Practicing managed care in the academic medical center

Practicing managed care in the academic medical center

Physician Executive 22(3): 20-25

The purpose of this article is to outline the contrasts between the traditional AMC and an organization oriented toward the delivery of population-based managed care. Academic medical centers differ from one another considerably in the extent to which they serve as quaternary care community resources, the degree to which they emphasize primary care in training and care delivery, and the amount of research undertaken. Nor is there a single organizational structure for managed care; successful managed care is practices in IPAs, multispecialty groups, PHOs, and staff-model HMOs. Nonetheless, the contrasts outlined here between AMCs and managed care organizations (MCOs) are valid in most cases.
