Physician Alignment

Physician Alignment

You’ve been concerned about your physicians for years.

Before the pandemic, physician burnout cost the healthcare industry $4.6 billion annually. And the cost to recruit, replace and onboard a single new physician: $1 million. Today, whether fighting to save lives in a charged atmosphere or agonizingly sidelined by shuttered services and fearful for their financial security, the pandemic has only amplified their stress.

From our vantage point working with hospitals and health services companies across America, we see an urgent need for physician engagement and alignment to propel organizations forward.

After all, physician engagement can make or break your healthcare organization. Burnout and disengagement can be serious impediments to achieving your organization’s goals, limiting your ability:


To retain them


To gain referrals

Patient Experience

To provide superior patient experience

Meanwhile, trust in physicians has risen to extraordinary levels. Fact is, physicians are one of your greatest assets as a provider.

With clinical outcomes and financial performance increasingly intertwined, organizations benefit immensely by uniting operational and clinical leadership to elevate your care to new heights. Having a highly engaged medical staff as part of your business team enables you to solve issues that:

Reduce complications

Reduce mortality rates

Reduce readmissions

Reduce lengths of stay
