Examples of organizations that have achieved high levels of physician engagement will be highlighted. Reported reasons for satisfaction and engagement include having a fair compensation model, equitable distribution of work; supportive, humble and group oriented colleagues; valuing work-life balance, transparency; culture of patient and group centeredness; collaborative relationships with system leadership and CVSL staff; shared vision; a legacy of looking forward, and inclusive leadership at the practice level. Also to be discussed are the current threats to physician engagement such as changes to compensation, system consolidation, re-alignment of goals and the culture created by the increased financial pressures facing health systems today.
