Co-management model: doctors manage service lines

A co-management model, implemented July 2009 at Genesys Regional Medical Center (Grand Blanc, MI), is described in this case study.  The hospital already had a successful PHO in place, the Genesys Physician-Hospital Organization, with 160 FTE primary care physicians, but was looking for an alignment model to integrate with specialists.  The new model involves investment by specialists in a co-management company that manages a service line.  Although there were challenges gaining acceptance of this new idea, the changes has led to improved patient satisfaction and has positioned the hospital and medical staff to pilot an accountable care organization.
