Bill Ghali on the topic of setting targets in healthcare
Setting targets has long been a mechanism in industrial psychology to motivate managers and workers to achieve specific organizational objectives. In the last decade, targets have become important methods of driving performance improvement in health care. However, deciding where and when to set targets is a challenge facing health care decision makers.
Dr. Bill Ghali, Physician and Scientific Director of the Institute for Public Health says, "Setting targets can be a challenge because there is always a question of feasibility within a context." He emphasizes that reducing emergency department waits is often beyond the control of emergency departments and hospitals, and is connected to availability of primary care and community-based care after hospital discharge.
