Creation of a Charter on Organizational Professionalism


Medical professionalism is a key driver of quality and cost in health care. The increasing complexity of regulations and financial incentives within the health care delivery system requires deliberate attention to promoting environments that encourage effective professional behavior. While the behavior of individual physicians and their relationships with their patients has been the main focus of medical professionalism, the context in which physicians practice has an important influence on their behavior.  Thus, this project will build on and complement an existing charter on medical professionalism among physicians to create a charter on organizational professionalism directed at health organizations and systems . In defining the professional competencies and behaviors that organizations can leverage, the charter will seek to strengthen the importance health care systems place on the organization’s role in creating a culture that enables medical professionals to provide high-quality care. This project will support the development of this charter through meetings composed of experts in medical professionalism and representatives from health systems.
