Physician Alignment is one of the hottest topics in healthcare today, with industry trends showing increasing numbers of physicians seeking hospital employment, joint ventures, or some other arrangement "deal". Such surging interest is causing a new business dynamic as it relates to hospital-physician relationships, which can be a daunting process.
Services related to Alignment include:
Corazon brings expertise and diverse experience with all types of alignment models – backed by a solid foundation of knowledge related to regulations, legislation, and legal requirements – as the basis of our I3 approach to alignment.
I3 represents Corazon’s proven process of IDEA – INK – IMPLEMENTATION as the most effective means for creating a successful hospital / physician alignment strategy:
Corazon believes that hospitals interested in any type of formal relationship with physicians should investigate their options (IDEA), and secure outside assistance to help ensure that the partnership is clinically viable, legally sound, and also operationally realistic (INK), and then work to clearly and completely roll-out the new model at all levels (IMPLEMENT).
In today's ever-changing environment, hospitals and physicians must carefully investigate options, bring stakeholders to the table, and then diligently plan for the implementation of any new relationship. A clear understanding of potential changes in law and options for exit strategies are a must. By following Corazon’s proven step-by-step process for creating a hospital / physician partnership, a win-win-win can be possible to benefit the hospital, the physicians, and the patient.
Corazon can provide you with the strategic, clinical, operational, market, and financial expertise necessary to develop a truly outstanding specialty program, regardless of your existing scope of services. Our custom menu of services, along with our flexibility and support, will help you make a difference in the quality and cost of your care delivery.

With Corazon's expertise and specialized study of our medical center, we now have a great implementation road map for expanding neuroscience capabilities that are needed to better care for our community.
Corazon's approach to assisting our organization with the evaluation of our cardiovascular service line involved a highly-collaborative process that included cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, cardiovascular staff, key physician users, and executive staff. The outcome was a three-year comprehensive strategic and operational plan. Though the evaluation did not yield many surprises, the benefit of an Corazon's experts providing an objective evaluation fostered collaboration amongst all the stakeholders and I would highly recommend Corazon to other healthcare facilities facing the internal and external challenges of today's market.
[Corazon] has been a tremendous asset to us through this entire process and we greatly value the expertise and facilitation skills they have brought to the table.
The Corazon team’s guidance and project management with our strategic planning and physician alignment initiatives helped move the concepts from the drawing board to reality. We would still be deciding internally what to do next without their facilitated leadership. They were key to gaining the momentum needed to make informed, strategic decisions to move our service line forward.
We have created a strong relationship with the Corazon team throughout the years. Their cardiovascular and project support expertise helped us through the process of developing our PCI and open heart surgery programs.
Corazon has been a valuable resource as we pursue Primary Stroke Certification and the future of neuroscience care. Their expertise has helped us meet our goal of offering advanced care to stroke belt patients.
Throughout our open heart surgery expansion project Corazon was there to provide us with guidance and show us what we were capable of. They do not just provide answers, they assist with finding the best solutions. Our expansion has been a team effort and Corazon has been a valuable part of that team.
We appreciate Corazon’s help with the implementation of our PCI program. The leadership and professionalism of the Corazon team were key to this whole process, and we thank them for the time, efforts, and hard work dedicated to our program. Any hospital that works with Corazon is getting the best there is.
It was a delight working with the Corazon team on the implementation of our PCI and open heart surgery programs. Upon survey completion of the cardiovascular services area by the California Department of Public Health, they indicated that we were the most prepared facility and service they had ever surveyed. I give much of that credit to the knowledge and guidance the Corazon consultants provided. They filled an incredibly important role in helping us to achieve this milestone.
Corazon's involvement in our neuroscience service line expansion saved us months in terms of development time, as well as literally hundreds of thousands of dollars in real savings.
Working with the folks at Corazon made my job so much easier! Being able to draw on their experience with other facilities around the country allowed us to take advantage of best practices, which ensure our marketing efforts hit the ground running. It was nice to have the feeling that you truly have a partner in the process.
Corazon has been an integral part of our hospital for many years. They've helped us put together a truly successful cardiovascular program from both a quality standpoint and a financial standpoint...They've served as a liaison for our cardiac surgeon, helped us recruit a cardiologist, and negotiated a vascular program with our doctors that has been very well-accepted by the community..
