El Camino Hospital Strategy

Last Updated Wednesday, May 02, 2012 3:04:11 PM


The El Camino Hospital Board, leadership, staff, physicians, and community have had the privilege and daunting task of setting a strategy to optimize the health of the residents of Silicon Valley. Approved by the El Camino Hospital District Board below is our strategy to bringing clarity and focus to the work we will own.

As we continue striving towards excellence, while becoming a more efficient, affordable community resource, we will lead efforts and partner with others to ensure we bridge levels of care and work to improve the health of our community.

Strategy

El Camino Hospital will be a locally controlled leader in optimizing the health and wellness of our communities in Silicon Valley, differentiated by innovative continuum of care developed in partnership with physicians, businesses, and payors.

"The hospital that keeps you well"

Positioning Statement

El Camino Hospital will first be a value-based health care provider offering top decile, acute care quality at mid-level pricing, moving toward continuum partnerships that integrate care coordination and delivery strategies focused on the Triple Aim of quality, service, and affordability.

Goals

Quality
Within 3 years, El Camino Hospital's superior acute care clinical programs will be at top decile performance on CMS Value-Based Purchasing core metrics; service levels will be at top quartile performance; El Camino Hospital's clinical services will extend into the community with our care partners with quality metrics related to transitions, chronic condition management and “population health”.

Affordability
Within 3 years, El Camino Hospital's clinical programs will have operating expenses within 10% of the lowest cost and acute care providers located in the primary and secondary service area. El Camino Hospital will measurably reduce clinical variation and improve efficiency through clinical integration with its physician partners. El Camino Hospital will work with payors and physicians to achieve the goals set forth through risk contracting.

Physician Partnerships
El Camino Hospital will advance physician integration structures and partnerships that enable optimal care management through clinical integration, common incentives and patient-centered care delivery throughout Silicon Valley. Within 3 years, El Camino Hospital will have established patient-centered medical homes to retain a balanced medical staff as part of an innovative delivery system and to respond to the health needs of Medicare participants and families.

Innovative Business and Community Alliances
El Camino Hospital will advance a wellness program for El Camino Hospital employees with an emphasis on healthy choices and individual activation, with measurable goals. El Camino Hospital will leverage the innovative nature of Silicon Valley to translate clinical discovery to the bedside. El Camino Hospital will work with business and community providers to develop a broader strategy to improve quality and reduce the overall cost of healthcare in the Silicon Valley.
