Why Physicians Are Best to Lead
Physician-run hospitals outperform manager-run hospitals. Studies show that hospital quality scores are 25% higher when run by medically trained doctors. Why? According to Mariano from KevinMD.com:
- Physicians naturally engage in quality improvement activities.
- Physicians train and learn for a lifetime.
- Physicians start at the bottom and continually strive for growth.
- Physicians are bound by the Hippocratic Oath. Their primary objective is to provide the best treatment for their patients.
Physicians are trained to make crucial decisions.
