Making Healthcare Leadership Decisions
Dr. Dan Berman devised Dynamic Balance, a proprietary management decision-making tool. There has been considerable worry over the years about how to conserve healthcare expenses while yet ensuring that funds are available to help people who are uninsured or underinsured. The Burning Question that the Dynamic Balance assists Administrators in answering is:
How does the healthcare facility/agency provide high-quality care to all patients despite limited financial resources? This is balanced against the aim to accomplish the Social Justice goal of providing equal healthcare to all people.
What Is the Dynamic Balance and How Does It Work?
The administrator must balance all of the dynamic pressures while making decisions about the utilization of care and resources. The outside forces of government, economic, and consumer demands are among these forces, as are the consumer’s healthcare needs, the facility’s budgetary needs to be sustainable, and the outside forces of government, economic, and consumer demands. Every day, the leadership of the healthcare facility/agency feels the weight of these forces as they are exerted by diverse stakeholders.
The ultimate purpose of this methodology is to ensure that the healthcare facility/agency maintains a dynamic equilibrium of these pressures.
