Gresham, Smith and Partners offers value-added design solutions that improve our clients’ performance across six key indicators: patient safety, operational efficiency, integration of technology, adaptability/resiliency, sustainability and the human experience.
Our commitment to value-added design helps clients assess and prepare for inevitable market shifts during this transformational time for the healthcare industry. As the Affordable Care Act goes into effect, healthcare providers are working hard to elevate clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction, reduce costs, and build or maintain market share. While new care delivery models align physicians and prepare for bundled payment, new business models seek to invigorate community health resources for population health management. Although providers from around the globe now compete on cost and quality, the real medical tourism battle for American patients is intensifying within the United States.
Thriving in today’s highly-competitive environment requires meticulous planning and a deep understanding of the new dual role for health systems. While providers must continue to maintain the highly efficient inpatient facility, they must also establish an effective ambulatory care network. Population health management identifies, segments, and applies the most appropriate resources to manage and maintain community health. Real strategic advantage is now found in a balanced delivery system focused on the entire continuum of care.
With more than 45 years of experience in healthcare design and consulting, Gresham, Smith and Partners has the foundation and expertise needed to develop evidence-based innovative solutions.
