Updated: Mar 29, 2023

Managing a medical organization can be a very complex business to operate. Working with complicated schedules, third party vendors, unreliable customers, and a diverse mix of specialists can create a disorganized environment to work in.

  1. Objective: Improve patient outcomes

    • Key results: Increase patient satisfaction scores by 15%, Reduce patient readmission rates by 10%, Increase the number of patients who achieve their health goals by 20%.

    • Key results: Reduce patient wait times by 20%, Increase appointment availability by 15%, Implement new technologies to streamline processes and reduce costs.


  1. Objective: Increase employee engagement and satisfaction

    • Key results: Increase employee satisfaction scores by 10%, Implement a career development program for high-performing employees, Increase the number of training programs by 20%.


  1. Objective: Enhance clinical quality and safety

  1. Objective: Increase community engagement

These objectives and key results can be tailored to the specific needs and priorities of the healthcare organization.
