Siemens Healthineers Insights series Issue 2 Culture of diversity, respect, and inclusion A paper on how to ’Increase workforce productivity‘ at Main Line Health siemens-healthineers.com/transforming-care-delivery SIEMENS Healthineers About Siemens Healthineers Insights series Today, every health system struggles with rising costs and varying quality. Diagnoses and treatments are designed for typical patients. Delivery of care is fragmented and focused on volume. The patient experience journey is in its infancy. And healthcare doesn’t leverage the full potential of data. How can we change that? At Siemens Healthineers, our insights make it possible to turn challenges into opportunities. Our purpose is to enable healthcare providers to increase value by expanding precision medicine, transforming care delivery, improving patient experience, and digitalizing healthcare. As your partner for better outcomes in healthcare, we strive to provide a forum for addressing these issues, and to offer insights and new approaches. By joining the conversation with industry thought leaders and change makers, we are sharing forward-thinking ideas and solutions. We are also establishing a platform for leaders in healthcare to connect and exchange with peers. The Insights series offers actionable insights on how to tackle challenges and create solutions that work. Be inspired by best practices and engage with experts at the interface of technology and care.

This training has fostered open communication across the organization.

The 2017 turnover rate for bedside registered nurses rose over 2.0% to 16.8%. The financial cost of staff turnover is also notable,19 with an estimated salary range for a bedside registered nurse from $38,000 to $61,000, with the average cost of turnover at $49,500.

However, as shown by the leadership team, when man- aged effectively, they can have a positive impact on patient outcomes and employee satisfaction and retention. • Diversity represents a core value of a health system: The healthcare team that treats patients every day represents the people they serve and communities where they live, as well as the health system. • An engaged team-based care approach is a win-win for all: Diverse, productive, and interdisciplinary teams are more likely to think differently while identifying disparities in a patient’s treatment, and come up with innovative methods of working. The systematic reduc- tion of the risk of disruptive behavior arising between staff builds trust, and engagement in the system’s strat- egy enables the success of a team-based care approach.
