Multi-hospital integrated delivery systems (IDS) have been forming and growing at a rapid rate in many regions of the country. Maintaining multiple organized medical staffs within a single integrated health system can be inefficient, expensive, reduce the effectiveness of medical staff initiatives, and increase liability. This session will describe how to determine if one or more medical staffs should be merged within an IDS; how to proceed with a full or partial merger project and achieve board approval; what design options exist when considering more efficient medical staff bureaucracy within an IDS; how to promote physician buy-in for the process and address the concerns of medical staff professionals; and what implementation steps should be undertaken to successfully complete a merger project.

  • The pros and cons of consolidating medical staffs in a multi-hospital health system.
