    At Emory Healthcare, we aim to create value for our patients through focused cost saving measures. Why do you feel this is important for our organization and our patients?

      For many people, the rising costs of healthcare and insurance coverage have led them to potentially not see a provider when they are sick or injured. Because of this fact, Emory Healthcare is putting a strict emphasis on cost saving measures for their patients to really get back to their mission of serving their patients in the best way possible. For this question, talk about a cost saving measure you have been a part of in the healthcare industry where patients saw the direct result of the measure. Further add to you answer by explaining why you think cost savings is important.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "Beginning a few years ago, my current organization put a focus on an initiative to reduce length of stays in the hospital for patients to both free up space for new patients and also to help reduce costs for patients. As a nurse on the Med/Surg unit, our focus was on communication of patients when prepping for discharge. This communication could be with family or a nursing home, depending where the patient would be going. Way too many times we had seen a patient ready to go home only to find the family or home weren't ready and this often extended the hospital stay a day or two. This became burdensome on our unit and the patients costs as well."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "A very important change my current organization has been pushing over the past five years is to help reduce unnecessary lab testing and imaging for patients. The costs for those services hits patients pocket books and should only be done when medically necessary. Working as a Rad Tech five years ago, it wasn't uncommon for me to be scanning patients that had negative results that could have been determined through other methods. At that time, our providers were under a microscope to see as many patients as possible and passing them on for imaging was the easy route. Now, through a more focused approach from providers, I am seeing patients that are deemed as medically necessary for imaging and this helps ensure that the patients that truly need the services are seen a lot faster."

      Anonymous Answer

      "Creating value is very important because healthcare consumers are becoming increasingly more focused on value for service. They are looking for effective healthcare but are trying to limit out -of-pocket expenses, and it's important for healthcare providers to consider this. There is an infinite amount of healthcare dollars available, and providers are constantly being faced with smaller reimbursements. In order to be sustainable, we have to save money wherever possible. One of the cost-saving measures taken at my former workplace was to avoid unnecessary breast imaging callbacks by educating patients to coordinate their annual physical just prior to their annual mammogram screenings, to cut back on having the GP send them back for a breast ultrasound and additional mammogram images, sometimes within weeks of having a normal screening mammogram."

    With the ongoing changes in the healthcare services industry, how do you keep your knowledge current?

      Employers expect employees to stay up-to-date on their respective field, and today's technology makes this reasonably easy! List several ways that you receive your industry knowledge and stay on top of trends.

      Tell the interviewer about those daily update emails you receive from professional organizations, conferences you attend, and seminars you have taken.

      Lastly, it's a great idea to ask the interviewer what resources they refer to for industry trends. That question can start up a great conversation, and you may learn a thing or two as well.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "Every morning I listen to X Podcast because I find the information to be fresh, and valuable. In addition to this podcast, I also subscribe to a couple of industry blogs. One is ABC, and the other is XYZ. I greatly value the information shared between fellow professionals. What resources do you prefer to stay on top of industry trends and changes?"

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "I am an avid fan of google alerts! I will receive an email with the related information any time there is a major headline about the healthcare services industry. In addition to this, I also subscribe to a couple of medical-related journals."

      Anonymous Answer

      "I get several email updates and journals, such as Ultrasound Smartbrief and the SDMS journal of diagnostic medical sonography. I also do research on the internet, online webinars, and attend conferences."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Nice! You utilize reliable industry resources, which is exactly what the interviewer will want to see.

    At Emory Healthcare, we strive to treat each person with dignity. How would you say that you treat coworkers and/or patients with dignity?

      Dignity - the state of being worthy of honor or respect. In the most basic essence, treating someone with dignity is valuing everyone with the same honor and respect, no matter their background or illness. Treating others with dignity means that you don't hold biases and follow the golden rule with every single person you work with. For this question, apply how you treat others with dignity to the job that you are interviewing for and speak from the heart on the values you hold for others. Caring is one of Emory Healthcare's core values and the treatment of caring for others with dignity is held in the highest regard.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "With any patient that I care for as a Respiratory Therapist, I take the same approach no matter the patients cultural background, medical history or any other thing. From a young age, I was taught to always treat others the way I would want to be treated and for my patients, this means me bringing a knowledgeable and compassionate approach to each and every patient. On top of my patients, it is important that I treat my colleagues with respect and show them that I can earn their respect as well. With us all working towards great patient care, this is just as important as treating our patients with dignity."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "I entered the nursing field because of my innate ability to show compassion and respect for others and I bring a sense of care with dignity to every pediatric patient and their family that I work with. Having worked as a Pediatric Nurse in the Atlanta area for my whole career, I've worked with patients from all different backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses and my focused approach on compassionate care holds no biases towards anyone. Every patient that I see deserves the best from me and if hired, you'll see I hold this approach very near and dear to my heart."

