ORGANIZATIONAL LEADERSHIP 2 Organizational Leadership and Interprofessional Team Development Business Practices Introduction There are many business practices, regulatory requirements, and reimbursement procedures that impact patient-centered care within a healthcare organization. While the main focus of any healthcare organization should be quality patient-centered care there are other factors that influence the delivery of care. All these influences need to be harmonious in order for there to be successful implementation of any patient centered health care model. These aspects are important in successful implementation of a patient-centered care model in any healthcare organization. One factor should not dominant over another; instead there needs to be a system of checks and balances. Business Practices A facilities business practices are developed in order to provide safe and quality care to the patients. Policies, procedures, and processes need to be developed to standardize care. Employees need to be aware of the policies to reduce inconsistencies in care which could lead to patient harm or medication or procedural errors. It is up to the facility and the managers to ensure that their employees follow the policies and procedures. Having clear standards of care reduces errors caused by the human factor. Having quality business processes in place result in improved patient outcomes. Clear business practices are imperative to increase compliance, minimize facility disorder, and reduce confusion and legal issues.
