Behavioral Health Interim Management Approach

As Interim Managers, we work to sustain and improve operating services, consistent regulatory compliance, quality of care, clinical and business functions, and introduce field best practices. We work closely with staff.

We use a structured sequence of positive hands on management based on daily interaction with the hospital, organization, psychiatrists, medical staff, practitioners, administrators, quality, safety, and compliance managers, nurses, therapists, billing and other departments

Experience supports a reasoned process of deepening our understanding of the key issues and impediments, then working as collaboratively as possible to define and monitor actionable operations management and improvements that staff can embrace

Teaching and modeling are important tools along with quantified metrics that shift problem solving from perception and guessing to innovation and solution

We use tools / metrics we have developed to improve quality and performance of the operations

Positive momentum and change occurs through team effort guided by hard data, responsive, inquisitive, and transparent leadership

We provide frequent, structured written communications and status reports to the health care system’s leadership
