About the Physician Engagement Initiative

You can’t buy ‘buy-in’

The shift toward accountable care and new payment mechanisms has put new emphasis on physician engagement, but hospitals and health systems are struggling to achieve those partnerships, finding that better alignment of financial incentives is simply not enough. Economics alone cannot overcome the entrenched practice patterns and mindsets that obstruct collaboration and integration.

Only engagement in the larger organization’s well-being and strategic objectives can cement physicians’ trust that a commitment to the organization will best advance their personal goals, too. There is also a demonstrated connection between staff engagement and key performance measures for today’s tougher operating environment—from reduced operating costs to revenue growth to service quality.

The Physician Engagement Initiative pairs a rigorous and action-oriented survey platform with a suite of change management resources to engage physicians in improving organizational performance and advancing strategic goals.
