Defining a vision for your employed network that is shared by both physicians and healthcare executives is crucial to your long-term success. Working with physicians to define the attributes of their ideal group defines how the network must evolve to be an asset in the changing marketplace. A shared vision helps executives build relationships with physicians to create a culture of accountability.
The HSG shared vision process produces a description of what the group should look like in 5-10 years. That description generally incorporates these key elements:
- Physician leadership
- Organizational infrastructure
- Patient information management
- Patient experience
- IT analytics
- Growth strategy
- Use of management best practices, and
- Clinical best practices/quality
Clients refer to these vision statements as their network “Constitution,” using it as a governing document as they move forward. The case studies below give more tangible examples of how these vision statements are viewed and utilized.
