Top 5 Healthcare Delivery Models for 2012

With a respectable 30 percent rating, patient-centered medical homes topped the list of healthcare delivery models most likely to cut costs and improve care in the coming year, according to the Healthcare Intelligence Network’s eighth annual Healthcare Trends and Forecasts survey. Comprehensive primary care came in second, with 21 percent of the votes. An upcoming presidential election was among the events expected to impact the healthcare industry.

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. We wanted to see which care delivery models healthcare companies believe can do the most to reduce costs and improve quality of care for the new year.

  • Patient-Centered Medical Home: 30 percent
  • Comprehensive Primary Care: 21 percent
