What cancer program leaders should do to guide their centers through a successful recovery and ensure the safety of patients and staff while providing essential care to cancer patients.
Academic medical centers face unique challenges in their commitment to train new generations of healthcare professionals, move medicine forward, and provide for the immediate needs of the community.
The tripartite mission of academic medical centers (AMCs) has always generated complex and interconnected challenges at every level of the academic enterprise, and the ever-changing healthcare environment is constantly introducing new pressures and threats.
Funding reductions and reimbursement uncertainties, pressures from the expanding pipeline of medical students, integrating research strategies with other organizational initiatives, and managing new relationships with community providers at local and regional levels are just a few of the demands buffeting AMCs, schools of medicine, and research entities.
More than most, academic organizations understand that change is a double-edged sword, and with the disruption and uncertainty comes new opportunity for those who can rise to the challenge. AMCs looking to successfully navigate change need to find a strategic partner with the experience and expertise necessary to craft innovative solutions and make the most of new opportunities.
After a massive effort to integrate 18 clinics into a new health system—including the standardization of front-end workflows to support the migration of all clinics onto one EHR platform—ambulatory leadership at the University of Kansas Health System (UKHS) wanted to assess the state of clinic operations and improve performance. As a world-class academic medical center and destination for complex care and diagnosis, it is a priority of UKHS that patients seeking care at its facilities have timely and convenient access to healthcare services. As such, leadership sought to deploy a deliberate performance improvement (PI) effort to make enhancements to patient access, satisfaction, and clinic throughput. To maintain balance, UKHS also wanted to simultaneously determine ways to improve the satisfaction of its providers and staff providing the care.
ECG partnered with the leadership of the University of Kansas Hospital and the University of Kansas Physicians to design and implement a new structure to manage and grow ambulatory operations in advance of a major integration initiative.
