This book provides the listener with nine foundational values that transform a healthcare organization, outfitting it to succeed in the modern environment of high accountability and value-based medicine. Plagued by traditional leadership paradigms, the healthcare industry continues to deliver status quo results. Transformational thinking must dominate by embracing the values that have been vetted over 25 years in healthcare settings that are described in The Culture Cure.
The Culture Cure delivers the essential DNA required to break free of the status quo environment that continues to dominate the American healthcare industry. It begins with the understanding of fundamental organizational core values that lay the foundation for excellence in culture, quality, finance, and governance, known as the trees of transcendence. The Culture Cure is the medicine that can ultimately elevate the standing of the United States healthcare system ranking among top healthcare systems, no longer trailing behind other developed countries in world.
Transformational cultures deliver excellence, innovation, and best practices that are not afraid to own, manage, create, and develop highly reliable organizations of transcendence. Delivering a systemic and collegial leadership approach to continuous improvement breathes new life into healthcare to address the chronic pain associated with underperformance. With the heated debate over America's healthcare reform and recent crises in our government-run healthcare system, transformation has become imperative. Transformation is never simple, particularly in an industry that has been described by many leadership experts as one of the most complex industries to lead. There is a public call for healthcare leaders to initiate wide-scale transformation from our traditional healthcare culture into one that innovates to meet today's challenges. The availability of evidence-based information mandates industry transformation.
