Charles Saunders, M.D.
CEO Saunders: As a practicing physician, I saw how hospitals and physicians offices function (or malfunction) and where institutions lack efficient and effective business processes. Saunders: Product innovation. Saunders: Lack of accountability, often driven by bad data. For decades, senior executives in many hospitals have failed to be engaged in managing their supply chains. This was often the result of failing to fully understand the purchasing process or lacking access to accurate, real-time data on costs and potential savings. That is changing. JHC: Name one or two key directions in which healthcare contracting is headed, and where you expect that trend to take the industry in five years. Saunders: First, giant leaps in supply chain technology.

The Case For and Against Hiring for MACRA - AssuranceMDAssuranceMD

"Many practices will find that [collecting data] and reporting it is a labor intensive exercise and may require chart reviews," according to Charles Saunders, MD, CEO of Integra Connect, a healthcare consulting group specializing in value-based care.
When to Hire for MACRA Saunders is one of the few experts that says hiring staff may be necessary. He says this is the case if a practice chooses to participate in the other MACRA pathway, an advanced alternative payment model (APM). These models have requirements for certain activities such as care coordination and quality improvement programs, which can't simply be automated. "To be successful in driving savings, some investments in these activities will be required for care coordinators and case managers," he says. Typically the clinical and administrative leaders within a practice will partner together to set the overall MACRA agenda and then identify a point person with project management chops to design and oversee the execution plan, says Saunders. However, he makes the bold case that "handling MACRA is ultimately everyone's job. Saunders emphasizes, "Practices must reassess their processes, tools, and technologies."
