High pay will get you warm bodies who happen to be physicians. Physician engagement requires a culture and governance that promotes and truly engages physicians in decision-making. Showing respect for their input, creating ways and means on soliciting that input and reimbursing all staff for better work, not high volume are the secrets to success.
