Connecting Physicians. Enhancing Patient Care.

"Clinical integration" is the coordination of care across a range of services. These services include preventative, outpatient, inpatient acute hospital care, post-acute care, rehabilitation, home health services, and palliative care. The goal is to improve the quality of the care provided.

Bayhealth and private-practice physician leaders have come together to form a clinically-integrated network known as the Bayhealth Physician Alliance. Currently, there are more than more than 270 physicians representing more than 65 practices throughout Central and Southern Delaware participating in the alliance.

Bayhealth Physician Alliance is physician-led and administratively and financially supported by Bayhealth. Member physicians determined the alliance’s organizational structure and the evidence-based clinical quality initiatives that will improve quality, enhance the patient experience and reduce overall costs.

Bayhealth Physician Alliance goals include:

  • Incorporating a physician-led, clinically-integrated network
  • Developing and managing initiatives to improve quality of care, enhancing the patient experience and reducing costs
  • Engaging patients in their care and improving patient access to needed services
  • Rewarding quality outcomes and efficient use of healthcare resources
