5 Points on Building Cohesive Physician Teams

A HealthLeaders Media report discusses several key points on building cohesive physician teams.

  • Develop accountability. Recruit physicians who will take responsibility for documenting the specific metrics for procedures during a patient's stay.
  • Establish a physician council. The council can focus on issues such as examining documentation and coding procedures; reevaluating supply purchases; and coordinating home healthcare.
  • Align physicians with the organization's culture. Ensure that each physician's long-term goals and care philosophies align with those of the center.
  • Identify and build leaders. Physicians can participate in a confidential assessment to identify strengths and weaknesses and to pinpoint the skills they must focus on to be effective leaders.
