Reviewing and updating bylaws gives the medical staff the opportunity to improve physician engagement, effect meaningful change, and implement leading practices that are responsive to the current complex environment. As a team of consultants who are also physicians, we have the experience to anticipate and overcome resistance to change and the empathy to create modernized governance structures that work with the unique culture of a complex healthcare organization.
Clear Guidance for Compliance
Careful vetting of bylaws and thoughtful rewriting or reorganizing are only the first steps—recognizing and overcoming resistance to change are important steps to achieving alignment and a return on investment.
Decrease unnecessary administrative burdens
Improve physician satisfaction by standardizing cross-system processes
Enhance autonomy and control through bylaws and rules & regulations
Foster a collaborative and productive coexistence between hospital and medical staff
Mitigate the potential for litigation
We now have uniform medical staff bylaws across our five hospitals. Aligning the medical staffs of each hospital was a significant lift and I cannot thank Chartis Clinical Quality enough for their help and expertise throughout the process. ”
