O’Connor, Edward J.
Physician Executive Vol. 32, Issue 3, p. 76-78

The article discusses some organizational systems and structures that would support physicians executives and medical staff in implementing changes. The authors argue that traditional relics may hinder changes required in order to meet the demands of today’s environment. In order to respond effectively to these demands, health care organizations must update tools and mechanisms such as budgeting, feedback, reward/compensation, clinical guidelines, and employee selection, training and retention.
