Abstract

Healthcare Providers are having to make quicker, riskier decisions in a competitive and regulated environment. Leaders often make these decisions with the advice of management consultants; however, top management generally lacks adequate internal support to rigorously evaluate strategic interventions or consultant recommendations and to learn from industry-wide best practices. In fact, healthcare providers generally underinvest in management support, both in evaluating best practices within the organization and in learning from past strategic interventions. The creation of evidence-based management cooperatives might be a means to change this trend.
