Outcomes for Organizations

By investing in leadership development, organizations realize a deep competitive advantage through alignment and engagement over the long term.

PLI graduates impact the quality of patient care and bottom line by developing a greater capacity to accept ambiguity, be an engaged change agent, lead people collaboratively, and lead change strategies to deliver transformative outcomes. Ultimately, organizations will create a pool of the next generation of engaged physician leaders destined to lead the healthcare transformation.

Outcomes of partnering with PLI include:

Cultural Transformation

Too often leaders design and seek to implement well-intentioned strategies only to ultimately fail due to unfavorable conditions in the organization’s culture. The ability to effectively facilitate cultural transformation is a high-level and high-value leadership skill, and is essential to the successful implementation of change and improvement efforts.

Improved Patient Experience

Healthcare leaders play a critical role in ensuring that their organization consistently delivers on its promise to provide quality care and create exceptional experiences for patients. In order to do so, leaders need a clear understanding of how their actions impact patient satisfaction and what they can do to continually provide healthcare experiences that WOW! Through our programs, leaders learn key strategies for engaging the full healthcare team in creating exceptional patient experiences.

Physician and Organizational Alignment

When the efforts of physicians and hospital leaders are aligned around a common vision and objectives, everyone wins. Costs are reduced, outcomes are improved, and satisfaction on the part of patients and providers. Through PLI, participants learn tools and practices to help build effective physician/administration partnerships and ensure that the efforts of all support and directly contribute to the realization of shared goals, aligning all stakeholders around a common vision and objectives.

Meeting the Needs of Population Health

A study by McKinsey and London School of Economics found that hospitals with the greatest clinician participation in management scored 50% higher in performance than hospitals with a low level of clinical leadership!

Over the past few decades, the paradigm of healthcare has shifted from a focus on physicians, to a focus on patients, and now toward a focus on the health of the population. As providers and organizations begin to embrace and implement Population Health, we see a shift to more coordinated, pro-active, and patient-centric care. The way medicine is practiced is changing and the successful healthcare leaders of today are those on the front edge of these changes. Through PLI experiences, participants learn the latest thinking and best practices in Population Health Management and the implications for healthcare leadership. This understanding helps them enact strategies to source patients, boost patient schedules, and improve quality scores.

Effective Sales and Marketing Strategies for Modern Healthcare

Thriving in times of economic strain requires leaders that play an active role in promoting and growing their organization. It requires leaders who can accurately assess the concerns of customers and other stakeholders, design offers that connect with those concerns, consistently deliver on their organization’s promise, and leverage existing relationships. Through PLI, leaders will learn key strategies and tactics to help their practice and organization grow, even when markets don’t.

“Organizations that are serious about transformation and have invested in developing leaders experience 2.1 times the revenue growth and 1.8 times the profit margin of their peers”
