Role of Nurse Managers and Leaders in Reengineering of Healthcare

Reengineering in health care is a discipline that aids in reorganizing priorities, providing more cost-effective care, and increasing customer value. Reengineering should be guided by what is suitable for an organization and what it requires. If health care organizations are to survive in the future under managed care, reengineering is a key core competency.

The nurse manager’s job is to make sure that the health-care team’s efforts are recognized and that patient involvement is promoted. The position has a substantial impact on creating a professional atmosphere and establishing a culture where members of the interdisciplinary team may contribute to outstanding patient outcomes while also furthering their professions. This will aid in reengineering the hospital since management of most psychiatric conditions requires team collaboration. (Bianchi et al., 2018).

Nurse managers and leaders also contribute to advancement in healthcare by ensuring ongoing communication in the ward. Successful organizational change programs require frequent, continuing communication across numerous channels. They can create training opportunities for the nursing staff on the new advancements in the management of different conditions. For example, in a psychiatric hospital, different conditions are managed differently depending on the advancements in research. This will aid in improving their knowledge and bring a positive impact on the hospital through the implementation of the new learnt methods (Jambawo, 2018).

The managers and nurse leaders can also consult before setting performance standards, do performance appraisals and provide and receive feedback. These measures are critical for the developmental success of any hospital. Consulting the nurses will make them set realistic and achievable standards. Regular performance appraisals help identify areas of strength and those that need improvement for the development of the hospital. Feedback also helps in reengineering the hospital by identifying areas of improvement.
