As the layers of COVID-19 chaos and disruption march through your life and practice, you have a choice on where you focus your attention.

You could play defense -- cover your eyes, nose, ears and mouth and hang on - white knuckle your way to the light at the end of the tunnel or even pray for a rescue.

If that's what you choose, inevitably someone else will draw up your new job description in the wake of the pandemic and tell you what to do - once again. 

Or

WE INVITE YOU to our next Practice Reset Online Workshop. Whether you want to tweak, reset or even escape your current practice, the chaos of 2020 and COVID-19 means there has never been a better time to get started than right now.

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.

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.
