Your Next Employer should be Focused on the Future of Healthcare

Posted on | Posted By | 0 Comments

This is probably an obvious statement to many readers of this blog, but healthcare is focused on the future like never before. Whether you’re a supporter of Obamacare or not, the American approach to healthcare was and in many ways, is in desperate need of an overhaul.

More than likely, wherever you’re interviewing for a job these days, the hospital, group, or practice is preoccupied in some way with the future. That’s fine, but what are they doing about the future? What steps are they taking to make sure they’re best equipped to meet the demands of the future?

Recently, I wrote an article for Healthcare Executive Exchange Magazine on Gramercy Surgery Center, a freestanding, Article 28 facility, and how its development strategy is focused on the future.

Gramercy was founded in 2006 by Katy R. Chiang, chief executive officer and president. It is operated and managed by Jeffrey Flynn, chief operating officer and administrator, who joined the center when it was established. Located in New York City, Gramercy is one of Manhattan’s leading multispecialty centers.

Flynn said the organization’s development strategy over the last nine years has been rooted in his team’s cognizance of future trends.

“Gramercy’s success has been our ability to kind of look at what’s coming down the pike and being ahead of the curve because we’re always evolving.”

Gramercy was originally an out-of-network center from 2006 to 2009, but after the 2008 economic crash, some of the services it offered, such as podiatry, were no longer in demand.

“We looked for other things,” Flynn said. “We expanded to other specialties. The one good thing in ambulatory care is that everything always changes.”

Flynn said the team had to step back and reevaluate which services were needed, which weren’t, and which services needed to be added to their offerings.

It’s this willingness to change with the times that should be a characteristic of your next employer and their strategic vision. We’ll have more on Gramercy in upcoming posts.

As physicians and advanced practitioners who are looking for jobs, what kind of a future focus are you looking for from an employer? What is your perspective on the future of healthcare and how your specialty will be affected by that future?
