Task Teams in Hospital Management

What are Task Teams?

Task Teams are similar to Task Forces except that in ROJHMC, the term to be used is Task Team to emphasize teamwork in performing tasks or assignments.

One of the criteria for performance excellence of a hospital or medical center is that there are evidences of participation and collaboration in accomplishing corporate and / or business unit tasks by all staff of the medical center from governing body to the rank and file.  The best evidences to present are the formation of task teams with involvement of all staff and with distribution of work, their terms of references and their accomplishments. Every staff has to present evidence that he / she is a member of a Task Team.

Aside from the benefits of teamwork and collaboration among all the staff of ROJHMC, specialization, continuity and succession planning can be derived from the formation of Task Teams.

Note: Task Teams will be institutionalized in ROJHMC as they together with created committees will constitute the concrete evidences of teamwork and collaboration of all staff of the medical center. (Task Teams vs Committees – essentially the same. However, committee usually refers to a group of persons created on a long-term basis for making policies or for development of certain programs or projects. Task Team usually refers to a group of persons created on a short-term basis for making policies or for development of certain tasks. Task Teams may be kept or maintained for a long time as indicated such as there is recurring need for them or they may be transformed into Committees.)

There will be documented terms of references (TOR) or job descriptions for each Task Team.  (This also applies to Committees.)
