by The Leadership Development Group posted in HELM Interviews, Leadership Resources

0 Comments

The problems facing the health industry are too complex for any one organization to solve alone. Improving health outcomes, access and affordability requires collaboration and coordination from diverse sectors, including life sciences, healthcare providers, payers, public health and services, and community resources. Developing the innovative partnerships and the leadership necessary to address issues like where to invest in R&D, how to implement technology solutions, pathways for clinical treatments, best practices in data sharing, etc. is crucial for success. This presentation focuses on the opportunity pharmaceutical leaders have in leading the future health ecosystem by building collaborative partnerships that have the capacity to add tremendous value to promoting health and wellness throughout the globe. We offer strategies for building and demonstrating health ecosystem leadership through case studies and practical learning applications that leaders can implement back on the job, with their teams and their organizations.

It's no secret that the US health system is in desperate need of repair. Structural inequities such as housing and food insecurity, air and water pollution, and access to educational and economic opportunities — known to the medical community as social determinants have been linked to disparate health outcomes for years. However, never in recent history have we so acutely and rapidly felt their affects as we have during the COVID-19 pandemic. United around the common purpose to improve overall population health, industry leaders must harness their collective power and influence to champion changes that will benefit the health of our nation.

What Gets in the Way of Systemic Change?

by The Leadership Development Group posted in Leadership Resources, Diversity and Inclusion

Improving population health hinges on the ability of organizations from diverse sectors to collaborate. In a recent survey conducted by ORC International and Change Healthcare, which included 120 payers across the country who worked with providers to integrate value-based models, nearly a quarter of them reported cost savings as high as 7.5%. Almost 80% of these payer organizations also cited the quality of care improved, while 64% reported better provider relationships, and 73% reported improvements in patient engagement.  A Commonwealth Fund analysis demonstrated that value-based models lead to fewer emergency hospital visits and downstream cost efficiencies relative to similar markets.

by Elaine E. Schulte, MD, MPH, FAAP, BCC posted in Leadership Resources, Frontline Support

While physicians in some parts of the country are now facing the pandemic head-on, many have started to process what has probably been the most challenging period of their professional careers. Most are still scared, and some are just starting to grieve and feel the emotions of the past months. These emotions can include the struggle with professional identity. Some of us struggled with feeling incompetence; “What did I do? or “How come I couldn’t help more?”. Some of us couldn’t work due to our age or a medical condition that we were forced to disclose.        

During this period of disillusionment, we’re trying to figure out how to right the ship with ongoing worries about many things, including the economy, educational needs, and, what the fall and winter are going to look like1. Understanding typical physician characteristics can help guide your teams through the storm.

During unprecedented and tumultuous times there is no such thing as ‘simple'.  Crisis Management is complex and difficult.  Now more than ever before strong leadership is an essential factor in mobilizing and motivating teams while working remotely, still aiming to achieve the business objectives front line leaders are still ultimately responsible for delivering. 

Whether working within a team or leading employees, employees are experiencing disorganization, difficulty concentrating, feelings of overwhelm, increased requests for sick time, and increased absenteeism—all of which are normal responses in a crisis. The relevant management and leadership skills take on a different look and feel under these circumstances.  I’ve captured a few leadership actions that I’ve coached others on and have seen used effectively and are proven best practices by many organizations:
