Managing from the Middle Podcast
Through our work with rural hospitals, a need has emerged for education directed towards mid-level managers (MLMs) on the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of value-based care and population health, as well as tools and strategies to help MLMs lead others in this time of change.
Mid-level managers play a unique role in the transition to value and serve as a critical link between senior hospital leadership and front-line staff. In many rural hospitals, MLMs are often promoted from highly skilled technical roles and can benefit from resources that help them to develop the knowledge and skills to successfully lead change.
With the support of the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy, this six-part podcast series was developed by the Small Rural Hospital Transition (SRHT) Project. The audience for these podcasts is MLMs from clinical and non-clinical departments. Our podcast guests are MLMs from rural hospitals as well as subject matter experts who will share best practices to prepare MLMs to lead through this time of significant change in the health care environment.
