Bayhealth announces the launch of Bayhealth Physician Alliance, a clinically integrated physician network serving Central Delaware. Bayhealth Physician Alliance provides participating physicians with a state-of-the-art system for enhanced quality care, improved alignment among the many processes and providers of care, and more highly engaged patients.
Bayhealth Physician Alliance is physician-led and financially and administratively supported by Bayhealth. Joseph Rubacky, DO, is the founding chair of the Board of Managers; Scott Bovelsky, MD, is the founding co-chair. Other physician members of the inaugural Board of Managers are Thomas Barnett, MD, Vincent Lobo, DO, Steven Manifold, MD, and Michel Samaha, MD.
To date, the Physician Alliance has developed a comprehensive quality program across all medical staff specialties; selected an information system to provide its workflow and analytics backbone; and is currently enrolling physicians. A series of informational Town Hall meetings are being held during September and October in Dover, Milford, and Camden.
As healthcare reform unfolds nationwide through the Affordable Care Act and across Delaware through Choose Health Delaware, clinically-integrated networks such as the Bayhealth Physician Alliance provide physicians and other healthcare providers a unique opportunity to improve patient outcomes, engage patients in their own care, and be prepared for the changes in healthcare that lie ahead.
