My last LinkedIn article addressed the importance of involving physicians in transformational change. I emphasized the need to redouble efforts to support physicians, elevate physician leaders, and keep physicians at the forefront of major initiatives.
What I didn’t discuss is the commitment those of us in the C-Suite must make to create an environment and culture where physicians can thrive. For decades, we’ve been talking about the need to improve physician-hospital relationships. While discussion is a step in the right direction, the truth is that we, as an industry, should have made more progress by now.
