A respected presence in the field of pediatrics, Dr. Ramesh Sachdeva serves as the senior vice president and chief clinical officer at Florida’s Nicklaus Children’s Health System. As part of his responsibilities, Dr. Ramesh Sachdeva works closely with the president of the hospital using the Dyad model to ensure efficiency in operations.
The Dyad model is an organizational structure whereby both clinical and non-clinical hospital personnel work together under a defined system of cooperation designed to help medical institutions achieve their goals. The Dyad model has its origins dating back to 1908 at the Mayo Clinic when Dr. William Mayo, a physician, appointed Harry Harwick, an administrator, to assist him in managing business operations and creating a suitable environment for business expansion.
In today’s fast-changing healthcare sector, the Dyad leadership structure creates an enabling environment for partnerships among various departments. Under this structure, clinical leaders with medical expertise work together with their non-clinical colleagues with expertise in operations, human resources, and finance to complement each other and ensure every facet of a hospital’s operations is well-managed.
