Confront Change More Effectively in Your Health Care Organization
Change is challenging for all of us, whether you’re a young student entering a new school – or a health care executive seeking to comply with new regulations. Recent neuroscience research suggests our resistance to change may be due to how the sections of our brains work and interact. We may literally be hardwired to avoid change, or at least approach it cautiously!Our two featured articles in this newsletter highlight recommended best practices when confronting two types of increasingly common changes in health care. In “Eight Questions to Ask When Using Care Coordination Technology with Community Service Providers,” Allie Freed recommends a sequence of steps for providers when establishing and/or solidifying relationships with local community service partners. In “Expanding Medical Foundation Successfully Integrates Specialty Physician Practices,” Hanna Woldu shares how she helped lead the operational and cultural integration of two disparate physician practices with a larger health care organization.These articles also demonstrate a truism of change: it can be made easier when partnering with others.
