Healthcare Leaders Reveal Uncertainties About Industry Direction
Health Leaders Media

Dedication to mission is strong and getting stronger, but just how to accomplish that mission is less certain, according to results of the 2011 HealthLeaders Media Industry Survey. Of nearly 1,500 healthcare leaders, 88% said their organization’s dedication to mission is strong or very strong. That’s up from 80% and 79%, respectively, in the 2010 and 2009 editions of the survey.

But priorities are shifting. While quality/patient safety continues to rank at the top of the list, cost reduction has climbed to No. 2 on the list, up from third place last year and sixth place the year before.
