Board Strategy and Education
The Healthcare environment is very dynamic. The Board of Directors’ role in anticipating and protecting against risks facing the organization, is indeed an important one. The Dahlen Company helps Boards understand risks to their brand and community image. We will help you work through delicate questions related to strategy, quality performance, patient satisfaction, culture, price transparency, financial strength, leadership transitions, medical staff, Board excellence, and general preparedness for known risks. Select a topic for your next Board development education session.
Sometimes executive teams just need to get away and concentrate on long-term strategy. Retreats are perfect opportunities to re-energize, clarify, and dream the future for your organization. The Dahlen Company can help prepare the issue analysis and Strengths/Weaknesses/ Opportunities and Threats for team discussion. We will help you keep the consumer in the forefront, in facilitating your next retreat. Participants will come away with clarity on next steps to make your organization the best it can be.
For the past decade, health systems have worked tirelessly to improve performance results. The Dahlen Company brings its expertise and experience in Quality Improvement, Six Sigma and the Baldrige Quality Award framework to frontline leaders. We can put simple tools and core concepts into the hands of your supervisory and management staff. The tools are powerful and easy to implement and will help your organization along its continuous improvement journey.
Occasionally Boards need to find an Interim CEO quickly. The Dahlen Company has experience in short-term situations where it’s important for the team to stay on mission and stay on strategy, while your future CEO is recruited. We bring expertise and stability at a potentially vulnerable time and will establish key relationships, both internal and external. We can assess your needs and, if desired, objectively evaluate affiliations with large health systems that might benefit your community. Interim CEO services are available to community hospitals, federally-qualified health centers and nonprofit healthcare associations.
