about

Employee turnover is a costly and a disruptive issue in healthcare. Investing in your staff, developing pathways to learning, and educating them on core competencies will decrease staff turnover, increase staff involvement, and productivity. Employee turnover has a negative effect on your revenue cycle, through employee productivity, training, onboarding new employees, communication, and overall staff satisfaction.

Investing in your employees through training and leadership development, is the first step. Work design makes or breaks productivity, and good work design mixes human skills and automation, to get the best of both worlds. Companies should enrich jobs and enable people to use their skills rather than routinize; enriched work engages people’s intellect, energy, effort, and commitment to your organizations mission.

Reengineering business processes should always yield more interesting and challenging work for employees, engage employees, increase retention, allowing you to spend less on training new and employees. It’s simple to combine flexible technology with engaged employees and create a productive workflow process.  Well-designed and supported training can result in enhanced job-related knowledge and skills. People must understand the reasons for the development and understand the consequences if the competencies are not put to use.

She conducted statewide practice reviews for all specialties and made recommendations regarding practices and processes to safeguard both the patient and provider. Medical records reviews (paper and electronic) to determine whether provider actions were accurately and completely documented within the medical record were a regular part of risk management reviews and one of the areas in which she is considered an expert. Robin found her niche when hired by e-MDs in February of 2005. Her exciting and inspiring presentations for e-MDs and the role she plays in educating both customers and e-MDs staff are what she loves best.
