Integrating EM and HM to Improve Performance and Efficiencies

Hospitals across the country are realizing the benefits that arise from integrating key clinical service lines with a single partner. With approximately 130 integrated client sites across the country, TeamHealth is helping to advance the trend toward clinical integration.

One Alabama health system is benefitting from the natural integration of emergency and hospital medicine after only a few short months. In that short period of time, health system leaders are already noticing measurable progress across important metrics such as reduced length of stay, expanded emergency department and inpatient capacity, and improved patient and clinician satisfaction.

Adopting shared goals, and working from a shared dashboard that helps each group improve alignment and identify opportunities for collaboration, this regional health system is realizing positive results that have already translated into improved financial performance.

These early successes, combined with the positive results at other TeamHealth client locations across the country, underscore the dramatic impact that service line integration can have on a hospital’s clinical, operational and financial performance.
