26 – One ACO/Integrated Delivery System’s Governance Journey
Effective governance is essential for meaningful and sustained outcomes improvement in healthcare. In this session, MultiCare Health System, an ACO and integrated delivery system, will outline its journey to establishing a comprehensive governance structure and a set of processes to harness the power of analytics, which enables the organization to accelerate and sustain outcomes improvements.
This discussion will cover the four key principles MultiCare used in building the framework for its governance structure:
Engage stakeholders around a common vision.
Establish a shared understanding of organizational needs, capabilities, and readiness.
Create alignment with a consistent improvement methodology, incentives, and priorities.
Keep focused on practicing disciplined decision making to prioritize, fund, organize, and sustain improvements that require analytics.
