When it comes to big organizational changes, consulting with physician leaders is a critical factor for short-term and long-term success. “I have seen physician engagement serve as an essential ingredient for any major initiative that’s being developed and ultimately implemented by a health system,” says Medical Advantage Executive Consultant Monty Pate, our guest for this episode.
Every decision is consequential to the success of a health system. When project managers or private equity firms move ahead without input from physician leaders, they lack key information to make the best-informed decisions. Enlisting physician leadership is a beneficial change agent for the direction of major change.
When should you approach physicians for insights? Which physicians should you approach and how should you approach them? In this episode of the Medical Advantage Podcast hosted by Technology Consultant Celina DeFigueiredo-Dusseau, we answer all these questions and provide guidance on how to navigate this invaluable relationship with physician leadership.
Monty Pate covers the intricacies and best practices regarding this cooperative relationship, plus real-world examples of the effectiveness of physician leadership.
