The Importance of Teams
If positioned properly within the health care industry great advantage and consumer preference is gained to bolster organizational sovereignty. To do so requires a dynamic plan to incorporate competitive systems, and a workforce of concentrated efforts to overshadow all others. “No Man Is an Island.” (John Donne,) This profound statement can serve as thought provoking cohortative where teamwork is cornerstone to the administration of duties, and project management.

Employees have coupled or teamed to discuss, and take action as goals, and objectives are assigned. Employees are expected to be a functional part of a performing team. There are a variety of aspects of teams important to identify.

In addition, a comprehensive overview will assist employees to learn to function in leadership roles and to lend personal experience and motivation to team members, while guiding a project in the direction expected for success.
A Purposeful Approach to Health Care:
The curriculum will aid in developing not only the core values of the organization, but also enhance the personal investment made by employees in providing quality information and care to consumers in a timely manner. The curriculum can serve to identify for employee, the importance of inter-professional relationships important for success. The organizations call center must perform and function in a manner that patients respect and appreciate. Cohesion and competency are a must when providing services to patients, and critical to avoiding negative outcomes, and patient demise. The team approach is depicted for employees in a manner that aligns each individual role to that of a team of surgeons relying upon one another in an open heart surgery performed on a frightened three-year-old child. As parents are stricken with the fear of losing their child, each...
