And spending time on research takes away time from caring directly for patients which generates additional revenue.
Demonstrate greater value in the health care system. Follow Johns Hopkins Medicine. We are leading the change in medicine. We take care of the sickest, most complex patients. Instead of sitting on the sidelines and waiting to see how reform plays out, we are finding ways to bend the cost curve in health care while at the same time ensuring a greater focus on education, research, quality and prevention.
If the margins shrink, then we need a bigger footprint to attract more patients. But this trend to cut costs could threaten our clinical volumes. If these measures lead to decreased clinical margins, it will challenge all three pieces of our mission, at a time of already-shaky federal funding for research.
The reconstruction of a hip after infection is much more resource-intensive than replacing a hip in a healthy patient. Ensure we diversify our revenue streams and care venues international, ambulatory, insurance, online courses, etc. This round the clock care accounts for about 60 percent of the increased cost of academic medicine, versus community medicine.
Teaching while we provide care requires us, by definition, to be a little less efficient.
At Johns Hopkins Medicine, our vision, "Together, we will deliver the promise of medicine," is supported by our mission to improve the health of the community and the world by setting the standard of excellence in medical education, research and clinical care.
Over the next several years, this mission will be challenged because as an academic medical center AMCwe are a high-cost provider of health care.
To improve value, we need to increase quality while reducing costs by providing care more efficiently. About one-quarter of the added cost comes from the fact that we cross-subsidize our education and research missions from clinical revenues.
So we have to adapt, especially here in Maryland, where an overhaul of the Medicare waiver system is going to change how hospitals in the state are reimbursed.
After all, while we deliver a great deal of specialty care, a significant portion of our inpatients are admitted through the emergency room. These are the broad strokes and we are making tangible, significant progress with our five-year strategic planwhich specifically guides our business strategies and decisions in order to advance our legacy of innovation and excellence in patient care, research and innovation.
To ensure we thrive in a changing health care environment, we need to: We need to find ways to lead in population health, keeping large numbers of people in our regions well.
We have to be able to deliver a high level of complex care seven days a week, 24 hours a day—a huge cost that a community hospital does not have. In addition, new payment schemes that make patients pay more out of pocket to receive treatment at a prestigious academic medical center will impact whether patients choose us.Leading Change in Health Care.
