TACKLE THESE CHALLENGES

Understand the most important trends in the physician landscape for practices and those who work with them by listening to the Radio Advisory physician playlist.

  • The war for physician talent will be won by those who meaningfully reduce physician burnout and improve work-life balance.
  • Employers of choice give their doctors meaningful autonomy, ample time, and seamless support to be both physicians and people.
  • Employers must track not only physician turnover but also intent to leave. About half of doctors have considered retiring early, switching employers, or leaving medicine altogether. 
  • To support physicians, organizations must tackle burnout on two levels: ensure easy access to resources for individual emotional needs and proactively make organizational changes to prevent future burnout.
  • We caution against making compensation the foundation of your employee value proposition. Pay your physicians competitively and ensure that your compensation model meets five universal best practices.
  • A primary care physician shortage is preventable. But only if executives adopt proven workflows interventions.
  • Physician buy-in is more important at independent practices than other medical groups.
  • Organizations must craft a physician-specific communication strategy by streamlining communication channels, increasing executive visibility, and creating forums for meaningful dialogue.
  • Create a thoughtful change management strategy by using our tools and templates, or bring us on-site for in-person presentations to help you build support for initiatives.
  • To augment your growth strategy, analyze future utilization as well as 5- and 10-year projections in your market with the Market Scenario Planner.
  • A strong governance structure is the foundation of every successful independent medical group. Use these resources to invest in your group’s governance model.
  • Expanding patient access remains an evergreen priority and prerequisite for winning patient loyalty
