Understanding the Healthcare Landscape 2018

Much about the American healthcare ecosystem has to do with the personalities of the professionals that shape that landscape. One of the  ways that people keep track of that is by checking out Becker’s Hospital Review.

From the CEO, CIO to the CMO & CMIO, we are able to gain insight into how a healthcare provider organization will function based on the mindset that the leadership brings with them. I’ve been at companies when the culture of the new leader has transformed the organization entirely. For some, it’s to wake a sleeping giant and for others, it has stretched it’s capabilities beyond the limit in the pursuit to be #1. There was one organization I worked at where the VP of Revenue Cycle was a consultant and brought in his consulting firm to run the department. That changed the culture of that organization so much so that people could not recognize the company from the one that they had worked in even a few months earlier. This was a radical and fundamental change to the way that that organization had worked for as long as anyone remembered and was quite a shock to the system as a whole. That’s why I encourage you to check out the Becker’s link above and keep that as essential reading for a healthcare professional.
