Every premier physician practice, whether independent or in a health system, shares two traits. First, the best of the best plan regularly and, second, because they plan regularly, they are able to execute in a disciplined manner.
• Well-thought-out plans, tied to metrics in all areas of organizational performance, provide clear direction, strategic objectives and quality outcomes.
• Whether your organization is merging with another practice, being acquired by a health system or challenged by the general uncertainties of the health care environment, planning provides a sense of control, a mechanism for making decisions and the mitigation of stress.
• Planning allows the organization to be nimble in order to minimize threats and maximize opportunities, the foundation of a clinically and financially successful practice.
