Uncertainty in Healthcare
It’s hard enough to work in an environment where there’s some uncertainty—perhaps regarding job security, technology implementations and effects and the like. Today, however, there’s monumental vagueness or doubts on a host of issues directly impacting healthcare, including the Budget Control Act, sustainable growth rates (SGR), bundled payments, ICD-10, ACO and more. Ken Perez, of MedeAnalytics, provides excellent guidance on how to work in these challenging times. “Vigilance, scenario planning, steadfast pursuit of the Triple Aim, and the continued refinement of care delivery will enable hospitals to safely navigate the dangerous waters of this period of uncertainty,” he says. While we’ll have an extensive article by Perez in the June edition of Executive Insight, which then can be searched and viewed by any of our communities at www.advanceweb.com, I encourage your suggestions and strategies on effectively mastering tasks and objectives in today’s healthcare environment.
