Physician leadership roles across the healthcare landscape continue to grow in scope of engagement and accountability. Today’s physician executives are at the forefront of managing change and confronting challenges, designing new and better ways to coordinate care across the healthcare ecosystem, and navigating patients to the highest value touch-points. Amid immense public health needs, evolving reimbursement models, technology disruption, risk sharing, the aging population and increased consumerism, providers must have a keen focus on the highest quality care delivery and the optimal patient experience.
