Integrated Practice Units
Organizing Care Around Patient Medical Conditions
To deliver more value, providers need to focus on quality—on deepening their expertise, and expanding their ability to serve the complex and interrelated needs of each patient over the full course of care.
The greatest improvements in health care outcomes and efficiency will come from sustained, team-based focus on a carefully defined set of medically integrated services and practices. Integrated practice units will achieve scope and scale by growing locally and geographically in their areas of strength, rather than expanding the breadth of their service.
