Essentials of High-Performing Organizations


High performance is the goal of health care professionals in organizations of every size and setting. More than just a catchphrase, high-performing organizations generate better clinical outcomes, improved patient satisfaction, increased reimbursements and revenue, lower costs, and greater employee morale. This excellence depends not on heroic leaders, but on executives, clinical leaders, and clinicians coming together.
