In a group setting, it is not unusual for individual anesthesiologists to function on their own rather than as a cohesive unit. In addition to the way most anesthesia groups are structured, day-to-day clinical demands often prevent physicians from investing sufficient time in implementing emerging best clinical and business practices. 

Symptoms of leadership issues in anesthesia departments include:

  • Lack of an action plan to address strategic and operational initiatives of the hospital
  • Survey-readiness may be lacking
  • Clinician turnover forces the routine use of locum tenens
  • Anesthesia services and OR service needs are not aligned
