Creating a New Kind of Doctor
We recruit and train physician leaders as comfortable taking on systemic challenges in health as caring for individual patients.
Discovery to Impact — Faster
We reward creative thinking and encourage rapid experimentation, using collaborative programs to speed promising research to market.
Improving Care. Improving Health.
We’re here to make health — including health care — better. The end goal is a complete revolution in how people get and stay healthy.

About the Program

The two-day Immersion Program in Value-Based Health Care is held throughout the year and brings together like-minded clinicians, payers/purchasers, digital health companies and others who are interested in health transformation related to musculoskeletal care. Engage with leaders from the Musculoskeletal Institute — affiliated with Dell Med’s Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care — during sessions showcasing how to put value-based care models into practice.

The curriculum includes an introduction to the process of developing integrated practice units (IPUs), an exercise and presentation on alternative payment models for IPUs, an interactive discussion on patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) and a huddle by the multidisciplinary, lower-extremity IPU.

Participants get a behind-the-scenes look at the Musculoskeletal Institute space and are introduced to a clinical team huddle. During the clinic tour, providers are available to answer questions about working on a multidisciplinary team and offer their perspective on the care models.

The program is developed with health care professionals in mind. This includes providers, payers, business managers and more.

If you have questions, email the team.

Since returning from the Musculoskeletal Institute immersion program, we have begun to reorganize into an integrated practice unit model to enhance the role of our physician extenders and to help provide more patient-centered care, even when (actually, especially when) surgery was not the best way to make a patient better.

The Musculoskeletal Institute Approach

The Musculoskeletal Institute is designed to help people get and stay healthy. With an eye toward patient-centered design, the institute developed new models of care delivery to maximize patient outcomes and address a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions.

The model includes multidisciplinary care teams that specialize in specific conditions (e.g., osteoarthritis, back pain, rheumatologic conditions, etc.). From surgeons to chiropractors to social workers, the teams include experts across all disciplines that support the treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions — all in real time and in one space

The Immersion Program in Value-Based Health Care teaches participants about the philosophy behind this approach and demonstrates how it works on a day-to-day basis.

The Immersion Program in Value-Based Heath Care illustrated the importance of providing patients with comprehensive musculoskeletal care in one initial visit and capturing outcomes that can improve future health care delivery and outcomes. From my experience, I am eager to incorporate value-based health care principles because Dell Med has proven that value-based delivery can make a significant impact on physical function and mental health [for patients].
