    Town Hall Meeting - Clinically Integrated Networks

    Tuesday, January 20 at 4:30 p.m. in P-117
    Hosted by Kenneth Polonsky, MD, Richard T. Crane Distinguished Service Professor,
    Dean of the Division of the Biological Sciences  and the Pritzker School of Medicine, Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs.

    The health care delivery system is undergoing a fundamental transformation from fee for service to value-based reimbursement. These changes are driving physicians and hospitals/health systems together. Similarly, new structures called Clinically Integrated Networks (CINs) have developed to adjust to industry changes and to new approaches to reimbursement by payers. This is a complicated and significant change for us in many ways. Understanding and planning for University of Chicago Medicine's Clinically Integrated Network will be critical to our ongoing success and sustainability. To this end, Dr. Polonsky is inviting you to attend a town hall meeting on Clinical Integration on Tuesday, January 20 at 4:30 p.m. in P-117. During this meeting, he will present an overview of these changes and discuss some possible options on how to address them.

MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR

Welcome to the Department of Medicine at the University of Chicago. Our department was the first department created when the medical school began over 80 years ago. It has evolved into the largest department not only in the medical school with over 345 full time faculty and research faculty but is the largest department in the University. The main missions of the Department of Medicine, scholarship, discovery, education and outstanding patient care, occur in a setting of multicultural and ethnic diversity. These missions are supported by exceptional faculty and trainees in the department. We believe you will quickly agree that the DOM's faculty, fellows and trainees very much represent the forefront of academic medicine –extraordinary people doing things to support the missions of our department. The result is a Department which reaches far beyond the walls of our medical school to improve humanity and health throughout our community and the world providing high quality patient care – and training of the next generation of leaders in medicine.
