3 #HASummit14 Learning Objectives To describe the importance of physician engagement in quality improvement (the “why”) To describe the challenges and barriers to truly have physicians lead quality improvement (“the what”) To identify strategies to enhance physician engagement (the “how”)

4 #HASummit14 Exercise Objective: To build the tallest self- supporting structure with the contents of one box of Tinker toys. 4 1. Each group has exactly 3 minutes to plan their work. 2. During the planning phase, there can be no assembly of parts, even for practice. Pieces can be looked at and handled, but cannot be connected to each other. 3. At the end of the planning phase, all pieces go back in the box with the lid closed. 4. At the signal, you will have exactly 40 seconds to assemble your structure. 5. At the end of the construction phase, all team members will step away from their structure. The structure must stand alone, without resting on any other object and without personal assistance, for 30 seconds. 6. Each team should attempt to draw upon the principles of team work and good management in planning and executing this assigned task.

5 #HASummit14 Healthcare Revolves Around Physicians Opening line… “The words “alignment” and “coordination” have been tossed about as the government and the healthcare industry wrestle to provide more value for every healthcare dollar spent. Under those words, every strategy to fix the problem revolves around one thing: physicians.” HealthLeader's Media Breakthroughs. Aligning Hospitals and Physicians toward Value. Dec. 2009. In collaboration with PricewaterhouseCoopers.

6 #HASummit14 Engagement matters 75-85% of the decisions that drive quality and cost are determined by physicians Gallup reported at one health system, outpatient volume increased +17.5 for engaged physicians in the top quartile for improved engagement. Disengaged physicians in the bottom quartile, their outpatient volume declined -11.7%.

10 The Challenge Almost every aspect of physicians’ lives is changing or seems uncertain  Autonomy  Income  Social stature Physicians are going through something akin to the stages of grief  Most are beyond denial  Many are stuck at anger How do we get these physicians to play a positive constructive role in the needed change? 10

11 #HASummit14 The Realities of Engagement The physician is at the center of health care delivery  Ordering drives most health care actions  Physician engagement is a key component to successful quality improvement (QI) projects. The physician's focus is primarily on their own practice or quality of care  The physician’s goal and hospital’s goals and incentives may not be aligned  Lack of commitment (time, support) to system improvements Personal responsibility for quality is powerfully engrained in physicians. 11

12 #HASummit14 Systems Issues Physicians are too busy Physicians are not compensated for their help Poor knowledge management support Malpractice issues Lack of meaningful measurements Poor data analytic support 12

13 #HASummit14 What Won’t Work Isolated simple measures combined with good intentions  Inspirational speeches  Appointing physicians to key leadership positions  Financial incentives for improvement  Sharing of best practices 13

14 #HASummit14 Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs 14

15 #HASummit14 Focus on What We are Trying to Create We spent too much time talking about what’s wrong with healthcare We need to spend more time talking about what we are trying to create That future vision has to be something important and noble  It could be better for patients- and just might be great  It is more important than the concerns of any of us as individuals  To imply otherwise would be to mislead our colleagues 15

16 #HASummit14 First question: Engagement with What? Traditional definition – extent to which clinicians see their own futures as intertwined with those of larger organization  Want MDs to be “loyal” with referrals  Want them to be cooperative Needed- a modern concept to unlock transformation of healthcare  More than agreement not to sabotage – but to actually integrate care, be creative, and relentlessly push for better outcomes/ experience and efficiency  Engagement with other care givers in real teams  Engagement with community of colleagues so that peer pressure actually works  Engagement with greater goals of organization 16

18 #HASummit14 Stages of Engagement Aversion Apathy Engaged

19 #HASummit14 Levels of Physician Engagement Confidence: Physicians believe that the hospital can always be trusted to consistently deliver on it’s promises. Integrity: Physicians believe that the hospital always treats them fairly and will satisfactorily resolve any problems that might occur. Pride: Physicians feel good about using the hospital and hospital use reflects upon them. Passion: Physicians view the hospital as irreplaceable and as an integral part of their lives and their practice of medicine. 19 Gallup Business Journal “ what the doctor ordered” Sept 8, 2005

20 #HASummit14 Audience participation Poll Question 1 Which stage best describes the engagement level of the majority of physicians in your organization? a. Aversion b. Apathy c. Engaged d. Unsure or not applicable 20

21 #HASummit14 Scenario 1 Situation: Hospital management wants to implement a quality initiative to decrease the rates of Elective Deliveries before 39 weeks. Background: Other initiatives were imposed on physicians which changed their work load and work flow through increased documentation and time burdens on the MDs. The programs were generally not successful and caused tension and mistrust of administration. Setting: A hospital administrator is trying to get convince physicians on board with this program. 21

27 #HASummit14 Engage the Physicians’ Intellect Show them the evidence and be transparent about the data  Utilize tools like the KPA to provide direction and then perform deeper investigation Show them what others have achieved  Look outside your system Show them you can do the same! 27

28 #HASummit14 Segment the Engagement Plan Identify and activate champions Educate and inform structural leaders Develop project management skills  Provide support and education Identify and work with “laggards”  Allow for review of improvement ideas or tests of change  One on one meetings with trusted colleagues 28
