Healthcare

Cut across disruption to build an adaptable team of teams

Patients are living longer, funding systems are becoming more complicated, and the healthcare space is calling for greater innovation under enormous constraints.

The healthcare industry is facing a pace of change that is radically faster than anything experienced before.

Providers are in a constant battle to keep pace with the evolving requirements of the complex patient journey, from reacting to regulatory changes in funding, incorporating exciting new technologies in the treatment and care of patients, to optimizing care coordination to ensure patient satisfaction.

The consequences of this shifting environment are compounded by complex organizational structures that constrain the ability of healthcare organizations to achieve the levels of collaboration, coordination, and innovation that are now required for successful care delivery. Hospitals are increasingly morphing into networked systems; administrators and practitioners must now grapple with how to create effective communication and connectivity between different providers that are geographically dispersed on varying IT platforms managing protected health information.

The dynamic healthcare environment also impacts healthcare focused organizations beyond immediate care providers through upstream and downstream effects. Insurers are facing a market where the original revenue model is no longer viable due to an aging population and rapid churn in government regulations. Pharmaceutical companies face intense pressures on price setting and margins, and struggle to break down silos that are the product of rounds of mergers & acquisitions. All companies in the healthcare sector must also contend with the digital age, incorporating technology when possible to provide a wider scope of affordable, preventive care.

Lou Shapiro, CEO of Hospital for Special Surgery, on Team of Teams

Of all the business oriented books I have read over the course of my life, I think this one is my favorite...It makes the point that as complexity increases in all parts of our lives, including in the healthcare field and at HSS, the old ways of doing things — rigid management structures, command and control decision making and the resulting silos that are created — will no longer suffice for organizations who expect to thrive.

Duke Integrative Medicine review of Team of Teams

[Their] new enemy was agile and moved quickly through its decentralized network… This mirrors our current state of healthcare. The new enemy is the epidemic of chronic disease, pervasive and decentralized; and the healthcare system is too bureaucratic and slow to fight the war.
