4 Ways to Keep Physicians From Leaving

Chelsea Rice, for HealthLeaders Media, February 25, 2013

4. Step up human resource's role
The whole leadership team needs to be focused on creating a highly engaged work environment. You not only want happy physicians, you want happy social workers, case managers—happier everyone—says Flannery. Where you see highly engaged workers, that's where you see higher standards of care.

"Human resources are essential in creating that environment," says Flannery. "In many cases, physicians really never had human resource management and they never had that support. HR professionals have become much more sophisticated over the last decade, and they have a much more significant role they play in creating a positive working environment for physicians."

The objective is not to bend over backwards to accommodate every individual's wish, but to create  a relationship between the organization and the physicians that is positive, productive, professional, and supportive of the physicians and treats them fairly," says Flannery.

Do I liked this article, especially when said you have to get the doctors to be happy and not be what means and want me to answer: be happy inside or outside the hospital?. Every day or only on weekends?. You need to do to be happy?. Does the happiness of the medical guarantees its quality medical?. Do the patients also have to be happy, or have to make happy to the doctor?, happiness of the medical improvement the health of citizens?. Thank you for answering
