Some departments under the same roof can be very disconnected to one another. It takes personal diligence and hard work to ensure you know the correct channels to get things done.

    I worked at Indiana University Health full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have the greatest respect for the clinicians at IUH who believe that competent, compassionate patient care is their purpose. In IS I got experience that would have been unobtainable in any other Central Indiana hospital. I worked with some smart, experienced, and kind colleagues.

    Cons

    Enterprise leadership that is detached from realities other than the bottom line. That is *the* con from which all others emanate. Failure of leadership has created a domino effect of issues. No career path for IS analysts, project managers, managers, etc. Poor merit raises compared to compensation of leadership. Inexplicably top-heavy with C-level executives, and adding more, while vital employees below that level are cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Situation: Reduction in workforce in the IS department considered salary costs, but not value to the enterprise. Instead of the promised cuts in leadership and low performers, they RIFed in the middle of the IS organization and an illogical number of high performing, experienced, subject matter experts were shoved out the door. Morale is low and the remaining talent is bleeding out of the IS department of its own accord. My Advice: Live the mission statement of the enterprise, if you care to look at it. Don't live the money. The money is extremely important, but if you live the mission you will find better ways to deal with the money. Remember that the only purpose is the patient. Get out and really look at the clinical environment and processes. Require all IS people to get out their isolated and insulated space and "round" regularly in hospitals. Engage clinical staff to find out what gives them pain. Hire the best people for IS, compensate them accordingly, support them, stay out of their way while they use the talent you wanted when you hired, then keep those people. Apply the Studer principle you paid for but consciously ignored: support and compensate your top performers, foster and raise your mid performers to as close to the top as they can get, and get rid of the low performers. As for the latter, in IUH IS the bottom 20% could go out the door and, after some adjustment, productivity and quality would increase.
