Healthcare Management


• Government agencies that need to streamline systems and organizations to provide citizens with better coordinated care and services


• Hospitals that can digitize their front offices integrate their acute and ambulatory care operations and share data to improve care quality and measurement capabilities • Health payers that will make improved care quality and outcomes-based payments a priority and require providers to report on program effectiveness. • New care delivery organizations, such as retailers, community-based clinics and home health providers that help to improve care coordination and management and make it easier for citizens to access services • Educational institutions that are committed to developing a skilled population, putting the right kind of research capabilities in place and investing in the healthcare and life sciences ecosystem


How cities, communities or regions begin their journeys will vary based on their goals, priorities and resources. However, after they get started, they can begin to realize the economic and quality of life benefits these changes can deliver.

In January 2012, the Brookings Institution ranked Rochester the third best metro economy in the US, 46th in the world. The area has some of the lowest healthcare and health insurance costs in the country because of a commitment to health as a pillar of its economic development, along with the support and collaboration of healthcare, business, university and government leaders. These leaders provided the resources needed to create integrated healthcare delivery systems; wellness and nutrition programs; and research, behavior and environmental programs that enhance individual and population health.
