Clinical Integration Enables Leading Health Systems to Deliver Higher Quality, Cost-Effective Care
Date:9/6/2011

n Grigson, CFO of Covenant Health System and CEO of Covenant Health Partners stated that, "With health care reform requiring more quality, cost efficiency, and transparency from physicians and health care providers, Covenant Health Partners, together with CRIMSON, is transitioning toward using Clinical Integration as a base for population management to produce the highest quality of care with the lowest cost."

Memorial Hermann Physician Network, the physician group associated with the 11-hospital Memorial Hermann Healthcare System in Houston, received FTC review prior to launch with favorable feedback in 2008 for a CI program that now includes 2,400 physicians.  Benchmarked against nonparticipating physicians, CI program physicians' average lengths of stay were 29 percent lower and complications of care were 15 percent lower during the first year of the program.  Subsequent years of the program have shown similar performance.

"We have put a lot of effort into educating our physicians on CRIMSON and they have come to trust the data we collect and its reflection of their performance," said Shawn Griffin, MD, Chief Quality and Informatics Officer for Memorial Hermann Healthcare System and Memorial Hermann Physician Network.  "Today, we dynamically track clinical activity across care settings and achieve an unprecedented level of coordination.   Our Clinical Integration program has been one of the critical tools that have enabled us to continue to provide quality care while reducing the cost of delivering care to our own employees by 9 percent."

Participating physicians who met the bonus criteria with Memorial Hermann received their first bonus payout in fall 2010, which has increased interest in the program from physicians who had not previously participated.

"Covenant Health System and Memorial Hermann Healthcare System have emerged as leaders in building an environment of trust not just with the physicians they employ
