Becoming Problem Finders And Problem Solvers with Jason Ormond, Holly Davis, and Nathan Scholes.




Episode Summary


As health administrators, we are problem finders, and more important, problem solvers!

This is the first panel-like interview episode with Jason Ormond, Holly Davis, and Nathan Scholes. We discussed the importance of being a problem finder and a problem solver in healthcare. Each of them has a different perspective from their position and experience.

They all share about the role of the leader in this situation. Teams often skip the identification of the problem phase and jump directly to the solution. With this approach, there may be a lot of confusion regarding the issue at hand. Team members will always love a positive problem finder.


Listen to this valuable panel with Bingham Memorial’s top workers and get advice on becoming a problem finder and solver!
