The Power of ProviderWisdom
From a systems perspective, everyone who works at a health organization is a provider. ProviderWisdom is a digital platform that focuses on what matters to those who deliver care or support the people who do. Clinicians and staff share perspectives about themselves, their work, and their organization, as well as their ideas for solving problems. We distill this information into meaningful, actionable insights to drive learning, improvement, and value. It’s never been more important.
The majority of health care workers want nothing more than to improve the patient experience. That's why they got into this field in the first place. But it is not always easy for them to do their best work.
In order to care for and retain patients, leaders must first create exceptional teams and find ways to engage nurses, administrative staff, physicians, supervisors, and even housekeeping staff and switchboard operators.
--from Patients Come Second by Paul Spiegelman Britt Berrett
What we hear in the field:
Go beyond ‘engagement surveys’. Focus on what matters to us. Help us connect with leadership. Spark positive action and follow-up. Keep it simple.
Simple. Clean. Clear. Useful.
Summary of Key Points
Opportunity: Provider alignment and burn-out have emerged as the next big problems to solve in healthcare. The best solutions will focus on bringing humanity back to healthcare and truly engaging people on the front line, including trainees.
Approach: Ask clinical and administrative staff to share ‘stories’ about what matters to them; distill into meaningful, actionable insights that help health organizations create a more responsive and successful ecosystem
Tone: Appreciative Inquiry, focusing on achieving the positive vs dwelling on the negative
Value: A responsive ecosystem reduces burn-out and leads to deeper engagement, stronger loyalty and retention, more collegiality and productivity, better idea-generation and vetting, higher provider and patient satisfaction, and improved communication
Response: Extremely positive feedback from clinical, experience, human resource, and innovation leaders at major health organizations, reinforcing the value of ProviderWisdom
Technology: Built on the software platform we use for PatientWisdom: secure and scalable
Timing: We have launched at OSF HealthCare and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, and are talking with a very small group of forward-leaning health systems about joining our ProviderWisdom Early Adopter Program.
