Physicians Leading Change for Better Outcomes
Healthcare organizations need physician engagement more today than ever before. Organized performance improvement initiatives can only achieve minimal improvements which are typically not sustainable without physician leadership and involvement of the physician community. Healthcare organizations, whether large academic medical centers, small community hospitals or ambulatory facilities, realize the significant difference there is when physicians participate and lend their support. This presentation will build the framework of the principles of high reliability as they apply to health care organizations and physicians. The discussion will feature a case study which demonstrates how physicians and physician leadership can drive change and achieve excellent outcomes. Lastly, the speaker will focus on six organizational strategies designed to transform organizations to become learning organizations and achieve greater gains from their improvement activities.
