Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) April 01, 2014
Managing change, and the loss of effectiveness that often accompanies it, is a major challenge for healthcare providers in the reform era. As the exclusive healthcare certified partner to offer the Change Diagnostic Index©, PYA is assisting physicians, hospitals, health systems, and ancillary care organizations manage instability caused by change.
"The Change Diagnostic Index© is a change management analytical tool that measures six specific symptoms of behavior to gauge an individual’s readiness to accept change,” said Kristen Lilly, a Consulting Manager at PYA who, along with PYA Principal Lori Foley, has been granted the Change Diagnostic Index© certification.
"HR initiatives are often viewed as ‘touchy-feely’ and are hard to quantify,” Lilly said. “The Change Diagnostic Index© not only puts a number on these symptoms, but also identifies areas of risk for the organization. Physician groups, hospitals, or any other healthcare organization that is experiencing an organizational change, or is in a period of instability can benefit from using the Change Diagnostic Index©.”
Lilly, along with Change Diagnostic Index© developer Dr. Victoria Grady, will speak at the 2014 Change Management Conference which is being held March 30-April 2, at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando.
“Organizations undergoing changes in leadership, mergers and acquisitions, and implementation of software are perfect candidates to use the Change Diagnostic Index© to help pinpoint areas of potential instability among staff and address these areas at their root-cause,” Lilly said. As a result, leadership armed with this critical information can focus efforts and lessen the risk of instability in their organization, improving the organization’s odds for a successful change. This change management tool could potentially redesign how leaders approach change initiatives within their organizations.
“Because of massive change and upheaval in the healthcare industry, the Change Diagnostic Index© offers enormous potential in helping physicians, hospitals, and other organizations navigate through it,” Grady said. “We are extremely happy to have the expertise of PYA as our exclusive partner for healthcare.”
