The AHA’s Physician Alliance, the American Organization of Nurse Executives, a subsidiary of AHA, and the American Association for Physician Leadership have released “A Model for Clinical Partnering: How Nurse and Physician Executives Use Synergy as Strategy.” The report reflects learnings from chief nursing officer and chief medical officer partnership – or dyad – models that maintain individual roles while moving organizations beyond typical, silo management styles.
