Caring for Chronically Ill Patients—A Systematic Approach to Managing Complexity
Caring for chronically ill patients is one of the greatest challenges facing healthcare today. Axiom Consulting Partners, working with Vizient and leading academic medical centers, outlines a systematic approach towards managing the complexity of caring for the chronically ill.
In this video “A Breakthrough Approach to Managing Care for the Chronically Ill Population,” Garrett Sheridan, Axiom’s president, points out that there are five foundational elements associated with effectively caring for the chronically ill, including:
- Roles and responsibilities within a team-based approach to care
- Key interactions and information flows
- Workforce composition and staffing model
- Tools and technologies
The American healthcare system faces unique challenges in its efforts to provide quality care to patients across the country. Hospitals and medical systems in general are under great pressure to reduce costs, while at the same time continually enhancing the quality of care.
As a leader in business consulting for healthcare, Axiom Consulting Partners believes that successful execution — based on a clear strategy and an unwavering alignment of capabilities, process and talent — is the prescription for success.

Collaboration is Key
At Axiom Consulting Partners, we strongly believe in the power of collaborating with clients to find the right business-performance solutions. This includes seeking input and strategic insights from physicians and physician executives, acknowledging the value of their clinical perspective. No long-range strategy for improved healthcare is possible without the support of medical providers.
This collaborative approach also encompasses close working relationships with hospital management and clinical staff. Working alongside all relevant stakeholders ensures that the best aspects of your institutional legacy remain intact, even as we forge new strategies for the future.
From Strategy to Execution
Recognizing that all hospitals and healthcare companies are unique, Axiom Consulting Partners offers services tailored to each client’s specific needs. We can transfer our knowledge and experience directly, helping build management alignment along the way. Or we can conduct the analysis and devise strategic recommendations on our own.
Whatever the situation, we focus on preparing clients for strategy execution from the outset of a project. We help our healthcare clients connect the dots between strategic intent and the organizational model and talent needed to successfully execute the plan.
In an era when every aspect of healthcare seems to be hotly debated in the public realm, is it really possible to build a model that’s both financially viable and effective in providing quality care to a large and diverse population? With our demonstrated track record of creating and implementing profitable growth strategies, Axiom Consulting Partners believes the answer is “Yes.”
