ON THE FRONT LINES OF ACTION
Provider organizations across the country agree that a focus on performance is essential under any future market scenario. With the stakes higher than ever before, previous, incremental approaches to performance improvement will not be sufficient to achieve the transformational change needed to succeed moving forward. Clinical and operating models must be fundamentally redesigned based on leading practice; and next-generation, sustainable approaches to performance improvement must be woven into the fabric of the organization’s culture.
