Healthcare Delivery Systems
To prepare for tomorrow’s model, healthcare systems will need to broaden their perspective.
Senior consulting staff members of Charles Franc & Associates (CFA) have made significant impacts in U.S. healthcare by providing innovative solutions to healthcare delivery systems consulting and development. Ronald Osborne, its Vice President, has forty years of experience in healthcare, managed care and healthcare delivery systems and general business operations management. Mr. Osborne brings his full breadth of knowledge in creating and managing patient centered access to healthcare through effective delivery systems to consulting engagements.
The term “delivery systems” is broadly defined as corridors or structured paths for patient access to healthcare services. Examples in the U.S. include payment systems both private and government sectors:
- Structured provider hospital/physician) networks, structured primary care service outlets (independent physicians, physician groups, clinics, primary imaging centers, etc.) payer group contracting, contractual arrangements with large insurance companies and other large corporations and payer groups, and innovative means of creating patient usage of a particular provider or patient access to an individual provider or groups of providers.
- Having extensive experience in all these areas, CFA senior team members have helped many U.S. hospitals and health systems increase their patient volume by providing expert assistance in determining their unique needs in the market and in developing creative delivery systems adapted to meet the unique needs of each provider client.
