Pediatric practice organizational charts can widely vary depending on the size of the practice, and
visually outline the reporting relationships for every employee within the practice. Organizational charts
facilitate the implementation of a practice structure that aligns its human capital to
strategy and vision. Examples of
organizational charts are
Basic Organization Chart
Typically, this organizational chart is used for small pediatric practices directed by a solo pediatrician. The pediatrician oversees the practice's operations as a whole, while the Practice Manager deals with day-to-day administrative functions of the practice.
Organizational Chart with Executive Committee (Board of Directors)
Larger pediatric practices can form an Executive Commitees that oversees the Practice Manager as well as the clinical and non-clinial support staff. One of the advantages of this type of structure is that it shares decision-making authority. Each pediatrician is assigned a management area (Finance, Clinical Services, Marketing, etc) and meets with the Board of Directors and Practice Manager, who then manage the practice based upon the executive decisions.
"Big Picture" Organizational Chart
Multi-site pediatric practices may typically have several layers of leadership broken out into departments with supervisors within each department. One major advantage to the “big picture” organization is that staffing responsibilites are divided among the department supervisors and does not overload the Practice Mananger staffing responsibilities.
