How to develop the shared vision of your private practice?
Feb 2019

When you are working in such an environment which is shared with physicians on the several cases of strategic planning, one of the most important elements which require focusing is a vision. It is crucial for the shared vision to be developed under such circumstances. In most cases, it has been seen that the practical vision comes into existence after one has had an idea of the vision of the patients.  This way the organization comes to know which way will work best with regard to the vision of the patients, strategic planning works best under this practice.  Once you are following the above-stated practice, it is equally important to have an idea regarding the whereabouts of practice, in the coming years, 4 to 5 to be precise. You have to have an idea about where do you see yourself in the next five years, based on how well have you planned things strategically.

Development of a shared vision:

This time span ranging from three to five years provides a base for the description of any practice in broad terms, involving the mixture of programs, the differences of status and reputation within and outside the boundaries of the community under target, relations with physicians and the major accomplishments. There have to be certain descriptions regarding a couple of things which include; governing techniques, communication with various groups, the scope of our program, finance, its depth, members in the staff and to what extent things are visible. Now, this above-stated visioning can be performed in many ways, as stated below as well.

  • First and foremost what groups can do is that they can draw out their vision keeping mind the future. After that, you can work towards realizing the factors which are commonly providing a further basis of joint vision.
  • Each member of the group should be responsible enough to know the things they are supposed to be saying while talking to any newspaper representative about five years from now. Basic knowledge about the key accomplishments and status needs to be there. This knowledge will prove to be beneficial for you when you need a basis for joint vision.
  • Another way of doing this could be that the various groups taking part can play the part of different stakeholders, and what’s meant by stakeholders are the physician’s partners and patients. Now each of them will play a major role in the development of a proper series of various statements, which will further describe the entire purpose of the practice by outlining the expected number of years. This leads to the practice of visions being meshed together as well as shared.

Now, what can be done by the physicians is that they can devise a worksheet which is formal in terms of the whole idea, in this worksheet the physicians will be making clear whether they look at the practice in specific term or broader terms. This category includes both broad and specific.
