Shared Decision Making

"A company will get nowhere if all of the thinking is left to management." 
Akio Morita, Co-Founder and former Chairman, Sony Corporation

Why Shared Decision Making?

The Purpose:

To make the best, most well-informed decisions possible, towards the goal of:

  • Improving the care and treatment offered across EHC
  • Accelerating our progress toward achieving our vision

To cultivate, among all staff:

  • A spirit of pride in, and ownership of, the work they do to advance EHC's mission and vision
  • An understanding of how their work either directly or indirectly serves our patients and families
  • Enthusiasm for, and investment in, measuring, assessing and improving the care and service we offer patients, families and each other

Core Principles of Shared Decision-Making:

  • Clarity regarding how the final decision(s) will be made, and who will make it
  • Identification and involvement of key stakeholders
  • Empowerment of staff and individuals involved
  • Follow-up once the decision has been made
