Academic medical centers (AMC) are accustomed to a challenging climate but health care reform initiatives have brought a new dimension to an already challenging environment. AMC’s are now facing additional challenges as a result of the reform-driven agenda of high-value health care delivery.
AMC leaders of today are dealing with escalating budgetary and political pressures, external funding threats, community relationship integration, changes to payer mix, medical student pipeline expansion, low quality rankings, all mixed in with the already intense balancing act between clinical care, medical research, and education needs.
Unfortunately, AMC’s structures are decentralized making it more difficult to respond quickly to the challenges stemming from this new health care environment. To survive in today’s dynamic environment, AMC’s need to evaluate their entire system to improve operational margins across the entire enterprise.
