A New Era of Partnership Between Pharmaceutical Companies and Health Care Delivery Organizations

The leadership training program called “A New Era of Partnership” was held this week at Baylor Scott & White Health. This program covers a wide range of topics such as population health management, performance improvement methodologies, and the role of health information technology. The participants that attended this program really enjoyed it and found the information presented very relevant and applicable to any health care system.

The attendees also had an opportunity to participate in a brainstorming for value activity in which they were asked to develop a value-based purchasing model centered around a new pain control agent. The ideas that the participants came up with provided examples of platforms for engagement between their pharmaceutical company and health care organizations.

In addition to the activity and presentations, there was also a panel discussion. Relevant health care topics covering shared decision making to risk sharing contracts in accountable care organizations were discussed during the panel.

Baylor Scott & White Health leaders understand that in order to achieve quality goals, organizations must identify strategic partners with aligned goals. This program provided valuable insight into the elements health care organizations require from their partners. After the success of this one day program, the participants really understand the new pharma-delivery system paradigm.
