Building Healthcare Collaboration
Reap the benefits of collaboration at your organization.
Dr. Cohn works with hospital leaders and physicians who want to work more interdependently to increase revenues, cut expenses, and improve clinical outcomes.
Collaboration builds a culture that transforms performance and empowers outstanding clinical and financial outcomes. Healthcare collaboration helps dedicated professionals develop a shared vision and reconnect with the values that attracted them to healthcare in the first place.
Do you want:
- To have a clearer sense of how to move forward with your medical staff in the face of healthcare reform uncertainty?
- Increased revenues from decreased patient outmigration?
- Lower expenses from improved efficiency and effectiveness?
- A better practice environment that results in improved recruiting and retention?
- Enhanced teamwork and a virtuous cycle of improved clinical and financial outcomes?
Collaboration is healthcare’s low-hanging fruit. Harvest it today.
Problems Dr. Cohn can help you solve:
- Are suboptimal physician-hospital relations hurting your bottom line and affecting your clinical outcomes?
- Are you frustrated that tools and techniques that once worked for you in the past no longer achieve their desired objectives?
- Are physicians and administrators at your institution talking at each other rather than communicating with one another?
- Is it getting harder to entice the right people to show up at and participate in your meetings?
How Dr. Cohn works
- Helps hospital leaders frame the problems that they face and the outcomes that they seek
- Performs an in-person assessment of physician leaders, asking probing questions, such as:
- How likely are you to encourage patients, family, and colleagues to receive care at your hospital
- What are the reasons for your evaluation
- What are your top three recommendations to improve the practice environment here
- Presents findings at a multidisciplinary gathering of participating physicians, hospital leaders, and board members and works with them to develop a focused action plan for more interdependent care in which physicians share ownership
- Empowers an interdisciplinary team of physicians, hospital leaders,and allied healthcare professionals to implement the action plan in a focused, timely fashion that builds transparency and trust and improves communication and collaboration with all parties
Recommendations generally include performance improvements rather than a list of capital-intensive budget items. In return for giving practicing physicians a say in clinical priority setting, hospital executives are able to enlist physicians to attend meetings and come to consensus on priorities.
