Successful physician engagement comes in many shapes and sizes. What works for one healthcare organization may not work for another. And with myriad differences among physicians in terms of age, specialty, work location, and more, multiple approaches to enhancing engagement are needed. The key is exploring different strategies and finding the ones that work for you and your organization.

Enhanced Physician Engagement, Volume 2: Tools and Tactics for Success is a how-to guide for involving and inspiring physicians. The book examines concrete, practical methods for tackling hot-button issues such as burnout, the burden of electronic health records, and accountability—factors that can cause disengagement. With more than 40 years of healthcare leadership and management experience, editor Carson F. Dye possesses unique expertise in getting physicians more engaged.

Written by recognized physician leaders, each of the book’s chapters stands on its own, allowing you to find practical tips and guidance by topic according to your needs. Chapter authors explain the tactics that have been successful for them and share the lessons they have learned. Topics include:

  • Assessing physicians for leadership positions
  • Developing dyad, triad, and quad organization structures
  • Creating a physician leadership development program
  • Measuring physician engagement success

In Enhanced Physician Engagement, Volume 1: What It Is, Why You Need It, and Where to Begin, Dye offers a foundation for understanding what physician engagement is and the critical role physician leaders play in healthcare organizations. In this second volume, you will learn step-by-step tips and techniques for developing your own robust action plan for long-term engagement and organizational success.
