Improving clinical operations and performance to help support important quality and population health management initiatives requires a collaborative and coordinated approach.

Hospitals, health systems and medical groups nationwide continue to navigate the shift from volume to value-based care. As a result, the focus on improving patient access, reducing physician burnout, advancing population health and lowering the cost of care remain critical priorities.

Organizations must analyze clinical workforce programs and practices to identify immediate opportunities for improvement and develop a roadmap for long-term and sustainable solutions for achieving these goals.

Partnering with organizations to effectively support this transition, SullivanCotter combines over 25 years of industry insight, expertise and hands-on operational experience. Our innovative approach to care delivery, compensation, and workforce performance will empower clinicians, patients and organizations alike.
