Description

Increasing administrative responsibilities due to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care delivery models reduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. Organizational development focuses on optimizing management, integration, improvement and adaptability to increase effectiveness and efficiency so that an organizationin this case, a medical practicecan achieve its goals. Optimizing the practice can improve patient experience and outcomes and create a more efficient and satisfying work environment. In today’s health care environment, medical practices may lack a professional approach in many critical organizational areas such as financial systems, staffing and clinical quality. In order to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of medical practices, while still delivering high-quality care to patients, practices must take a professional management approach. Organizational development focuses on optimizing management, integration, improvement and adaptability to increase effectiveness and efficiency so that an organizationin this case, a medical practicecan achieve its goals. The goal is to develop a culture of improvement that supports an iterative process in which everyone is able to identify better ways to get the practice’s important work done. Organizational development requires substantial time and effort, but the end result is a medical practice that is more service-oriented with improved patient experience, more effective with better patient outcomes, more efficient with an increased bottom line and more satisfying with a work environment that supports and encourages all involved.
