As part of Lexington Clinic’s continuing medical education program, Lea Halim, a consultant with The Advisory Board Company’s Research and Insights division, presented on Wednesday, February 18. At the physician practice roundtable, Halim spoke with Lexington Clinic physicians and staff about how to adapt the medical group strategy for the emerging retail marketplace.
“Halim, who focuses on the central role of physicians in the ever-changing healthcare market, explained that there are different necessities for independent medical group leaders to meet,” said Paula Simonton-Alexander, Lexington Clinic coordinator of continuing medical education.
“The take-home for independent medical groups was that they must reshape their strategy to successfully compete in the emerging retail healthcare industry,” said Simonton-Alexander. “Attendees learned about ‘network assemblers’ - those organizations developing new in-kind insurance products for enrollees - and gained important insight about what individual choice in coverage and care means for provider business models.”
