FUTURE TRENDS: What is the hospital changing into?

Two traditionally hospital-focused provider organizations that are experimenting with new nontraditional models are profiled in this brief article.  The first is Montefiore Medical Center (Bronx, NY), which has a wholly owned subsidiary named CMO-The Care Management Company.  CMO was established in the late ’90s and was a principal reason that Montefiore was chosen to as a Pioneer Accountable Care Organization by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.  It provides Montefiore with a platform to assume financial risk for patients and put population health into practice.  The second organization is Texas Health Resources, which has entered into a contract with Healthways, for disease management services. 

Why do I like this article?  It’s topical!  It’s free full text!  Two nice brief case studies.
