We must think to ourselves, are we being intentional about the physician experience we are creating? More so than ever before, we are encountering daily challenges at an unmatched and accelerating pace. We want to create an environment for our physicians and APP’s to practice that is by design—not by default. As trusted caregivers for our patients during their most vulnerable times, we have an opportunity to evolve the experience so that every person can receive the best possible care, starting with the engagement of our physicians.
Physician engagement is one of the most frequently cited challenges across healthcare organizations, and we know that burnout, moral injury and compassion fatigue are at an uncomfortably high level. So, where do we start?
We believe that by supporting an excellent place to practice, encouraging physicians and APP’s, and removing barriers, we can foster and restore purpose and joy in the practice of medicine. We created the Physician Engagement Guide to provide an action-oriented resource for senior leaders, department managers, medical staff, and executive leaders to help them retain and engage the best physicians, providers, and team members. The material presented in this guide is based on our work with over 600 organizations and thousands of physicians, helping them measure and improve physician engagement.
Now more than ever before, you are working to do more with less and to take engagement to the next level. Our hope is that this book will provide you with the inspiration, strategies and tactics you need for success.
