Sharp HealthCare Report.
Sharp HealthCare (Sharp) is San Diego’s leading health care provider delivering patient-centered care, the latest medical technology with 2,600 affiliated physicians and 18,000 employees.
Sharp HealthCare’s revenue remained at $3.5 billion in 2017, nearly unchanged from 2016. Sharp has four acute-care hospitals, three specialty hospitals, three affiliated medical groups, and a full spectrum of other facilities and services.
Sharp HealthCare is a California nonprofit public benefit corporation. Sharp, together with its affiliated entities, constitutes a regional integrated healthcare delivery system serving the residents of San Diego County.
Sharp HealthCare has adopted seven pillars of excellence as the foundation for its vision to transform the health care experience. The seven pillars – Quality, Safety, Service, People, Finance, Growth and Community – are a visible testament to the organization’s commitment in making Sharp the best health care system in the universe by achieving excellence in these areas.
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.
