1. Define clear examples of your focus areas
The preliminary step in creating your strategy template is to come up with a few focus areas to section out your hospital strategy template. These can link closely to the healthcare plan but may also be narrower as it's specifically focusing on hospitals.
An example of a focus area to use could be: customer perspective
This means that within the customer perspective area, the objectives, KPIs, and projects will link to customer car overall as you will try better such an experience for your end client.
2. Think about the objectives that could fall under that focus area
The next step will be to create 3-4 strategic objectives. A strategic objective is a result a company strives to achieve. These are usually actioned by KPIs and projects.
An example of an objective within the focus area 'customer perspective' can be to Boost medical care around quality, convenience, and compassion
3. Set yourself Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to tackle the objective
KPIs are measurable targets implemented as ways of tracking overall progress at reaching your strategic objective. To give you an idea of the type of KPIs to use in this hospital strategy plan you can take a look at the healthcare KPIs article by Cascade.
Two examples of KPI's that relate to the above objective are: Decrease median waiting time for emergency surgical procedures by 12 days and Improve the ratio of outgoing patient calls with follow-up questions and concerns by 75%
4. Implement related projects to achieve the KPIs
The final step in ensuring your strategic template is all set will be to create respective projects that help achieve and track your KPIs and directly correlate to our strategic objectives. Projects can be done collectively as a team or individually and on cascade, you can assign individuals to be in charge of certain projects for accountability.
Two examples of projects that can be implemented within this hospital plan are: Set feasible staff targets for improving quality patient experience and Incorporate job rotation with more staff onboard
5. Utilize Cascade tools to track and visualize performance.
Now that your strategic plan has been devised it may be useful to visualize your progress through the Cascade dashboard. Here you can create a number of dashboards depending on what goals you want to map out, including dividing your KPI and projects up to track them separately.
Within this hospital strategy template, there are 2 dashboards that have been created.
