Hiring better-performing employees who deliver better patient/resident care is an important goal of every health care organization.

It also illustrates how the use of behavioral assessments in the hiring process is key to ensuring organizations are hiring compassionate caregivers for their residents, and to helping them improve staff turnover and reduce costs.

Detailed discussion includes the impact of hiring the wrong person, the costs of turnover and how using behavioral assessments in the interview process can help in selecting candidates who are truly service-oriented and care about their patients in the continuing care environment.

As health care moves into the second curve, the demands being placed on its leaders are greater than ever. Strategies and the leadership that brought us to the first curve in health care will not enable the transformation needed for health care organizations to succeed in the second curve. Organizational success is dependent upon a culture committed to greater care coordination and collaborative leadership in all aspects of performance improvement.

Yet, there is a dearth of physicians trained as collaborative leaders who can contribute to the organization’s strategic vision and use their clinical skills along with leadership expertise to actively engage and collaborate with other leaders. Hear from physician leadership expert and author Mo Kasti on critical steps in a process for the physician leadership journey that enables an organization to put into place the integrated leadership necessary for success.
