Health Care "Coopetition"

 

continued

"HVPA is in the middle of a lot of long weekend retreats trying to decide what their future looks like," says St. Joe's CEO Rob Casalou. Will HVPA's physicians be able to remain independent, or will they find themselves pulled into the "coopetition" between St. Joe's and the U-M? While it's too soon to know for sure, it may be telling that the group's president, Paul Harkaway, is himself no longer independent. In January, Harkaway started work at St. Joe's parent, the Trinity Health System, as vice president of clinical integration and accountable care. His job, a PR person emails, includes "determining the best structure for our relationships with our external physician network.

He'll have plenty to do. Harkaway was hired, Casalou says, "because what we are talking about here [creating physician-hospital networks] is happening with Trinity in every market from here to California to Maryland."

This article has been edited since it appeared in the May 2012 Ann Arbor Observer. Paul Harakaway's status with HVPA has been corrected.    (end of article)
