Engaging physicians in employed network leadership is critical for organizational success. Whether developing formal leadership roles, dyad management teams, or an advisory council of physician leaders, HSG has valuable experience and insights to help with physician governance and leadership. As the accountability for outcomes and cost grow, engaging physicians in the problem-solving and decision-making processes will grow in importance.

RELATED THOUGHT LEADERSHIP
“We recognized the need to have our physicians and APPs more intimately involved in our operational and strategic conversations if our employed medical group and our health system was going to prosper, and in fact, lead system efforts in terms of growth and care integration. We engaged HSG, whose expertise, support, and generous coaching helped us to launch a Provider Leadership Council and supporting committee structure to tackle the detailed work related to quality, clinical informatics, operational alignment, and finance. As a result of HSG’s guidance, our outcomes improved, provider engagement deepened, and the Council has become one of the most essential committees in our system. Most importantly, HSG fostered a relationship that allowed us to achieve self-sufficiency rather than long term dependence on external consultancy. I am personally grateful for their thoughtful direction, practical approach, and ability to keep us on track so that we could achieve sustainable growth and improvement.”
Paul Hammes – Chief Executive Officer of Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital
…working with HSG allowed us to work beyond the anticipated challenges of ‘management’ trying to create a leadership structure for the physicians. HSG was able to help us and our medical group physicians clarify and codify our understanding of our physician culture and the positive relationship administration already has with our physicians, to help us move ahead with a plan for greater physician involvement in medical group leadership. …a cohesive medical group should make us substantially more responsive and unified in approach.”
