Healthcare delivery today—from systems of care to economics—is experiencing a seismic shift in the locus of value. No longer can delivery be centered on payers or volume-based providers of medical procedures—this new value must be focused on and defined by the receivers and purchasers of healthcare, on our patients and their employers. In this brave new world, success of integrated delivery networks requires a new vocabulary and expertise that include, for example, advanced primary care models beyond the medical home, community-clinical linkages that meaningfully impact the “lived environment” drivers of health, and a mastery of transformative clinical analytics. This is a heavy lift, but—done well—will distinguish thriving provider networks.
