'When Dean Health Systems realized that significant change would be required to continue to thrive, several initiatives were advanced to stimulate this necessity. As part of this change management effort, I chaired a Practice Management Task Force and worked closely with Jeanan Yasiri on the daunting task of engaging the organization in improving patient access, physician productivity, and practice capacity.
Jeanan was largely responsible for organizing and developing the various analyses and ultimately the solutions the Task Force required. This was successful in large part due to the true 'physician-administrator' team concept employed by the Task Force. During this often challenging discussion of physician change, I found Jeanan to be insightful, prepared, and able to 'think on her feet'. Jeanan made excellent use of the human resources available to the Task Force.
Ultimately, the Task Force developed innovative benchmarking tools to assess access, performance, and capacity. While controversial, all were eventually unanimously approved by the Board of Directors. Much of the credit for this again must be directed Jeanan’s way. Her willingness to broadly understand these difficult issues, come up with creative solutions, and make them understandable to her physician colleagues on the Task Force was impressive. Jeanan Yasiri certainly has shown her exceptional ability at engaging a physician-administrator group and developing a sound, creative, solution while working with the DHS Practice management Task Force. I would highly recommend Jeanan to any organization seeking thoroughness, organization, and creativity in their problem solving.'
