Developing physician leadership has long been a challenge for the healthcare industry. Physicians are often seen as leaders in a medical practice but many don't have the skills they need to reach their potential as leaders.
Keith Olson, director of physician consulting services at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, joins the MGMA Insights podcast to discuss steps to take to successfully develop physician leaders.
Also in this episode, Barbara Sharpless, director of physician services at BayCare Medical Group, discusses the current state of physician recruiting and retention. Barbara sheds light on the current state of the physician job market and explains the dynamics at play that gives physicians the leverage in the negotiation process.
Finally, we talk to David Norris about financial intelligence for physicians. David is a practicing cardiac anesthesiologist in Wichita, Kan., a consultant at David Norris, LLC, and author of The Financially Intelligent Physician: What They Didn’t Teach You in Medical School. He is also a clinical assistant professor at the University of Kansas in Wichita. David explains why business intelligence is important for physicians and outlines the three financial documents every doctor should understand.
