Baptist Health South Florida Report.
Baptist Health South Florida is one of the largest not-for-profit healthcare providers in the United States, with 10 hospitals, more than 100 physician practices and outpatient facilities spanning four counties from Palm Beach to the Florida Keys. The organization is one of South Florida’s largest private employers, with more than 19,500 employees.
As a faith-based organization, Baptist Health provides more than $291 million annually in charity care and other community benefits and supports numerous free clinics throughout its many service areas. Baptist Health also has one of the largest international programs in the country, serving more than 12,000 patients from Latin America and the Caribbean.
Approximately 3,000 physicians, many with national and international reputations, are affiliated with Baptist Health. Baptist Health Quality Network is an integrated network of over 1,000 of these physicians with whom it works to enhance clinical quality. The collaboration with these clinical leaders means more-effective care for patients.
Working with an Integrated Delivery Network (IDN) has evolved over the years with accounts becoming larger, although fewer in number. Medical device and pharmaceutical sales reps no longer sell directly to pharmacists or physicians as business operations and profit have become as, if not more, important than clinical decisions.
Working successfully with IDNs is dependent upon knowing and understanding which, and how many, types of site of care and decision-makers there are in the organization. This will not include hospitals but also medical groups, long-term care, outpatient centers and clinics, specialty pharmacy, and strategy for bundled payments and population health.
