Service Line Management

Introduction :
Many believe the traditional method of organizing health services creates barriers for optimizing the
delivery of care. New models are being established using more integrated, multidisciplinary, and
coordinated care approaches centered on the patient. Toward that aim, clinical service lines are an
evolving management model being used in many organizations. Clinical service lines are a deliberate
grouping of patient services around specific disease states or specialties (e.g., cardiovascular,
orthopedics, oncology) to support evidence-based practice, cost-effectiveness, and improve the
patient experience. New leadership models have been established with service lines introducing dyad
partnerships consisting of individuals with clinical and administrative experience to work as a team in
leading and managing the business line.
This course will include an introduction to the history and drivers that led to the development of clinical
service lines, their structural models, benefits, and challenges. Modules will specifically address the
four service line domains of:
1. Strategic Planning
2. Organizational Structure and Leadership
3. Quality Performance
4. Financial and Operating Performance

The Question:

Please support your response by referencing and citing any assigned reading, other evidence-based management publications, and your professional experience.
