WHA Physician Engagement and Retention Toolkit Presented at Summit

April 07, 2017

The Wisconsin Hospital Association’s Physician Engagement and Retention Toolkit was presented by Charles Shabino, MD, WHA chief medical officer, at the Wisconsin Medical Society’s "Leadership Summit to Improve Physicians’ Experience," March 30.

The Toolkit, published in December 2016, was created by the WHA Physician Leaders Council in recognition that given the high level of integration of physicians into Wisconsin’s health systems and thus the strategic importance of retention of a cadre of engaged, energized, resilient and committed physicians, an ongoing assessment and evaluation of potential ideas, strategies and resources is worthwhile. The Toolkit provides a series of 140 questions and considerations to help hospitals and health systems review and refine their unique physician retention strategies.

The Toolkit is available to member administrative and physician leaders upon request. Email your request to Kim Drone, WHA government relations coordinator, at kdrone@wha.org.
