Evolving Leadership Roles in Hospitals
Leadership roles in hospitals are continuing to change at an alarming rate. With a large variety of new C-level positions springing up, it’s obvious that hospitals are doing everything they can to adapt to new changes in healthcare in order to remain relevant—and profitable.
A 2014 study from the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) found that hospital CEO turnover was 18%. This is actually a 2% reduction since 2013, but many speculate that this turnover is both the cause of and a response to a lot of the industry’s instability. When hospitals are struggling to keep leadership at the top level, adapting to the additional changes in the industry proves ever more difficult. Keeping the revenue cycle flowing while ensuring HIPAA compliance, implementing new technologies, and maintaining patient satisfaction is the enduring goal for all of us. Don’t be afraid to seek out partners if you need them.
