How to Succeed in the Midst of Challenging Dynamics
Note: This post is an excerpt from my SHSMD 2021 conference presentation. You can download the slide deck from this presentation here.
It’s true, the COVID-19 pandemic has been unlike anything our healthcare system has seen in recent history. In many cases, teams have been short-staffed and budget dollars reallocated. How can growth departments rebound from such challenges, often with no additional resources? By learning from those familiar with overcoming similar obstacles.
Staying nimble and adaptable in the face of challenges is something many veterans know how to do well. Experienced leaders are accustomed to making adjustments when there are unplanned changes, budget reductions, or higher demands on the same few resources.
Over the past year, I’ve worked alongside and advised numerous Stratasan clients as they’ve navigated shifting priorities and supported their staff through COVID-19 related challenges. In this post, I’ll share how I’ve seen these hospitals respond and how we can all learn from their experiences.
I’ll also share some of Stratasan’s story of rebounding from loss. I’ll provide some of the insights we’ve learned on how to focus priorities, make risk/reward calculations, and automate more.
