Much of the work in a Radiation Oncology practice or department is patient care based on highly technical knowledge of physics and radiobiology. The different perspective of the administrator offers many ways to add value to the technical work. Starting with initial interviews for MDs and physicists, the administrator helps choose individuals who are a good fit for the team. Standard orientation topics, which include culture and administrative priorities, lead to efficient onboarding of new employees. Utilizing a structured approach to considering new ideas, the administrator helps align new services with organizational priorities. Finally, in this era of institutional mergers, knowing what information will help leaders consistently evaluate Radiation Oncology practices for investment facilitates consideration of most relevant factors. Let's explore specific ideas around these topics, which are sure to add value to your daily work!
Goal : To explore specific ways an administrative leader in Radiation Oncology can add value to a department or practice.
Objective 1 : To understand the importance of the administrator's contribution to MD and physics interviews for employment
Objective 2 : To define a standard process for anyone in the department to use, to consider implementation of a new service or procedure.
Objective 3 : To explain factors to consider in evaluating a new Radiation Oncology practice for partnership.

As healthcare systems merge and grow, Radiation Oncology leaders are responsible for ensuring quality by maintaining effective relationships among faculty and staff at multiple locations. To do this well, it is helpful to have a standard approach that involves ongoing communication around issues of importance to all parties. Because physician and physics faculty from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Department of Radiation Oncology practice at eight locations across the state, leaders have created standard processes for maintaining productive relationships for success. Since sites vary by size, community context, and contractual arrangements, administrators must be alert to ways to demonstrate respect for all involved, while enhancing relationships that lead to quality outcomes. The investment of time yields impressive returns…let's discuss practical ideas for implementation!
Goal : To offer practical elements of a standard, efficient plan for managing Radiation Oncology relationships at remote sites.
Objective 1 : To understand the impact of ongoing mergers of multiple sites, on the main campus Radiation Oncology leaders
Objective 2 : To describe challenges associated with maintaining relationships for quality outcomes among faculty and staff at multiple sites.
Objective 3 : To detail effective, standard processes for maintaining high quality relationships for positive outcomes at remote sites.
