Making Healthcare Organization Antifragile
Thompson et. al. According to Thompson and colleagues (2019), building resilience can make organizations less vulnerable. There are many strategies that can help you achieve this, such as diversifying your revenue streams and building solid relationships with customers and other stakeholders. Anderson et. al. describe another way of increasing an organization’s strength: adopting systems thinking. (2020). Consider the entire organization as one complex system. There are many interdependent pieces that could impact each other unexpectedly. Understanding these relationships will help managers anticipate problems and be more effective in responding to them. To make healthcare organizations more resilient, one idea could be drawn from this information: a plan for resilience that details specific actions that will be taken to address potential disruptions.
