Abstract

Physicians and hospital management and staff often work side by side but rarely together. There are many cost-saving and quality-improving benefits that could result from proper integration, but many economic and operational barriers stand in between the status quo and a fully-integrated healthcare system. These misalignments and practices contribute to wasted healthcare spending.
