Co-Management Arrangements: Sharing a Vision, Sharing a Service, Sharing the Wealth

Consolidation and integration in the healthcare industry have inevitably created varied models for health systems, hospitals, and physician groups to work together. One of those models is a co-management arrangement, a business and legal structure in which a hospital and physician entity work together to oversee a selected clinical service.

Co-management arrangements are frequently used to align a hospital and a physician entity in working toward common goals that mutually benefit both parties. These benefits include lowering the cost of care on an episodic basis, improving patient experiences, and decreasing the per capita cost of care.

This guide from KSM’s Healthcare Resources Group explains the many clinical and financial benefits of co-management arrangements and explores how these models work from the perspectives of various parties through thoughtful examples.
