What Can Hospital Leaders Learn from a Flock of Geese?
Date:5/26/2013

s, "Succeeding as an accountable care organization is all about seamless teamwork and communication between different parts of the health care industry that have always operated in silos before.”
He believes the requirements of becoming an ACO are kind of like a flock of geese ingested in a jet engine. “A goose-induced engine failure will cause you to change your flight plan. If you don’t change, you’ll fail. ACO requirements fundamentally change the way you must provide care. If, like Capt. Sully, respiratory leaders have a systematic way to respond to the sudden disruption of their normal operations, they will succeed, and the transition will have a happy ending for them and their patients."
