Physicians Excel at Managing Change, but Want a Seat at the Table
Since our founding in 1999, Studer Group's mission statement has always included physicians. While our mission remains the same, in today's environment it has become increasingly more complex to provide a great place for physicians to practice medicine.
No matter what sort of contractual arrangement an organization has with their physicians, there are greater complexities with things like cost pressures and transparency of data that are impacting not only the organization, but physicians as well. Our founder, Quint Studer, is working on his next book specifically written for physicians regarding the future they have inherited. In it, he addresses the fact that physicians are working in an environment much different from when they first began practicing medicine.
The good news is that in the research and writing process, we've learned what works well and what right looks like. What organizations need more than ever is close alignment with physicians and hospital leadership. This includes having systems in place that provide physicians with direct feedback, key measurement data (that is accurate and transparent), and input from physicians on key organizational initiatives.
This issue of Hardwired Results® shares results, best practices, and "how-tos" from organizations from around the country leading us into the future. It also addresses key focus areas such as physician engagement, reducing no-shows, tips on running a great practice and what CG CAHPS means for your organization.
We hope you find it helpful in your journey of physician alignment, integration and engagement and will also let us know your feedback and input too. Thank you for making a difference not only for those who receive care but also for those who practice medicine.
Yours in service,
