AlignmentIn this compelling book, physicians Morton Rapoport and Stephen Schimpff describe how a failing university hospital in Baltimore became a thriving academic medical center and the flagship of a nine hospital system. The story is compelling because it demonstrates the absolute importance of establishing alignment between the hospital and the affiliated medical school. But that was not enough; alignment was also necessary with the faculty physicians since they were the ones who developed strong clinical programs and brought patients to the hospital; with state government which ultimately assisted in recapitalizing the facilities; with business and community leaders that assisted with support; with the rate setting commission which was critical for establishing adequate revenues and with many others.
