Key Insights:

This episode is part of our Excellence in Leadership Series, presented by Citi. Dr. John Phipps is an expert in improving patient care. 


Always Improving. The key to improving health systems is to identify excellent performance and make it the norm. A Care Transformation Officer leads the journey from inconsistently great to consistently great.

An Exhausted System. COVID stretched the limits of the system and of caregivers. In order to maintain high quality care going forward, health systems must first look after the well-being of caregivers. 

Humility and Learning. John reminds administrators and caregivers alike: there is always more to learn. An advanced degree is merely a starting point; serious leaders continue learning throughout their career.
