A Medical Doctor’s Perspective on Building the Necessary Resources and Partnerships to Take Healthcare into the Community
July 14, 2014
Hosted by Robert Chamberlain
In today’s world of population health management, providers focus on moving healthcare out of the acute setting, past ambulatory care and into preventative services, while increasing market share. Health systems and hospitals have found that working with the commercial market (employers) is the best way to meet both objectives. The challenge becomes how to wrap together a multidisciplinary team with external partners and deliver a comprehensive population health initiative designed to create positive outcomes. DeKalb Medical’s answer: Invest in a medical doctor to drive the strategy. Join Robert and his guest, Shealynn Buck, MD, executive director of Employee Health Solutions at DeKalb Medical, as they discuss the challenges and opportunities the independent, 627-bed, not-for-profit health system faces in changing the dynamic of how they bring healthcare into the metro Atlanta community by utilizing numerous service lines to meet population health demands.
