Reap the rewards of physician engagement at your organization
Healthcare professionals are experiencing declining revenues despite continuing pressure to cut costs and improve quality, safety, and service. Healthcare Collaboration works with hospital leaders to engage physicians to work more inter-dependently to improve clinical and financial performance.
Collaboration can transform your culture from the ground up. Healthcare Collaboration makes it possible for your dedicated professionals to reconnect with the values that attracted them to healthcare in the first place. Collaboration is healthcare’s low-hanging fruit. Harvest it today.
Dr. Cohn was instrumental in a successful medical staff planning process at Cottage Hospital. He gained the trust of the physicians very early on and helped them establish important clinical priorities for our hospital. Ron Werft, President and CEO, Santa Barbara Cottage Health System
Ken earned the respect of hospital leaders and physicians for his understanding of business processes and his outstanding ability to communicate. In part, his success is due to his years as a clinician, which gives him a knowledgeable, genuine physician perspective. The service he provided went far beyond the scope of the project. For example, he mentored a section chief and obtained for him profit and loss figures that the section chief had never seen before. He was instrumental in helping that section chief craft a bold, far reaching presentation. He consistently reached out to the other presenters and provided them with invaluable assistance. Ken’s understanding of the problems facing hospitals and physicians in these challenging times is outstanding. He continually offers succinct, timely advice and brilliant insight. I recommend hiring him because he has done an outstanding job for us on this crucial project. Dr. Michael Ivy, VP for Quality and Safety, Bridgeport Hospital
Dr. Kenneth Cohn worked with five change-challenged groups of physicians to improve communication within their sections and come to consensus on a vision for the future. Ken’s grounding in clinical surgery, which he maintains by providing locum tenens coverage in New England, allowed him to build trust and credibility rapidly. He used humor effectively to decrease tension and to maintain perspective and accomplished things that none of us would have thought possible. Dr. Michael Peetz, Director of Medical Affairs, North Colorado Medical Center
In return for giving practicing physicians a say in clinical priority setting, hospital executives are able to engage physicians to improve care for their communities.
Thanks very much for facilitating our Leadership Retreat. Comments from our participants included: “Excellent presentation. By far, the best we’ve had in years; very powerful to have a doctor with such great presentation skills; bring Ken back to speak again.” Most importantly, you connected very well with our physicians and Board members both on and off the stage. In this decade of transformation, you gave our physicians hope and helped us convey that we need to work together proactively to improve care for our community. John T. Gribbin, CEO, CentraState Medical Center
The audience commented on how your suggestions were so practical and easy to apply to any practice setting. You provided great examples on how to communicate with physicians and how to align organizational goals with their practice. You have exceeded my expectations! I would recommend you to any professional group considering you as a keynote speaker. Jill Berger-Fiffy, MHA, CMPE, Program Chairperson, Northern New England MGMA
Thanks very much for facilitating our medical staff-board-hospital leadership retreat on improving physician engagement. With the looming reimbursement changes, effective medical staff engagement is a critical success factor. As a result of your work with us, we now have a working definition of engagement and a clear next-steps list to move forward. I thought that the retreat went great! Dr. Dale Carroll, SVP for Clinical Effectiveness, Rockingham Memorial Hospital
I really enjoyed the recent ACHE seminar Practical Strategies for Engaging Physicians, which has jump-started me in many ways, starting with rounding with each staff doctor. It has already paid dividends. Sometimes the simplest, most common-sense behaviors are the ones we forget! Michelle Rumbaut, COO, Guadalupe Regional Medical Center
