In the business world of striving for competitive advantage over other companies, it can be a dog-eat-dog world. 

But, there’s no room for this mentality in healthcare. 

The pressure of hospital systems in today’s world of healthcare reform to maintain high quality of care at as low a cost as possible is on every CEO’s radar.  And, healthcare organizations find themselves competing for market share to stay out of the red.  The answer is to look within the system.  It’s all about the patient experience and patient satisfaction.  Patients have choices as to where and with whom they seek and trust with their healthcare.  Systems not focused on working together to deliver coordinated and efficient care with a patient-centered approach will be the ones to lose market share.  Patients who report positive experiences have more trust in their providers and are less likely to switch physicians, allowing for more continuity in care. 

Disjointed and fragmented services lead to hospital systems operating in “silos,” threatening both care and quality for patients.  Leaders need to change their way of thinking after years of working under a different philosophy with steps toward a silo-less organization.  Identifying the root cause and obstacles to inefficiencies and patient flow issues is the first step followed by educating and changing the mindset of a hospital’s greatest asset—their employees and medical staff.  By breaking down silos, hospitals can achieve coordinated care, which will improve patient flow and the overall efficiency of the organization.
