"

There is a broad spectrum of physician-hospital alignment options, from informal relationships that include physician advisory committees or collaborating on billing to structured reimbursement contracting arrangements to more integrated joint venture partnerships on services up to acquisition of the practice and employment options. Each integration approach along the spectrum serves the purpose of linking physicians and hospitals together and aligning incentives toward common goals. This program explores the continuum of traditional physician-hospital integration models, the latest innovated approaches, and asks the panelist to speak on the strengths and weaknesses of each.The topics addressed in this session are sure to provoke many questions and comments from the audience. Be sure to leave adequate time for this interactive component.
