The Quadruple Aim

Guiding Principle:

The only authentic foundation for high quality, low cost medical care and an optimal patient experience
-- is the health and wellbeing of the doctors and staff who provide the care.

The Quadruple Aim
Provides a Triple Competitive Advantage

Organizations who take better care of their providers and staff, create three distinct advantages over their regional competition.

1) You will become the Provider of Choice to local patients and local payors. Patients will notice your caring and quality. Payors will see superior quality metrics. You will stand out from the crowd.

2) You will become the Employer of Choice for the local unaffiliated doctors because of your culture and more efficient systems of care. It will be easier to recruit and retain quality providers.

3) You will become a more Nimble, Stable and Adaptable Organization going forward for two simple reasons. Your Quadruple Aim focus provides the enterprise with naturally higher levels of trust and engagement and much lower turnover rates.

Does the Healthcare Industry Exploit Doctors?

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

Does the Healthcare Industry Exploit Doctors? 

Dr. Danielle Ofri - author of the book What Doctors Feel - wrote a groundbreaking piece in the New York Times this week entitled: The Business of Health Care Depends on Exploiting Doctors and Nurses

In the article she writes:
"Counting on nurses and doctors to suck it up because you know they won’t walk away from their patients is not just bad strategy. It’s bad medicine." 
We couldn't agree more.

Unfortunately, her article then crashes and burns in an impossible recommendation that half of all US Healthcare Administrators be fired, because:
"If we converted even half of those salary lines to additional nurses and doctors, we might have enough clinical staff members to handle the work."
Duh! AND I think we agree no organization is going to take her up on that change in business model.

Physician Leadership Video Training - Leadership's #1 Skill

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

What is the #1 skill of quality physician leadership?

The answer may surprise you.

What I can tell you is that being a great clinician does not teach you this skill. In fact, our medical education sets us up to be naturally ineffective leaders.

I am not just talking about physicians in official leadership positions here. All physicians are leaders. We all have people who look up to us for guidance, answers, wisdom and vision. So let's get you the skill set you need to do a great job.

Once you learn this key skill 

  • You will see your team perform better than ever
  • And you won't be working nearly as hard as you do now

In the brief video below you will learn this master skill and the "Lone Ranger" test to know exactly when you need to throw it into gear.
