Event Details

Patient access and access to patients are the lifeblood of the health care industry. Primary care practitioners and primary care practices have historically been the gatekeepers of the healthcare experience, and patient volume is primarily driven by relationships with those providers.

Keeping patients within a network through referrals and linked care has been one of the largest financial concerns of healthcare organizations (HCOs). It drives mergers, acquisitions, strategic decision making, and spending. Now, however, the primary care provider is no longer the sole source of preventative, chronic, and acute care, especially for younger consumers. Independent urgent care clinics, retail clinics (CVS, Walmart, and Walgreens), employer-sponsored health clinics, telehealth, virtual care, and even AI-based chatbots are all seeking to become the new Front Door to Care (click the link for some preparatory reading). As alternatives to the PCP become more available, how will that impact the care delivery chain? What will the options be for consumers looking for health care outside of the PCP? What are the implications for HCOs, networks, employers, payers, and patients?

In this session, Chilmark Analyst Alex Lennox-Miller will lead a discussion with local leaders Keith Figlioli (Partner, LRV Health) and Ken Cahill (CEO, SilverCloud) about these new strategies. We will hear about their experiences testing and adopting new models of care delivery, emerging best practices, and key challenges still facing the industry. We will make sure there is plenty of time for Q&A so come ready for a healthy discussion!
