The superior act of living an effective life lies in the pursuit of excellent vision, to move from where we are to where we ought to be, either as a person or as an organization. A health care leader must motivate the organizational team, find how to work with the associates to effectively dedicate their time and energy to achieve the identified goals and objectives through the established vision. The team members need to buy into the vision, where they are currently doing what the leader envisions, the leader must encourage them, keep them on track and set standards for the team by setting goals and objective, flowing from the vision. This will enable the leader to move the health care organization to the expected performance level within the set time period. The leader must ensure that individual responsibilities of the associates are identified, motivated and resources provided to achieve the identified goals. To pursue the vision, I will lead the development of the health care organization’s strategic alignment of clear goals and objectives, to preserve the core mission and encourage progress toward the envisioned future state. Also, I will encourage and provide the direction for the organization without hindering the development of the goals that we expect to accomplish.
Personal Statement for Administrative Fellowship “He who has health has hope. And he who has hope, has everything.”- Benjamin Franklin. The decision to pursue a lifetime of service within the Healthcare industry was quite easy for me. After witnessing the importance of having exceptional health care first hand, I want to do everything I can to assist others by ensuring that healthcare policies and procedures are followed properly. Without proper health care, a person can feel lost and hopeless. I believe that an Administrative Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital will enable me with the necessary tools to plan, direct, communicate, and govern effectively in a health care facility.
In the healthcare field, there are forces that drive practice and develop change within an organization. There are both internal and external forces in which not one organization is immune to (Kotter, 1996). By establishing a vision of the company, a sense of purpose and direction is created, working towards change within the forces (Huyer, 2014). When people participate in a vision, they work towards a common goal and identify what needs to be changed in order to reach that vision. In this paper, a presentation of Banner Health will be discussed, along with its mission and stakeholders, driving forces, viability, as well as an analysis of forces, a response to change, a vision for change, and an evaluation of change.
Literature Review The health care industry is one of the most dynamic and delicate industries in the U.S. having experienced healthy and substantial changes for the last thirty years most of which have aimed to improve health care management and services delivery to the patients. The changes have enabled the integration of technology into the industry such as in the area of informatics, science and research and payment services and clinical treatments. The health care sector has introduced various changes to address disease and health care management such as the Modernization Act of 2003, the Patient Protection Act and Affordable Act, which aim at improving health provision and most
What are your career goals related to the healthcare field? I have had a passion for becoming a healthcare provider for children for quite a while (for a long time). Children are one of the most important individuals of society because they are the future and will one day be in charge of the world. Their health at a young age is indicative to how their health will be as adults. Childhood has a great effect on how a person turns out to be so I hope to help children I hope to use prevention and education to preserve and restore the health of my patients. My career goals are to prevent children from having to spend time in hospitals or in pain and to help them live out their life and dreams to the fullest extent. Children play a very large role in their families, and when a child becomes sick, the whole family becomes distressed. Pediatricians not only heal children, but they help and prevent a family from suffering. I love medicine and children, and I hope to combine these two passions by becoming a pediatrician.
Apart from relationship management, leadership, professionalism, human-resource management, and business expertise are few other key competencies that are required for a leader aspiring to advance in the field of healthcare. (Karen Gordon-Sosby, personal communication, September 17, 2015)
Healthcare and health information technology (health IT) are undergoing transformative change at an unprecedented pace. Strategic planning has become a major discussion point among CIOs, CTOs, CMIOs, and IT Directors. Whether it is implementing enterprise-wide electronic health record (EHR) systems, working toward compliance with the “meaningful use” EHR Incentive Program, enabling patients’ involvement through PHRs, transitioning to ICD-10, establishing insurance exchanges, becoming an accountable care organization, or even deploying a medical home, healthcare executives are confronted with a confluence of high-priority initiatives.
As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, it requires people who attain great leadership qualities. The success of an organization depends on employees that can inspire people around them to achieve greatness and deliver quality care to the patients. Being in the healthcare industry, we have seen many
· Observe executive leadership at the highest level of the Above the requirement of my master’s degree program to complete an administrative residency for a period of 9 to 12 months, my decision to pursue a fellowship at a hospital was based on the educational and professional opportunities the program provides. The practical experience and exposure across the organization will truly lay the groundwork for a successful career and bridge the gap between academic theory and technology and practical application. Leadership is an applied skill, but too often, it is left to chance as something to be picked up on the job. Progressing as a successfully leader requires more. The fellowship will provide opportunities to develop and strengthen my leadership skills, which will maximize my level of contribution in a permanent entry-level position and increase my marketability significantly.
Section 1 Capitol Project Deborah Kirk University of Phoenix HCS 517 Debra Vaughn April 25, 2016 Many healthcare organizations set goals and objections and write mission statements that reflect the way they want the public to see how healthcare is provided. This is done to guide how their healthcare providers practice daily. In order to meet these goals and objects it is necessary to have in place processes and procedures to ensure the results will be what is expected which is a positive patient experience and outcome. In order for our organization to reach this goal there is a coaching and execution package that will provide step-by-step processes and procedures to ensure that everyone is doing the same thing at the same time
sees their internal environment by staying committed to serving the community. They are dedicated to enhancing patient care, teaching and research, as well as taking a leadership role as an integrated health care system. They recognize that increasing value and continuously improving quality is essential to maintaining excellence. Partners’ vision is to dedicate themselves to the delivery of superior care that is patient and family centered, accessible and equitable. To provide a coordinated, cost efficient and transparent care model that will benefit patients across the continuum from prevention to long term. To touch the communities we serve, local or global, with sustainable improvements in the care they provide with a keen focus on underserved populations. To lead in research that fosters collaboration, bringing discovery to the patient’s bedside, and sharing those successes with the world so fut9re generations may benefit. To invest in education and training to nurture the next generation of leaders who can carry forward the lessons learned. To promote the development of our workforce by creating opportunities for achievement and advancement. In addition, to seek ways to deliver the highest quality health care to all.
There are many challenges that are defining the future strategic direction of health care such as information technology advancements, access to health care, maintaining a skilled workforce, proposed health care reform and legislation, and rising costs. I will look at these challenges and how an organization may adapt its direction and strategies in accordance with these challenges.
Do you know leaders in healthcare have a new style of managing? Healthcare field is one of the fields that changes occur frequently. With the introduction of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) brought a lot of changes in every aspect of healthcare delivery, from reimbursement to quality control to elimination of wasteful and inefficient practices and having huge impact on the U.S. healthcare delivery system, with many more changes to come. When leaders in healthcare organizations are asked, “what’s the one word that best characterizes the impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on the U.S. healthcare delivery system,” most will answer “change”. These changes also brought new managing styles to healthcare leaders. I would be writing in my own discourse community, which is Health Systems Management. To give guide lines for a neighbor who is thinking of jointing this discourse community, how we operate and to be successful in this filed.
Moreover, I interacted and carefully listened to with most Medicare patients. Their concerns were relative and déjà vu; I learned about the Center for Medicare & Medicaid services new rules. My experience with KP patients confirms again that I have an undeniable knowledge for the healthcare system. The Medicare
