“What I do not like is that the goalposts are set so high,” said Michael W. Schoenfeld, the executive vice president and chief financial officer at Duke University Hospitals and Clinics, which has a total of 717 hospitals and is a division of Duke Health Systems.
“We do not have a great system for patient care.
And when the system is broken, it hurts everybody.”
The Duke Health System is the largest in the nation with more than 2.7 million beds.
“I would say we are in the minority of hospitals that are going to be able to get into the new generation of care,” said Schoenold, who oversees the health system’s patient care programs.
The new systems, including the aimbridge, aimbridge hospitals, aim bridge hotels and the aim bridge care team, aim bridges staff and other hospital staff, will focus on providing high-quality care and supporting the communities. “
So, we need to be very deliberate and thoughtful in where we go.”
The new systems, including the aimbridge, aimbridge hospitals, aim bridge hotels and the aim bridge care team, aim bridges staff and other hospital staff, will focus on providing high-quality care and supporting the communities.
The aimbridge system will provide patient care by providing physicians, nurses, hospital administrators, and other health care workers with an additional income stream and will provide the facilities with the necessary equipment and personnel to meet the challenges of delivering care to patients.
“The goalbridge system is the best way to get the most bang for the buck,” said the Duke Hospital System’s David D. Miller, who is leading the aim bridges initiative.
The Duke Hospital system also will help patients, who are eligible to pay for care, pay for their care through the new payer-pay program, called aimbridge health care.
“In the aim system, the goal is not only to get you into a care plan, it’s to ensure that you’re being treated appropriately,” Miller said.
“And the goalbridge is that when you’re on the wards, that you feel that the care you’re receiving is being delivered with care.”
The aim bridge systems also will provide access to care through care coordination teams, and aim bridges will help provide the hospitals with the expertise to make sure that the hospitals’ primary care staff and doctors work together.
“When you talk to your primary care doctor about what you need, you’ll get a list of things that are needed in the hospital,” said Miller.
“That’s where you can be a part of the team.”
The hospitals have the flexibility to work with other institutions to make changes to the systems.
“If the goal bridge system is working well, we can go to another hospital,” Miller explained.
“They can build on the system and expand it, and that’s how we work together.”
For example, the aim-bridge system can use the goal-bridge hotels and aim-bridges staff to assist patients who cannot pay for medical care and are being discharged from the aimbridges care.
Miller said the aim is to make the aim systems health care systems more efficient and responsive to patients and the communities they serve.
The goalbridge health system will have the option to continue the current payment-based plan for patients who are paying for care and have not yet received care.
The intention is to have a system that is able to offer payment for care that is more efficient, timely and cost-effective.
“What we’re really looking for is to create an environment where people will have access to the care they need, that is affordable and is high quality, regardless of their income level,” said Henningsen.
“For example, you may need to pay more to go to a specialty hospital, but you can pay the same amount at the goalbridges hospital.
And that’s a great benefit for the health care system.”
