Com­mu­ni­cate goals: “When you com­mu­ni­cate what the vi­sion is and you lis­ten to what peo­ple have to say, they’re far more likely to change with you,” says Dr. Mo­hamed Ham­dan of the Univer­sity of Wis­con­sin.

Re­view data with car­di­ol­ogy teams: “It adds a lot of ef­fi­ciency to the game,” says Dr. Adam Sab­bath of HonorHealth John C. Lin­coln Med­i­cal Cen­ter.

Solve prob­lems to­gether: “This is a very peo­ple-de­pen­dent industry, so it re­ally takes ev­ery­body at ev­ery level,” says Dr. Michael Gault of Sad­dle­back Me­mo­rial Med­i­cal Cen­ter.

Pro­vide spe­cialty care: “If you can do the com­plex cases, then you can do the rou­tine cases very well as well,” says Dr. Michael Pe­tracek of Van­der­bilt Univer­sity.

Change pro­to­cols when needed: “We re­ally look for things that we’re strug­gling with and think about im­ple­ment­ing new pro­cesses,” says Dr. Marvin Kon­stam of Tufts Med­i­cal Cen­ter.
