Healthcare CEOs discuss current challenges in healthcare

COVID-19 has changed the landscape of medicine, redefining healthcare and the work within it. Before the pandemic, there was already a shortage of healthcare providers, and it has gotten worse, leading to stress and burnout in those who remain in the field. Speaking to the World Economic Forum team, six healthcare executives discussed these challenges, and potential solutions. These industry leaders detail the trends and provide insights on where we might go from here. 

  1. We need to adapt to meet the needs of patients and their caregivers by using telehealth systems and investing in mental health programs to support caregivers and their families, and rebuild human connections. (Dr Rod Hochman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Providence)
  2. In the age of burnout, as a leader of your practice, the ability to listen and learn and integrate ideas directly from HCPs, nurses, MAs, and other staff to improve their work-life balance and remind them why they chose to become healthcare providers. (Dr Marc Harrison, President and Chief Executive Officer, Intermountain Healthcare)
  3. Social determinants and their effects on receiving affordable and high-quality healthcare have a need to be factored in for a more holistic and equitable approach to provide behavioral care, more access, more coordinated care, and innovative treatment to all. (Robert C. Garrett, Chief Executive Officer, Hackensack Meridian Health)

These are three of many points that healthcare leaders discussed in this article. As with any conversation in healthcare, many of the ideas apply mainly to the hospital setting, but others can be used in private practice. We hope that you, as a MedCoShare member, can use these ideas to provide even more supportive and holistic care to your patients, and we are here to help in any way we can.

What Our Providers Have To Say...

Joining MedcoShare has been a true dream for a first time business owner like myself. Having the peace of mind of a consistent overhead month to month, while also having the freedom to sign up for as much or as little time as I need, has provided a wonderful combination of flexibility and simplicity.

The facilities at MedCoShare are clean, professional, and what you would expect from a high-quality medical office. My patients agree, commenting frequently on how nice the office space is. I have had the opportunity to interact with many members of the MedCoShare team... They will do what they can to help your practice grow and minimize the headaches of leasing medical office space.

- Dr. Kavalek | Co-owner/Co-founder of Blue Ocean Health Direct Primary Care clinic

Overall, if you're a physician interested in starting or growing your practice, I highly recommend MedCoShare. They take care of the administrative tasks, offer flexibility in office hours, and have a supportive and responsive staff. They have truly been instrumental in my journey, and I'm confident they will be for you too.

- Dr. Michaela Mocanu, MD | Hypertension and Kidney Health LLC

We joined MedCoShare about a year ago and I can say with great confidence that's it's been a great experience for us so far. It's been exciting to enter the Philadelphia market. Patient feedback has been positive. There's an easy check-in process, wait times have been minimal to non-existent, and the lobby has a medspa type of vibe. We look forward to growing with MedCoShare.

The MedCoShare team has been very responsive and easy to work with when my schedule changes.  When my clients arrive, they feel safe, comfortable, and the aesthetics have an excellent image for my business.  I don't have to worry about maintaining the facilities and can focus on my equipment and patients.

Being a new small business owner in the midst of a pandemic, MedCoShare has been a blessing.  Where else could I start a business, build clients, and have a flexible membership with no long-term commitments for peace of mind during the uncertainty?!  If business speeds up or slows down then I can adjust my membership accordingly.
