It is clearly understood that at each level of empowerment there is information sharing. It can take place among patients, between the patients and health care providers or patients communicating with some external agency/ advocate (Carrin, 2009). However, traditionally information sharing was based on grassroots and community programs, but the national public health campaign has changed this through direct to consumer advertising, email and internet. Though this mass media approach is cost effective, it lacks intimacy, partnership and follow up support. This easy access to information has greatly played a role in improving the doctor-patient relationship (Anderson et al.,
Corporate Culture is then defined as the deeper consideration of major values, concepts and beliefs, that will be shared by all personnel of an organization.

Typically, evidence based practice critiques the research findings, quality improvement data and expert opinion to single out the most appropriate approaches of improvement. On the other hand, clinical research uses the existing methods and processes in the search for improvement i.e. it is based on the opinions and tradition and nothing can be done more. Indeed, the core business of the healthcare planners is to always make improvements on quality and efficiency of healthcare services. Thus, engaging in meetings where opinions, researches and other relevant knowledge is shared allows comprehensive learning, effective research and crafting or invention of better approaches to ensure patients and nurses enjoy the services and the health care environment as implied by Munhall (2012) and Torrey et al.
This option is part of a greater Queen’s strategy of population management and patient engagement. The promotion of remote patient management to be executed at MSDJH through the software MyChart app that MSHS already has implemented in certain practices.

This could potentially attract younger and healthier technological savvy population into the office that seek and appreciate this type of service. Cons: The costs involved in patient subscriptions to the software.
Clinically, physician-scientists have quick/efficient thinking skills that will allow them to partake in new treatments and/or on-the-spot ideas that could help the patient more than regular current day procedures. When analyzing/reviewing research, the physician-scientist will have experience with clinical symptoms and the emotional response of patients which allows for the potential movement of new discoveries to the bed-side. Overall, physician-scientists take their skills from "bench side to bed side" allowing for a smooth transition of new innovations to the clinic but also, play important roles in communicating new medical research to the general public. Therefore, they act as important "middlemen" that are knowledgeable about the healthcare needs/problems of society and how scientific research can solve them. This allows for the physician scientist to, directly and indirectly, serve a vast number of people, more than the reach of a single physician ever

Regarding competition, Rush hired a designated staff member to cultivate relationships with physicians and community hospitals. Also, a new referral and consultation guide was introduced. In terms of regulation, Rush University Medical Center promoted transparency by furnishing the public a list of offered programs and services, results of clinical research data, outlined superb nursing care quality, and explained a collaborative approach to patient care (Long, n. d.). As a result of the marketing campaign, Rush University Medical Center realized an increase in admissions by 2.3%, outpatient growth by 10%, $20 million profit margin improvement over the previous year, elevated consumer satisfaction, and an above average payer mix (Long, n. d.).

Physician/hospital collaborations, when structured properly, can yield a host of benefits, including improvements in several key areas: economics, quality of care, operating performance, resource consumption and physician retention and leadership. The hospitals will have to evaluate physician competency level, even when under contract. The reason being is because hospitals are held accountable regardless, but if they had a more reliable staff it could reduce lawsuits. Physicians rely on hospitals for the use of their facilities and also to gain income. To have financial security is a motivation alone for physicians that work in the
with issues associated with running a business, and it greatly lacks the required management competencies needed to effectively lead and restructure the current healthcare model. Because healthcare leadership must now model itself like a business, it forces you to identify leadership competency gaps and confront the leadership shift from healthcare-specific leaders to business leaders.
