PHI's mission is to assist physicians, hospitals and integrated health systems, insurers and others with health reform implementation. Several dominant guiding themes drive the work in this area:
- To help healthcare decision-makers transition from the long-standing fee-for-service economy to the new global payment capitated structure;
- To work with executive managers on clinical leadership initiatives to improve the quality of care and patient outcomes while reducing costs;
- To address any governance issues that may affect the successful implementation of such programs and initiatives; and
- To help organizations prioritize operating plan objectives and address the challenges/issues that may impede the successful execution of them.
