Leadership

 

Recently imagingBiz sat down with the two of McKesson’s General Managers to discuss their views on important current imaging issues.

One of the latest offerings in vRad’s service portfolio would make for a good chapter in How to Do More with Less in Radiology, should such a book ever get written. The new program is the teleradiology giant’s Virtual Resident Workflow (VRW), and the title of the chapter on it would be something along the lines of: “While You’re Interpreting, You Could Be Teaching Too.”

If radiology departments want to stay relevant and thrive in the U.S. healthcare industry’s shift from volume-to-value, they need to clearly demonstrate their contribution to the organization’s overall success.

Rare is the radiology practice of any size that has never had to sweat out the absence of one or more radiologists as unread non-emergent studies piled up.

Earlier this month, I interviewed Alexander Norbash, MD, chair and professor of radiology at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, about leadership and a variety of other topics. When I asked him if he had any advice for radiologists who may be considering a leadership position in the near future, one of his answers made a significant impression on me.

Building a Better Day

We all know good chemistry makes good relationships. But did you know chemistry has everything to do with having a good day—right down to thinking more clearly, getting more done and making meetings more productive?

Do you have the right attitude to innovate?

It was Outliers author Malcolm Gladwell who popularized the concept that it takes roughly 10,000 hours to achieve mastery in a field. Success is about practice, diligence and time. But when it comes to transformation and change in business, healthcare and life, it isn’t time but attitude that matters most.

Be happier at work

Finding a happy place at work may seem like mismatch—or if you are lucky, the norm. In healthcare, we strive to keep patients happy. Happy providers make happy patients. But sometimes we need some help in boosting our own happiness.
