When launching cost-saving or quality improvement efforts, healthcare payors and providers often fail to consider one major factor: the resistance they are almost certain to encounter from their medical staffs. Intent upon patient responsibilities, many physicians are neither cost-focused nor open to administrative changes.

In this special report, "Bringing Doctors On Board: Cultivating Physician Leaders and Reducing Pushback," a panel of experts describes a variety of tools including skills assessment, communications, incentives and marketing that can turn physician "push-back" into support, ensuring the success of new programs while developing physician leadership at their organizations.

You'll hear from Mary Anne Graf, Vice President, Women's & Children's Services, Bon Secours Health System; Dr. Manuel Lowenhaupt, National Practice Leader, CapGemini; and Dr. Mark Wenneker, Consulting Manager, The Bard Group on theories, application and results of physician engagement programs.

This 36-page report is based on the January 26, 2005 audio conference "Physician Engagement: Tools and Strategies to Get Reluctant Physicians on Board" during which Graf, Lowenhaupt and Wenneker described how to engage physicians, including strategies and case studies.

You'll get details on:

  • Tools and strategies to motivate physicians;
  • Keys to physician engagement; and
  • Creating physician alignment through marketing.

Given the time-intensiveness of medicine, it’s no surprise that overworked physicians focus more on patient care than organizational goals. But without the attention and support of the physicians—whether they are employees or part of your organization’s network—many organizational initiatives are likely to fail. Most healthcare organizations report that one of the biggest challenges their organization faces when adopting new programs is the resistance of doctors to these changes.

Reaching Reluctant Physicians: Forging Organizational Trust and Collaboration provides physician engagement strategies ranging from democratic and open forums to workshops, new technology, pay for performance (PFP) and incentive programs. This 31-page special report explores means to accomplish change and offers insider tips for achieving the ultimate goal: physician buy-in for program success.

In this report, two physician facilitators provide an inside look at the physician culture and suggest ways to create trust and alignment between management and physicians.

These strategies are provided by Dr. Joseph Bujak, vice president of medical affairs at Kootenai Medical Center, and Dr. Scott J. Cullen, consultant for Accenture Health and Life Sciences.
