Clinical Integration Success Stories

There are many great examples of clinical integration occurring across the South Shore Health System. Multi-disciplinary clinical teams are collaborating to strengthen clinical processes to improve quality, efficiency, and the patient care experience - thus working to achieve the Triple Aim.

HPSO is creating a repository of these examples on the Medical Staff Website. If you have a clinical integration initiative you want to share, please send an email to HPSO@sshosp.org.
