Course Title:
The New Business of Medicine: Clinical Leadership, Teamwork, and High Reliability

Course Presenter:
Barry Silbaugh,MD,MS,FACPE

Course Facilitator:
Michael Shapiro,MD,MBA,FACP,CPE 

Course Description:
For many organizations, quality, outcomes and patient safety have been regarded as public relations and liability management issues.  In the new world of health care, it’s what will drive the bottom line.  This session outlines how we must move from autonomy to teamwork, how to communicate effectively as team members, and how to change the culture to highly reliable and safe care for patients.

Course Layout
Part I - Clinical Leadership
Health care reform has brought Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), the patient-centered medical home, and similar integration strategies to the forefront, linking physicians with hospitals and insurers more tightly than ever before. 

Part II - Highly Reliable Care
The engineering sciences of safety, reliability, and teamwork has brought very high levels of reliability to high-risk, high-consequence industries such as nuclear power and aviation.  This exists because of a greater understanding of when autonomy and authority are critical to safety – and when it’s detrimental.  Although health care has significant differences in comparison to other high-consequence industries, there are many lessons that clarify how health care can move beyond its present reliability of 10-4 to 10-6.  

Part III - From Autonomy to Teamwork
There are many challenges for a physician trying to move from a clinical culture to a leadership or management role.  The most daunting is often the change from an autonomous, authoritative role to one who works with groups of people with questions and different (but equally valuable) viewpoints. This segment will provide clinical leaders opportunity for success in the change process.
