The ABCs of ambulatory integration: Best practices from Adventist Health, Banner Health and CoxHealth

Health system leaders have prioritized expanding their ambulatory footprints for years amid growing demand for more outpatient services and the need to expand access to care. The pandemic has only accelerated this trend, with more systems actively acquiring clinics and surgery centers while also expanding virtual care offerings.

Amid acquisitions and expansions, health system leaders must work to ensure staff are strategically unified and the right technology systems are in place to support high-quality care. Without this integration, organizations are vulnerable to unnecessary operational complexities and care variation.

This white paper offers insights into the integration journeys at three health systems and is derived from interviews with leaders from Roseville, Calif.-based Adventist Health; Phoenix-based Banner Health; and Springfield, Mo.-based CoxHealth.
