Abstract

Four Denver-area hospitals are adding a new twist to the physician hospital organization concept, banding together to form "The Healthcare Initiative." This new coalition provides these independent institutions with the cost-containment and physician-control benefits of PHOs, while allowing a wider geographical service area. Such arrangements, however, require special information systems planning.
