How to drive repeatable improvement through uniformity and greater transparency

Resource-stretched health care organizations face significant challenges in the post-pandemic environment. Staffing shortages and the shifting financial landscape can make it difficult to drive continuous, repeatable improvement in quality, safety, and patient experience. 

The challenges are amplified across larger health systems striving to optimize performance, consistency, and efficiency across all areas of operations. Multiple operating models can result in different sets of metrics for outcomes, multiple points of contact, and a variety of delivery systems. 

Developing a “systemness” approach to this situation can help efficiently align initiatives and maximize resources, resulting in greater uniformity and transparency. 

Join us as we explore the value of systemness approaches to these issues and why it is important to develop new ways of thinking to build trust with clinical teams that will drive powerful, lasting change.
