A new white paper from national healthcare consulting firm PYA examines the competencies needed for physicians to lead healthcare delivery system reform, and offers guidance for physicians to hone these required skills.

Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) June 24, 2014

The success or failure of continued healthcare reform depends on the willingness and ability of physicians to transform how they practice medicine, according to a new white paper from PYA. Transformers: Enabling Physicians to Lead Healthcare Delivery System Reform identifies three key competencies physicians need most in our evolving healthcare system:

1. Leadershipassuming responsibility for building collaborative partnerships with other providers and payers.

2. Consumer engagementcounseling and supporting patients in cost evaluation and treatment options.

3. Population healthidentifying and classifying high-risk/rising-risk patients; developing processes to track patients in their care plans; linking patients to community resources to improve and maintain health.

As medical schools curricula often do not address these competencies, PYA has designed a Physician Leadership Academy that fills in the gaps and prepares physicians to lead the charge in healthcare transformation. Under the direction of PYA Principal, Kent Bottles, MD, the Academy offers 12 modules that cover quality and patient safety, leadership, regulation, cross-disciplinary team building, population management, systems thinking, finance, information technology, payment reform, strategic planning, and project management.
