Integration Goals


  1. 6 Strategic Growth: Target growth in select services and geographies, both independently and through strategic partnerships, in a manner that expands the institution's access and influence, and standardizes care.
  2. 6.1 Expand current clinical networks for the four key Institutes (Cancer, Heart, Neurosciences, Neonatology) regionally, nationally and internationally and advance the Institute structure across Johns Hopkins All Children's missions and partners.
  3. 6.2 Continue to pursue a "neutrality without exclusivity" model with other health systems and is open to evaluating any initiatives which are economically sustainable and improve the overall health status of the region's children.
  4. 6.3 Continue to pursue relationships which allow Johns Hopkins All Children's to provide lower-complexity inpatient pediatric care (i.e., management of NICUs, EC, pediatric surgery) at local hospitals throughout the Tampa Bay area and regional population centers.
  5. 6.4 Create a robust, aligned physician network with targeted pediatric physician group(s) and specialists through a clinically integrated network or similar model.
  6. 6.5 Evaluate and develop the distribution and scope of services provided at Johns Hopkins All Children's outpatient care locations and other community-based locations, to ensure these are meeting patient needs and supporting the organizational mission.
  7. 6.6 Leverage telehealth capabilities to expand access to Johns Hopkins All Children's services in other geographies.
  8. 6.7 Strategically position Johns Hopkins All Children's to attract high-profile, clinically complex cases nationally and internationally allowing Johns Hopkins All Children's to expand its brand and clinical expertise.
  9. 6.8 Assume a leadership position in the formation of national and state-wide children's collaborative focused on improving and demonstrating consistent high-quality care for children in Florida.
  10. 6.9 Significantly expand the base of pediatric physicians who are both mission and financially aligned, through a defined range of structures/platforms, even if these physicians continue to provide the majority of their care in non-Johns Hopkins All Children's facilities.
  11. 7 Population Health: Create the capabilities necessary to manage the care of chronic patient populations and to thrive in a reimbursement environment which emphasizes value over volume.
  12. 7.1 Develop a range of chronic care management programs focused on "high-utilizer" children, beginning with patient cohorts which may have more than 1,000 children in the Johns Hopkins All Children's service area with similar illnesses and/or co-morbidities. Facilitate discussions between Johns Hopkins All Children's and Medicaid to promote information sharing and explore future care delivery models
  13. 7.2 Develop the foundational elements of a data-driven organization which encourages the sharing of information across all key stakeholders.
