DEVELOPING
HIGH-PERFORMANCE ORGANIZATIONS

We help hospitals deliver excellent patient care through our expertise in agile organizational design, developing high-performing cultures, and process improvement.

MANAGING CHANGE REQUIRES PROFESSIONAL EXPERTISE AND RIGOR

Up to 75 percent of organizational change programs fail, according to multiple studies. The good news is that when an organization uses a scientifically based, professional approach to change, the odds for successful transformation are significantly increased.

To prepare an organization for large-scale change means challenging the collective mindset and current ways of doing things. With our proven, hospital-centric approach and tools, we help organizations make a successful transition to a culture of excellence and continuous improvement.

HELPING ORGANIZATIONS PREPARE FOR TRANSFORMATION

People and culture

Hospitals depend on their people. That’s why it’s important to establish a culture that motivates, aligns around a patient-centric purpose, and allows for growth.

We help organizations establish best-in-class talent processes for finding, developing, and retaining the right talent and building their capabilities.

Structure

To improve communication and teamwork, hospitals today are getting away from traditional silos and top-down hierarchical models. We help these hospitals structure their workplace around the patient pathway in multidisciplinary set-ups such as integrated practice units (IPUs) and pathway teams.

By focusing on patient needs and process flow, you achieve more flexible staffing backed by appropriate skills, enabling employees to work at the top of their qualifications.

Processes

Hospital operations, due to the nature of the work, can easily become inefficient and time consuming. Through our years of transforming hospital operations, we’ve developed an approach that optimizes hospital processes by reducing or eliminating non-value-adding tasks and redundancies for hospital staff.

We also provide support to move many workflow steps into a digital environment, allowing staff to focus on patient-centric tasks and achieve a high level of satisfaction in their jobs.
