2012 Healthcare Delivery Models This Week's Challenge: As if digesting the plethora of care delivery initiatives rolled out by CMS over the last year wasn't enough, the healthcare industry faces a presidential election, looming health IT mandates and continued economic uncertainty this year.

What We Learned: HIN's eighth annual Healthcare Trends and Forecasts survey, administered in October 2011, identified top-of-mind concerns, business successes and lessons and key trends for 126 healthcare companies. According to survey respondents, the healthcare delivery models that could reduce costs and improve care quality for 2012 are:

  • PCMHs: 30 percent

  • Comprehensive Primary Care: 21 percent

  • ACOs: 19 percent

  • Bundled Payments: 18 percent

  • Multi-Payor Advanced PCP: 12 percent
