7 things a change management consultant can do for you

Published on
October 27, 2023
  • Is your healthcare organization considering a major organizational change ? 
  • Do you need to orchestrate a change in the way your medical and non-medical staff work ? 
  • Do you need to change your governance and processes to secure improved patient outcomes ?

Turning to a change management consultant to guide your organizational transition means you don't have to face and tackle numerous challenges on your own. A change management consultant can be the key to your success.

Here are 7 essential tasks a change management consultant can achieve for you !

1. A change management consultant will analyze and diagnose your change needs

Your change management consultant will commence by conducting a comprehensive assessment of your organization's current state. For instance, in the face of transitioning to a more data-centric approach, the consultant will : 

  • assess the context that is leading to the change, the sponsor and sponsorship coalition and stakeholders, 
  • identify ways to enhance support for the change from key players,
  • look into your organization's past experiences with change and how much transformation is going on in your organization. 

This analysis will form the basis for your change strategy.

2. A change management consultant for developing a personalized change strategy

Drawing from the analysis, your consultant will craft a tailor-made change management plan to shepherd you through the transformation.

For instance, if the goal is to implement a new electronic health record (EHR) system, the strategy will outline phased implementation, training schedules, and communication plans aligned with your specific needs and priorities.

3. Managing resistance to change with a change management consultant

Human beings do not enjoy leaving habits behind and adopting new ways of working unless they understand the reason why the change is needed and how that aligns with the bigger purpose of the organization. Such lack of understanding will result in reluctance to adopt new technologies or procedures…

If that occurs, then your consultant could help you by identifying and mitigate this resistance by creating a culture of openness and providing a safe space for concerns. 

For example, when introducing a new telemedicine system, your consultant can facilitate dialogues and training sessions to address physician concerns and build confidence in the technology.

4. Implement an internal communication plan

Transparent and timely communication is vital for healthcare organizations. Your consultant will collaborate with your team to design a comprehensive communication strategy. 

For instance, when planning a reorganization, your consultant will ensure that all staff members are well-informed about their roles and responsibilities in the new structure, reducing uncertainty and anxiety.

5. Offer group training for skill development thanks to a change management consultant

Change often necessitates new competencies. Your consultant will help structure training programs tailored to healthcare staff. For instance, when rolling out a new diagnostic tool, the consultant can organize workshops to familiarize clinicians, administrators and staff with the equipment and interpret results effectively.

6. Measuring change results and impact

Change management in healthcare doesn't stop at implementation. 

Your consultant will ensure that the organization continues tracking the impact of change on patient care and organizational efficiency. For example, when upgrading a patient information system, your consultant will advise your organization of how to use sustainable metrics to assess the time saved in accessing patient records and evaluate the effect on overall patient care.

7. A change management consultant can cultivate an innovation culture for you

In the ever-evolving field of healthcare, embracing change is synonymous with fostering innovation. Your consultant can assist in cultivating a culture of creative problem-solving and continuous improvement. 

For instance, when transitioning to value-based care, your consultant can encourage healthcare providers to explore new care models and quality improvement initiatives to enhance patient outcomes.
