Although not a new concept, clinical integration (CI) is considered essential to the framework of an accountable care organization (ACO) because of its ability to generate physician trust, commitment, and acceptance of performance monitoring to achieve goals.

Case Study in Clinical Integration: The Advocate Physician Partners Experience is a primer for organizations wishing to duplicate the experience of Advocate Physician Partners (APP), whose CI program encompasses 3,800 physicians and has resulted in improvements in patient outcomes and significant cost savings, according to its 2011 Value Report.

In this 20-page report, Mark Shields, MD, MBA, senior medical director for Advocate Physician Partners (APP) and vice president of medical management for Advocate Health Care, details the CI program APP developed for its 3,800 physicians from the structure of the CI group to funding, incentives, mechanisms and technology that support CI.
