The Doctor's Orders for Engaging Physicians to Drive Improvements

 

Physicians drive the majority of all quality and cost decisions, yet reimbursement pressures, competing time pressures, misaligned incentives, and a lack of credible data often make engaging clinicians in improvement work one of the biggest challenges in healthcare.  

Join David Wild, MD, MBA, and Jack Beal, JD, as they explore how to spread data to the edges of the organization and engage physicians in leading a continuum of improvement across an entire organization.   

Wednesday, February 12     
2:00 - 3:00 PM ET

During this webinar, our presenters will:

  • Identify the levels of physician leadership in your organization you can engage to drive improvement.
  • Pinpoint the types of data and information of most interest to physician leaders.
  • Propose several ways data to use data to engage physicians in leading improvement work.
  • Help you develop at least one mechanism you can use to better engage physicians in improvement work at your organization.
