New Vendor Orientation
Our Strategy Map (StratMap) 2014
Our Strategy Map helps us to align our goals and work with the
mission, vision and goals of the organization. As we “provide health
and healing to all people through trusting relationships” (our Mission),
we see progress in our efforts to “build healthy communities” (our
Vision). We categorize our work into 5Bs – Best People and
Workplace, Best Customer Experience, Best Financial Performance,
Best Growth and Best Quality. If you look at the StratMap under each
of the 5 Bs, you will see the organization’s goal – for example, under
Best Financial Performance is sustainability of our organization by
maintaining an operating margin that allows us to continue to grow and
reinvest in our organization and it’s employees. The StratMap also
includes our organizational values to guide employees in daily
interactions with each other and with our guests. Those values are
Safety, Teamwork, Integrity, Respect and Services (STIRS). Our
Customer Experience Standards are listed on the bottom of the
StratMap. These standards are expected behaviors for all of us.

need to the appropriate team

Managing Up Co-workers and
When we transfer care, we want the transition to
be seamless and comfortable.
Speak positively to the patient about coworkers
who will care for the patient after you, to reduce
patient anxiety. This also gives your co-workers
a head start in winning the confidence and trust
of the patient.
“My team members in Radiology will take excellent
care of you!”

right the first time, and the
customer is angry. It is our

with a disappointed or upset
customer. The steps to
service recovery are listed in
the next column.

the customer

the problem
• Apologize for the problem
• Fix the problem – or
transfer the problem to the
team member who can fix it

bringing the error to our
attention so we could fix it

Narrating the Care
Customer Interactions
Sacred Moments
Narrate the Care
When we use the technique of narrate the care, we
help patients, families and visitors “connect the dots.”
This helps increase their health literacy by enhancing
their understanding.
Narrating the care also helps align our words with our
actions to give a consistent experience and message.
The patient better understands what you are doing to
help them.
When we use this technique while caring for patients,
we create opportunities to maximize our potential for
improving clinical outcomes while generating customer
Examples of “Narrate the Care”

courtesy and respect for your

help you need, so when you press

The Story of the Starfish
While walking on the beach one morning, a man saw a young boy running back
and forth on the beach, throwing starfish into the ocean. He asked the boy, “Why
are you throwing starfish into the ocean?” The boy replied, “The sun is up, the tide
is going out, and these starfish will die on the beach.” The man replied, “There are
thousands of starfish up and down the beach; you can’t possibly make a
difference.” The boy picked up another starfish, ran to the breaking waves and
threw it into the ocean. “I made a difference for that one,” he said.
