13 hospital and health system executives on successful partnerships

Scott Steiner. CEO of DMC Detroit Receiving, DMC Harper University and DMC Hutzel Women's Hospital: In 2016, two Detroit Medical Center (DMC) Hospitals, DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital and DMC Harper-Hutzel Hospital, part of Dallas-based Tenet Health System, entered into a co-management agreement with more than 50 physicians. The sole purpose of this agreement is to improve care delivery and quality outcomes for patients. "The rationale for this agreement was to create and standardize best practices, processes and procedures with an intense focus on patient care. To date, this approach is yielding favorable results. We have accomplished a 30 percent improvement in our quality outcomes and a 4 percent increase in patient happiness scores. This collaborative focus on clinical outcomes is vital for the hospital, physicians and most importantly, our patients."
