Inova Health System Report.
Inova Health Systems (Inova) is an integrated, not-for-profit health care delivery system that owns, operates and manages clinical, educational, research, and hospital facilities located in Northern Virginia, serving Northern Virginia, the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, and contiguous counties in Virginia and Maryland. Inova’s six hospitals include more than 1,700 licensed beds and 16,000 employees.
Inova encompasses the full array of health services, including the area’s only Level 1 Trauma Center and Level IV neonatal intensive care unit. Inova is also home to nationally and internationally recognized Inova Heart and Vascular Institute (IHVI), Inova Schar Cancer Institute, Inova Translational Medicine Institute (ITMI) focused on genomics research, Inova Neuroscience Institute and Inova Children’s Hospital.
Inova includes a group of primary care and specialty physicians operating as the Inova Medical Group. Inova formed a Population Health division in 2013 and operates a clinically integrated physician network.
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.
