Abstract:
Dallas and Fort Worth are the anchor cities of the 12 county area in North Texas referred to as the Metroplex with a population of approximately 6,000,000. Dallas and its suburbs have one of the highest concentrations of corporate headquarters in the United States promoting a competitive, growing healthcare market through a favorable payor mix and educated clients. In this highly competitive healthcare market, our MPD Collaborative represents nine hospitals of approximately 75 hospitals located in a 100 mile radius. During the fall of 2007, two MPDs from Magnet-designated organizations spearheaded an effort to develop and implement a local MPD Collaborative. The short-term goal was to facilitate networking opportunities for area MPDs. Long-term goals included education and mentoring for new MPDs or those on the Magnet journey and partnering with ANCC to co-host a national conference. With those goals in mind, the MPD Collaborative was born. Within the first year the Collaborative hosted a group from the Netherlands exploring the Magnet designation process and hosted an ANCC-sponsored On the Journey to Excellence workshop. For collaboration to flourish in a competitive environment, a shared style of group leadership was implemented. Future directions will be increasing the mentoring to facilities on the journey toward Magnet designation and redesignation. The MPD collaborative is knowledgeable and passionate about the Magnet process. Together the energy and creative, innovative flow is astounding. Sharing our blended wisdom from the field is a powerful gift to new hospitals looking for direction.
