Despite having one of the highest health expenditures internationally, the US health system for many years has only achieved average care outcomes. Additionally, the quality of care is not adequately considered in reimbursement processes. Insufficient individual access to medical care, fragmented care structures, as well as the still high number of uninsured Americans, represent great challenges across the nation. Geisinger Health System, an integrated healthcare delivery system located in Pennsylvania which has operated for more than 100 years, has set a goal to counter sprawling healthcare costs with innovative service, insurance, and remuneration structures. Therefore, Geisinger Health System relies in particular on innovations in information technology, which are based on an electronic health record system that spans all institutions. The approach and implementation of in-novations as well as some directive innovations of the Geisinger Health System are examined in this essay. The value added for the patient as well as for Geisinger will also be discussed. Finally, prospects and limitations will be presented to evaluate if and how the innovative thinking of Geisinger Health System can be seen as a beacon for other US healthcare providers.
