Care Coordination Needs CEOs



Inefficiency in hospital and health systems used to be rewarded—not willfully, but because there wasn't a good business reason to change things. Now there are financial incentives for care coordination, which takes teamwork—and leadership.

I am always amazed at how long a process takes from inception to implementation. In observation for over 20 years as a nurse, healthcare workers have been touting team work, to engage critical thinking skills within any area of the hospital, to reveal the "silos and their spawn" along with creating therapeutic environments between professions. Hopefully, the grasp for the bottom line has taken on a new level of appreciation just as transparency in healthcare is narrowing the gap between the have and have nots.
