New Physician Orientation
Audio: “Hello. I’m John Hensing. As Chief Medical Officer at Banner Health, I can assure you that we are an organization dedicated to providing the highest quality care. We place tremendous value on evidence-based medicine and route every decision, whether it relates to systems, policies or procedures. In evidence-based practices, they place the patient as the highest priority.”
Text: Banner Clinicians are called to identify, design and implement evidence-based practices to improve patient care.
Audio: “We engage our clinicians to do their due diligence across Banner to identify, design and implement evidence-based practices, to improve patient care and ultimately the patient experience. As an example, our OB Clinical Consensus Group recently addressed the issue of elective delivery before 39 weeks gestation. They thoroughly reviewed the medical literature and the positions taken by the American College of OB-GYN and the March of Dimes. With guidance by Banner Health obstetricians, the clinical policy produced has significantly decreased elective deliveries before 39 weeks gestation. We look to our organized hospital medical staffs to provide oversight for the quality of the care, treatment and services provided by all privileged clinicians in Banner hospitals regardless of whether they are independent practitioners or a member of the Banner medical group.”
Text: Banner medical staffs are responsible for holding their members to the highest professional standards of behavior dealing with patients and other caregivers.
Audio: “These same medical staffs are also responsible for holding their members to the highest professional standards of behavior dealing with patients and other caregivers. By virtue of being a highly collaborative organization, we ensure that, regardless of what Banner hospital, health center or clinic in which you practice, you and your patients benefit from a robust network of support systems, including enhanced electronic medical records and physician order entry systems. We also provide a wide range of research studies under the umbrella of Banner Research at our two internationally recognized research facilities as well as our many hospitals.
Our graduate medical education programs involving over 250 house staff continue to receive national recognition. To help consumers make informed decisions about their care, we were among the first health care systems to begin publically reporting information about our performance in such areas as patient safety, mortality rates, infection prevention and much more.”
Text: As a physician at Banner you play a key role in our ability to continually improve our performance.
Audio: “As a physician at Banner, you play a key role in our ability to continually improve our performance. Banner is repeatedly recognized in national rankings for clinical quality. Such honors are a testament to the commitment of our clinicians. Consistent, reliable, evidence-base care is a hallmark of Banner Health and what enables us to make a difference in people’s lives.”
