Physician Wellness Comes First - It is the Foundation for Engagement and Performance

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

 

For over 50 years, hundreds of research studies have demonstrated this consistent hierarchy
-
Physician Wellness is the Foundation for Physician Engagement and Performance.


The Health, Happiness and Wellbeing of your Physicians and Staff will determine:

The Quality of their care
The Quantity of care they can deliver
The Safety of that care and the number of Medical Errors

NOTICE:
PHYSICIAN WELLBEING COMES FIRST 

WELLBEING begets ENGAGEMENT which begets PERFORMANCE
IN THAT ORDER
