Cowboys to Quarterbacks: The Art of Creating a High-Performance Medical Group from a Tradition of Independent Doctors (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


There was a time, in the not too distant past, when most Physician Group Practices were independently owned and managed by the physician's themselves. The physicians were usually fiercely independent and accountable only to their patients, community, their colleagues and to the Quality Practice of Medicine. However, today, a large majority of physician's find themselves employed by the local health system.

In his book, Cowboys to Quarterbacks, author Jim Boswell, a well-known and recognized expert in creating high-performing, highly engaged Physician Partnerships, talks about how to create a culture that truly engages the physicians to contribute fully and become active leaders, fully aligned with the overall strategies of the Health System.

The author, drawing on more than three decades as a Large Group Practice CEO, Health System Executive and Physician Alignment Consultant, takes the reader through many real-life strategies and examples to engage their physicians and to create a collaborative environment based upon trust.

This book will help the Health System & Medical Group Executives to better understand the physician's mindset, how to communicate effectively, how to create a culture of partnership and how to navigate the dynamic that exists between the independent minded physician and the Health System.

Mr. Boswell has devoted over thirty-six years to building and leading large physician group practices. He has deep expertise in medical group alignment and is highly regarded for his ability to facilitate health system integration and physician engagement. Mr. Boswell appreciates the unique challenges that arise as health systems partner with physicians. His ability to understand the needs of multiple stakeholders with competing interests has enabled him to successfully lead the acquisition and integration of over fifty disparate medical groups in his career. Mr. Boswell served as the President of Baptist Medical Group, a nonprofit subsidiary of Baptist Memorial Healthcare. He was instrumental in the strategy development and implementation of the newly created medical group. Under Mr. Boswell's guidance, Baptist formed one of the largest physician groups in the mid-South. Mr. Boswell holds a BS in Finance and an MBA from the University of Chicago.
