What Initium Health Brings To China’s Health Care

China has a fragmented delivery system composed of both public and private players, in which provisions of preventative, primary, acute and tertiary care, and rehabilitative services are disjointed and lack coordination.

Initium has experience in models which align and incentivize multiple stakeholders to achieve common quality and financial metrics. In the U.S., most providers are still in the early stage of the transitions to care management strategies required to thrive. The Initium team has accumulated first-hand knowledge from working with multiple payers and coordinating care in multiple states in a manner that supports patient and provider goals.

China is engendering a hub-spoke model and establishing a two-way referral process between large hospitals and lower-tier facilities like Community Health Centers (CHCs); however, most CHCs lack the medical resources and capacities to provide quality patient-centered care. Healthcare expansion must account for the need for more health facilities, specialized services, and care coordination at different tiers of the health system.

The Initium team, with a proven track record in developing infrastructure, providing logistics, and offering management support in care coordination across multiple organizations, can help to establish a fully integrated care delivery system in anticipation of the introduction of value-based purchasing and/or capitation models by the Ministry of Health.
