Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 22, 2012
Becker’s Hospital Review is proud to announce the release of its list, 61 Integrated Health Systems to Know, which showcases the wide variety and high caliber of services offered by some of the country’s top integrated health systems.
The health systems featured on this list have achieved a high level of integration as demonstrated through strong physician alignment. They also address the continuum of care through clinics, rehabilitation centers, psychiatric care facilities, medical groups, accountable care organizations and various other healthcare entities. As the healthcare industry moves from a fee-for-service model to a pay-for-performance system that focuses on quality patient care, these organizations have been at the forefront in providing access to an array of health services beyond direct patient care, such as pharmacies, educational opportunities, management companies and health plans.
Health systems were selected for inclusion on this list based on data from healthcare analytics company SDI, nominations and careful research by the Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team. Health systems do not pay and cannot pay to be included on this list. There are never fees involved in Becker’s Hospital Review lists. Recognized health systems are free to note their inclusion through marketing materials, website promotion, press releases and other media materials without paying a fee.
The full-length edition of the list can be found here: 61 Integrated Health Systems to Know

- Medicare Tax? Health Care for the Elderly? Let’s look at the facts about the proposed Medicare Tax … and a medical care program for the aged that already exists! What’s the hurry here? The supporters of the proposed Medicare Tax would have you believe that passage of this controversial bill is urgent … that persons over 5 are deprived of needed medical care because they can’t pay for it. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Kerr-Mills Law, passed by Congress in 1960 – enabled individual states to guarantee to every elderly person who needs help the health care he or she requires. We call this health program … Health Opportunity for the Elderly. Thousands of people every day are being helped by its generous benefits. And unlike Medicare, which would substantially increase your Social Security Tax payroll deductions, existing programs are being paid for now by a part of your present tax dollar! Medicare? NO. Health Care for the Elderly? YES! ….. 1964 American Medical Association Ad, A5157.
