In our weekly Trends that Matter series, we provide engaging infographics from healthcare influencers to highlight general trends affecting the pharmaceutical industry. This week's featured healthcare trend is leadership. As the healthcare industry adopts value-based care models, clinicians are taking on more leadership roles. Successful hospital leaders often have both clinical experience and business expertise. Healthcare organizations can build stronger teams by training individuals with clinical backgrounds in leadership and management.Clinicians often bring unique approaches to administrative decisions. According to Maureen Bisognano, President and CEO of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement:
“When you can marry the leadership skills and the clinical background, you have an opportunity to lead in a very distinct and different way. When you get someone who knows what quality looks like, and pair that with a curiosity about new ways to think about leading, you end up with people who are able to produce dramatic innovations in the field.”
