Gurpreet Dhaliwal: A Bottom-Up Approach to Physician Accountability

Gurpreet Dhaliwal: A Bottom-Up Approach to Physician Accountability


What do school teachers and medical surgeons have in common? They both hate when other people tell them how to do their jobs. Both are people-oriented and passion-driven careers that push oneself to their limits. Yet, how do we get these hard-working professionals to not just work but work better and smarter. The answer is deceptively simple: ask them how they would like to be measured and what they should improve on. Gurpreet Dhaliwal makes the case for inclusionary practices to create self-motivating performance metrics.

Dhaliwal’s Bottom-Up approach taps into the ego, expertise, and experience of these professionals. By giving them to opportunity to play by their own rules, physicians become competitive, creating a system where everyone is trying to better themselves by their industry-specific metrics. This groundbreaking system erases the disdain and avoidance of outside metrics because the physicians themselves crafted them.

A researcher, problem solver, and professor of medicine at University of California San Francisco, Dhaliwal has unparalleled knowledge of the healthcare industry and the tools with which to fix it.
