Building and Leading Effective Teams
Gain the knowledge and support skills needed to build a successful team in a health care organization. Understand not only the principles of change management but also learn to utilize techniques to build buy-in. See how successful leaders recruit, select and retain top clinicians through effective coaching and training. Explore the use of surveys, case studies, and role-playing to apply the skills learned.
Developing a Business Plan
Health care organizations hesitate to invest in initiatives without fully understanding the likely return on investments. It is common for organizations to demand a business plan to justify the expense of new projects and ventures. And it is essential for physician leaders to understand business plans; including each key element of a plan. Learn to draft business plans for new programs, projects and ventures for existing organizations -- as well as for new business development.
Leading Innovation in Health Care Delivery
These days, the volume-to-value transition in health care requires physician leaders to seek better ways to deliver care. By applying systematic and team-based approaches, they can innovate health care in incremental, achievable steps. This course offers insight into what's behind successful innovation and what it takes to achieve it.
The CMIO-CMO-CIO Partnership
The course explores the role of clinical informatics and how each collaborator – Chief Medical Information Officer, Chief Medical Officer or Chief Information Officer – can improve them. These partnerships often result in better information gathering and improved focus on how to use data to deliver superior care. It also covers the CMIO hybrid’s characteristics and offers support systems for physicians in that role.
