At Foundation, we are proud to support the acute care market by providing lifesaving services for millions of patients per year. We also assist healthcare organizations in finding efficiency- and quality-enhancing solutions that stimulate market growth and improve patients’ lives. The markets we serve include:
Academic Medical Centers – Academic Medical Centers are extremely mission-driven healthcare organizations. They bear the unique responsibility of providing medical education as well as producing groundbreaking research. While they are laser-focused on these imperatives, they also provide their communities with much-needed medical services — from simple to complicated. They are among the most complex organizations in healthcare and provide a bridge to supporting community hospitals with advanced healthcare services. Like community hospitals, they are facing tightening of margins, reimbursement challenges with the move to a value-based care environment. They too are seeking solutions to improve quality and outcomes.
Integrated Delivery Networks – An IDN is a system of healthcare providers and facilities that provide medical services in a geographic area within a state or across state lines. Services provided by IDNs are extensive and typically range from primary care to acute care to home health and more. IDNs are focused on strategic growth by partnering with or acquiring community hospitals and aligning all services in order to better serve their patients through coordinated care models.
Community Hospitals – The frontlines of care in our communities, these hospitals provide short-term general acute care, while focused on saving lives and improving healthcare among the populations they serve. Today, many community hospitals are facing an exorbitant amount of pressure just to keep their doors open. Many are projected to close by 2020, creating gaps in care for millions of Americans. These important community organizations are seeking solutions to help them better measure and report on quality initiatives. They are also seeking to improve efficiency, remain strong in their markets and expand to simply survive.
