I agree with your statement that health data is essential in evaluating the trends in health care needs.  Leaders do need to be proactive and have vision for the future before the it is too late.  Evaluating data will help leaders to pinpoint areas that need to focus on to be able to stay competitive in this ever changing industry.

Effective leadership does need to be flexible.  Adapting to change and having a vision for what will be effective is important.  There are so many external factors affecting health care leaders methods of action that one has to choose which is the best way for each situation.
 While rising costs have driven the healthcare industry to think outside the box, it is only by having good leadership that this can be accomplished. It is one thing to be able to see the overall plan for the future, but anot...

I agree that duplicate and unnecessary lab testing can drive up medical costs.  The federal government monitors this by tracking fraudulent and wasteful claims.  Tracking unnecessary testing is difficult, especially when it is often due to oversight by staff.  However, ignorance is not a legitimate excuse when it comes to the federal government's money.  It would be wonderful if operating software could monitor all of this but from my experience it is often left up to staff to be ware and catch any unnecessary testing.

Martha your project was really well performed. I had a lot of trouble doing the hangout part. It is true that while budgets change throughout the year money is always hard to come by. Everyone wants to budget for more than they can actually have, so that when the money is available, they may be the ones lucky enough to get it. It is very important to make your case in order to receive the money when you need it. In order get things you want and or need you need to provide statistical and reasonable reasons why the money should be given to your department over another. Saving money over the year by cutting overtime is another way to prove your case.

I totally agree with your article about working in a happy workplace can lead to a longer, happier life.  We spend so much time at work that it can be source of stress in our lives.  Being able to go to work and enjoy what you do is important.  Managers can help by making sure that their staff is felt valued and appreciated.  To empower employees and give them a sense a purpose goes a long way.
Motivational strategies are very important to individuals in the working field. People should be rewarded for their behavior that is acceptable, and which can also enhance performance and motivate them. This article was very ...

Very interesting article. Employees do need to speak up when they see errors being made.  I know most people do not speak up because they probably feel they are taddle telling on someone, but  correcting behavior is important in order to provide quality, cost effective health care.

Cheryl,
I agree that primary care physicians do a better job at looking at the patient's overall health.  I know I prefer to see my primary care doctor for most of my needs, I see her more often and feel more comfortable with her.   Attracting more physicians to enter primary care will be difficult due to the fact that it is one of least lucrative areas, specialists make a lot more money.  Only time will tell what the future will hold for the family physician.
