Applied Physician Leadership Academy

Healthcare delivery today requires a fundamentally different approach – and a new breed of physician leaders that can rally around new requirements resulting from changes in healthcare financing, physician reporting requirements, clinical process improvements, team-based care, and accountable care. Today, physician leaders are being measured by the results they achieve; the value or efficiency with which they achieve good outcomes; and, improvements in performance resulting from a focus on teamwork through superior coordination, information sharing and teaming across disciplines.
