Many industries are slow to motivate, develop and embrace change, one of which is definitely the healthcare field.
I worked in healthcare for a while and can attest to the fact that this industry has hurdles that makes introducing process changes difficult.
But no matter how hard it may seem to successfully activate change in any organization or field, change is indeed a requirement if you want to keep up with the speed of business.
Which is why I want to share this article titled How To Create A Healthcare Change Management Strategy.
As it states, The core of any change management success is COMMUNICATION and UNDERSTANDING. No matter what you are trying to change personally or within a work environment, you have to start with these two elements.
You must first understand the goal, situation, history, etc., and then you need to communicate it in a way that gives answers to questions, and garners the response you are desiring.
But how can you realistically do this? The article lays out a 4-phased approach that I agree with:
- Phase 1 – Change Readiness Evaluation
- Phase 2 – Change Management Strategy
- Phase 3 – Change Management Plan
- Phase 4 – Change Management and Re-Evaluation
Check out the article here for great insights into how you can successfully implement each of these phases in your organization – be it healthcare or not!
