Opening Discussion Topic:

Lessons from Running California’s Largest IPA

Long a significant part of Bay Area healthcare delivery, under the leadership of CEO David Joyner, Hill Physicians Medical Group now provides care to patients throughout ten Northern California counties. While giving physicians an opportunity to remain independent, Hill supports their doctors with a host of innovative solutions enabling enhanced patient care and efficient practices. Hill has also been at the forefront of developing P4P, ACOs, and other innovations.

During David’s Featured Speaker Presentation we’ll hear:

  • How Hill balances their physicians’ desire for independence, while meeting the quality and performance reporting requirements of health plans and ACOs.
  • How they manage to provide Hill’s patients with the resources expected of even larger, or more integrated, Groups.
  • How Hill has been integrating their latest IPA acquisitions into their Medical Group.
  • In a consolidating medical world, David’s expectation for the future of IPAs.
