Health Provider Services Organization (HPSO)
Health Provider Services Organization of the South Shore is a not-for-profit organization focused on improving and expanding health care access, quality, availability and efficiency.
Our mission is to ensure that we:
- Align the interests of the community, physicians
- Provide physicians a voice in strategic planning.
- Ensure a legacy of top caliber physicians.
HPSO is a subsidiary of South Shore Health and Educational Corporation. It is governed by a Board of five Medical Staff-elected physicians and four Hospital-appointed administrators, supported by an executive director. HPSO represents the entirety of South Shore Hospital’s Medical Staff members and is not predisposed to any one particular type of physician or practice model.
To deliver on our mission, HPSO is focused on three priorities to more fully engage and align South Shore Hospital Medical Staff members in building a System of Care:
South Shore Clinical Integration Network (SSCIN) is a dynamic group of physicians and other care providers who represent South Shore Hospital’s broad Medical Staff. The SSCIN’s purpose is to strengthen clinical processes, communication and coordination to improve quality, efficiency and the patient care experience. Thirty physician and administrative leaders meet regularly in pursuit of a common goal – to demonstrate how the consistent adoption of agreed-upon clinical protocols can positively impact both patients and providers.
Professional Leadership Development Series: HPSO is committed to helping South Shore Hospital’s Medical Staff members build their leadership skills to successfully navigate changes in health care delivery and payments. HPSO has initiated the Professional Leadership Development Series and a Leadership Academy facilitated by the Advisory Board. Both programs are helping physicians develop the skills they need to navigate and drive change.
Strategic Planning: HPSO as an organization is accountable to develop and deliver on its own strategic goals, and to ensure those remain aligned with the South Shore Health and Educational Corporation’s strategic goals. HPSO remains dedicated to providing opportunities to physicians to ensure they continue to play a key role in developing strategic initiatives that will result in building an improved system of care. The HPSO programs and governance structure outlined on this website were created to drive physician engagement.
