Jossey-Bass, April 2010
The concept of “accountable care organizations” has gained traction with the current health insurance reform debate, and there is increasing acceptance among industry leaders that care coordination that comes from system integration is necessary to achieve both the cost and quality goals of health reform. CAPP with the Kaiser Permanente Institute of Health Policy identified expert authors to collaborate on a book about physician-hospital integration.
Resulting publication: The book, Partners in Health: How Physicians and Hospitals can be Accountable Together, authored by Dr. Jay Crossen and Laura Tollen, was published by Jossey-Bass (Wiley) in April 2010. This publication was featured in Accountable Care News, CAPG Health, and Modern Healthcare.
