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 the practice’s strategy and vision. Examples of organizational charts are provided below.
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.
