“The physician who shows the most interest, particularly if they have a role in clinical leadership, will be an invaluable resource. They will be your strongest voice in the health system.”

Invest in and embrace physician champions and leaders

physician champion_1200.jpgToday’s physician has a vested interest in the business and organizational side of healthcare. They care about the big picture. Like-minded physicians will trust a physician leader who can see things from the value analysis and value-based purchasing perspective. Concentrate your efforts on embracing physicians who can combine clinical and organizational knowledge at all levels of your hospital or health system. Find leaders who know how to relate to others, are able and willing to both listen and coach other physicians, and are able to maintain control in tense or uncomfortable situations. The physician who shows the most interest, particularly if they have a role in clinical leadership, will be an invaluable resource. They will be your strongest voice in the health system, and working together, you will achieve your mutual goals. They and you will recognize that healthcare cannot evolve without keeping unbiased evidence and quality front and center during decision making, which will drive your initiatives forward.
