Baylor Health Care: From Integrated Delivery Network to Organized Delivery System
The delivery of health care in the 1990s was focused on a managed care approach, which emphasized wellness and preventive care, as well as the need for providers to survive in a capitated market. Integrated delivery systems (IDSs) emerged to replace hospital systems, and many IDSs strove to promote functional integration in response to these demands. As experience revealed, however, many organizations found their information systems to be “woefully inadequate.” This recognition has led progressively to an evolution from systems focusing primarily on financial and operational functionality to Organized Delivery Systems (ODSs) that incorporate clinical requirements as well as a greater organizational vision and strategy.
