CEP America has found that by promoting a culture of collaboration, our physician partners can successfully integrate across departments and clinical settings. Each and every one of our hospital-based physicians understands the importance of breaking down silos and aligning with their fellow hospital providers to coordinate care and improve clinical integration.
While there are challenges to clinical integration, the changing healthcare environment demands inter-departmental collaboration. CEP America encourages all of our physicians to works with their counterparts to develop joint protocols and order sets, institute cross-departmental meetings, and review throughput and patient satisfaction metrics.
The result of clinical integration not only improves physician productivity and satisfaction, but also improves overall operations for the hospital. Our sites have lower turnaround time to admission and report significantly higher quality of care.
