Being a health care leader frequently means navigating treacherous terrain: regulatory updates. The impacts of some updates are an easy stroll, like a small change in a quality metric, while others are a significant undertaking that impacts the whole organization, like a change in payment structure.
We surveyed 80,000 employees last year, asking them to rate their agency in 7 categories. Training received was the second lowest score.
