    J|INSIGHTS - Coronavirus & communications with Aileen Bennett

    J|INSIGHTS - Coronavirus & communications with Aileen Bennett

    The severity of the coronavirus outbreak continues to grow globally. And with it, the buzz and media attention and fear. At the same time, it’s not yet a big issue here in the US. Hospitals here generally aren’t on the front lines of combatting the outbreak. In this conversation, our CEO David Jarrard speaks to senior managing advisor Aileen Bennett about the situation and that gap between the attention that’s being paid to coronavirus with what’s happening inside the wall of US hospitals.

    PHYSICIAN ENGAGEMENT - Building Loyalty and Decreasing Burnout

    The business relationship between physicians and hospitals is shifting.
    It's thanks to new compensations models and new models for patient care, largely (but not exclusively) driven by the move towards value-based care. James Cervantes, associate vice president in the National Practice here at Jarrard Inc., brings a wealth of experience working on leadership structure, professional development and physician group management for hospitals and health systems. And, he's been watching the evolution of the physician-hospital relationship closely.
    Here, he talks about some of the changes happening in physician employment models, including compensation and care delivery, and how administration can best work and communicate with physicians during this evolution of the care team.

    J|INSIGHTS - Moral injury & physician burnout

    J|INSIGHTS - Moral injury & physician burnout

    On this J|Insights our CEO, David Jarrard, talks about a really interesting article titled Beyond burnout: Docks Decry ‘Moral Injury’ from Financial Pressures of Healthcare. It's by Melissa Bailey over at Kaiser Health News and was published on February 4.
    The idea of moral injury actually started in military and combat situations. It's this idea that it's not just stress and it's not just frustration with things being a certain way, but it's actually being in a position where you feel forced do something or not do something that, as a result of that action or inaction, leads to harm for someone. And we're seeing that as part of the massive burnout problem among physicians today.

    PATIENT EXPERIENCE - Frantic flu season and coronavirus panic

    PATIENT EXPERIENCE - Frantic flu season and coronavirus panic

    Some hospitals look like disaster zones during this year’s historically serious flu season.
    And now the US is bracing for the potential threat of coronavirus, generating significant fear (and, it seems, somewhat masking the news about the flu).
    Behind the scenes and away from the media buzz, many providers are taking drastic measures to handle increased patient loads and prevent the flu virus from spreading within their clinics and hospitals. And they are creating plans to prepare for and respond to a coronavirus outbreak. Visitor restrictions, security checks at entrances, all-caps warning signs, mandates to wear protective masks and even tents or makeshift intake areas are common.
    While these precautions are essential, we believe you can still deliver a great experience, even in the midst one of the worst flu seasons in decades. Here are nine ideas you can implement today that will help prevent the flu from spreading, keep employees motivated, mitigate fear and build trust among patients and members of your community. In addition, these communications tips can be adapted if and when your organization faces other frightening and highly communicable diseases such as coronavirus.
