Hello from Shore Health System.

For those of you not associated with Shore Health System, I am Joseph P Ross, President and CEO of Shore Health System of Maryland.  We serve the five mid shore counties of Maryland’s Eastern Shore.  We are about 2000 employees, 260 physicians and hundreds of volunteers.  We are a community hospital based health system offering a full range of health care services.

I decided to start this blog as an effort to communicate directly with our constituency in a period of change in health care as well as a period of rapid change within our health system.  I have many issues I hope to discuss in the coming months.  I also welcome questions and comments.  As I am not of the digital generation, I will review all comments and questions and comment on them in subsequent postings.  There are several things I am working on at this time which I would like to start with.

First, Shore Health System became an affiliate of the University of Maryland Medical System several years ago.  The opportunities for improvement which derives from this relationship are generally, access to physicians, access to capital and the ability to plan more comprehensively.  Through our planning process, we have committed to the development of a Regional Distributed Network of Services.  At the center of this network is envisioned a new regional medical center to be located on land provided by Talbot county on the North side of Easton, MD.  We have been working for approximately one year on the specifics of this project.  We have developed a proposed size, a first draft site plan and are now ready to proceed with the town and county on annexation of the land into Easton and the completion of a zoning process to allow the development of a health services campus for the regional medical center.  As I get more comfortable with blogging, I will figure out how to share the site plan with you.

The second issue is the current debate on national health care reform.  Many people as me what it means to Shore Health System.  I have to honestly answer that I dont know just yet.  It is not easy to begin to develop strategy until we have a bill signed by the President.  It is obvious that many people have strong opinions of where we should go as a society. That we need some level of change is obvious to those of us working in the system every day.  Of course, great strides have been made in the area of coverage and access, but we still have 40 million or so people without coverage.  There is not a clear understanding of who the uninsured are but they fall in several categories, including the working uninsured, undocumented workers, people between jobs, adults living at or near the poverty level and others.  We have made good progress on childrent through the S chip program but we rely on the safety net delivery system for what care the other groups get.  Within the working uninsured, health care events are a cause of  financial difficulties. We need some approach to each of these groups for the future.  One difficult political point is the idea of a public option for coverage.  I believe it would help with some of the problem.  We have to recognize that as a coverage, it will suffer from adverse selection meaning those with the greatest needs will be the people who will be most incented to use the public option.  It is difficult to know what impact the public option would have on the private insurance market.  Many people are concerned with that  the public option would force the private carriers out of the market.  I think the profit potential will still be enough to keep the private carriers in the market, although with a new competitor.

Another area of great discussion is the issue of rationing care.  All of us have a stake in this issue.  Individual values and freedom of choice must be part of any USA health care system.  That said, we do need a system of rationale care for the future.  Consistent evidence-based care delivery will accomplish this goal.

Much of what could be improved about health care is not being discussed in the current debate.  The most obvious is tort reform and how much care is delivered as an effort to defend decisionmaking by care givers.  Another is the area of personal responsibility for one’s health. Regular exercise and a moderate diet, moderation in alcohol and reductions in the use of illegal substances would also make a major contribution to reducing health care costs.

In a future posting I will spend some time on things that we are doing as a health care system to improve quality and reduce costs through better clinical programs and evidence based protocol management.  I look forward to hearing from you.
