“Physician Leadership Development for the New Healthcare Environment” with North Shore-LIJ Health System’s Joseph Cabral and Jeremy Boal

From NCHL’s Human Capital Investment Conference this past November, Joseph Cabral and Jeremy Boal show how North Shore-LIJ Health System has successfully implemented its Physician High-Potential Program in the face of a changing healthcare landscape. Joseph Cabral, Senior Vice President and CHRO, and Jeremy Boal, MD, Senior Vice President and CMO, discuss the changes that North Shore-LIJ has made to develop physician leadership focused on three major goals: patient experience, quality, and financial performance.

Individuals who have demonstrated the ability to drive change as well as the ability to influence others  were selected. From North Shore-LIJ’s perspective, influence is one of the most important qualities for physician leadership as physicians as they role model behaviors such as collaboration and vision setting. North Shore-LIJ has seen increased quality of care, decreased turnover of participants, enhanced system-wide collaboration, and improved productivity among physician-led teams, all incredibly significant gains especially considering  the over 2500 employed physicians and 8000 voluntary physicians in the system. To hear more about the Physician High-Potential Program as well as the details of NS-LIJ’s success, watch the full video below.

Joseph Cabral is also the Chair of NCHL’s Physician Leadership Development LENSTM Council.
