It’s all about spreading the positive stories -- Continuing the #HealingStories

Read More
 
It’s all about spreading the positive stories. In last month’s Leadership Blog, I wrote about two examples of health care professionals going above and beyond to improve the lives of their patients. I also invited readers to respond with their own stories of caring and compassionate staff who have gone to extraordinary lengths to support patients, both physically and emotionally. I was happy that readers responded with several additional examples that we are proud to share.

Charting a course for success

Read More
 
As a child, I remember being fascinated by the sextant on my father’s desk. It was more than just an odd-looking contraption, he would explain. It was a tool used by expert mariners to navigate their ships safely across the unseen dangers of the oceans. Even one degree off in their calculations would result in their ships sailing miles off course, so they checked their measurements regularly along their journeys.

I’ve gotten this quite a bit the last couple months: Hey, Michael. Whatever happened to those proposed changes to diagnostic imaging standards? To fill you in, new changes to our diagnostic imaging standards were supposed to go into effect this January and July 2015. However, after getting some additional information, Joint Commission decided to postpone the launch of these revised standards for providers of both ambulatory and hospital imaging services.