      Anonymous Answer

      "I strive to treat every patient, family member, and team member with dignity and respect. From a very young age, I was immersed in hospital and clinical settings. My mom had many health challenges her entire life. As far back as age 13 or 14, I can remember going to many doctors' appointments or hospital visits to be by her side. It taught me a lot of empathy for patients and the importance of treating them with dignity and care. It's a constant reminder to me and as a result, it's what prompts me to treat all of my patients with dignity and respect."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Providing a personal story is an excellent choice. Very well done. At the end of your response, I recommend adding in some tangible examples of your empathy/approach to care with dignity.

    Emory Healthcare was initially looking for someone with 5 years' experience in a similar role. Considering you have just 2 years' experience, would you be willing to accept this position at a lower salary?

      Are you willing to earn your way up if the interviewer does not want to offer you top compensation? Discuss with the interviewer what you would expect for compensation if offered this position.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "I would be happy to earn my way to the top compensation level if required. I do assure you that, despite my being shy of experience by a couple of years, I am a top performer and you would not be disappointed in my performance."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "I understand I do not quite meet the qualifications of experience you are looking for and am willing to be compensated in adjustment to that fact. However, I do look forward to proving my worth to Emory Healthcare, Inc. in hopes to be considered for the median salary for the role."

      Anonymous Answer

    In your opinion, what makes you a great problem solver?

      Employers want to know that you have a methodical approach to problem-solving. Consider the skills and qualities that help you successfully face problems. Perhaps you have a keen eye for detail. Maybe you can see opportunity when others can only focus on the issue. Share your strengths as a problem solver, and your ability to come up with innovative solutions.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "I am a great problem solver because I do not allow stress to cloud my judgment and mute my sound decision making. I am a keen observer with a great memory which allows me to recall unique solutions or ideas."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "I believe I am a great problem solver because I am sure to gather as many facts as possible, I look at the problem and its potential solutions from multiple angles, and I am not afraid to make a creative decision that might seem off the beaten path."

      Anonymous Answer

      "I'm a sonographer; you can't be a good sonographer without the ability to analyze a problem and find a solution. Critical thinking skills and the ability to quickly asses a situation are paramount to being a good sonographer. Sonography takes skill and creativity to overcome scanning obstacles. It requires the ability to recall large amounts of information and the use of a variety of resources to find answers."

    Tell me about your healthcare related education and training.

      Take a few minutes to walk the interviewer through your formal post-secondary education as well as any on the job training. Talk about your most positive take-away's from your post-secondary experience and be sure to tie in how that experience will help you succeed in this position.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "I have a nursing degree as well as additional on the job training within clinical research. I feel that my nursing education opened up many potential industry-related avenues for me. I graduated top of my class and completed a valuable internship with 'XYZ Health Services'. All of these experiences have helped prepare me for success in this role with Emory Healthcare."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "I did my undergraduate in chemistry and medical school at St. George's University. I loved surgery, so my electives were in general surgery, trauma epidemiology, and orthopedics. I'm happy to be moving on to more responsibility as a resident. I have had some amazing mentors, and I found that I could perform with some different teaching styles."

      Anonymous Answer

      "I graduated valedictorian from X-Ray school and then graduated from Grady US school where I got high marks. I graduated magna cum laude with a degree in healthcare leadership. I also completed the emerging leader program at Emory. I am currently taking courses for the Excellence in Supervision certificate program.

    If you could expand your knowledge and expertise in any area of healthcare services, which would you choose?

      The interviewer would like to dig deeper into your true areas of interest when it comes to healthcare services. They want to know that your passions align well with what Emory Healthcare is offering. Talk to the interviewer about the areas of healthcare you would like to focus on most, and then tie that information in with what the position at Emory Healthcare would be offering you.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "If I could expand my expertise in any healthcare service area I would choose anything within primary care. This is one of the reasons I have applied with your company. I feel that your focus will be a great fit with my long-term career goals."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "I'm interested in research. One of the things that attracted me to working with your company is your ongoing community-based research collaborations. I'd be curious to hear if the [clinic/hospital/program] had any needs in this area. Is this something junior staff can be involved in?"

      Anonymous Answer

      "In the future, I see myself working in the role of a healthcare administrator within the Radiology Sciences department. I plan to continue with my education and earn a Master's degree in Healthcare Administration."

    It is often said that a career in healthcare is a 'thankless job'. How can we keep you motivated and engaged, even on the days when you feel your work goes unnoticed?

      The interviewer would like to know how they could continue to motivate you - even on the hardest of days. Do you need to have verbal recognition? Are you motivated solely by the success of your team? Talk to the interviewer about how you have stayed motivated in the past.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "I am an easily motivated individual, and it does not take much to keep me engaged. I am fully aware that healthcare-related positions can seem thankless. Honestly, the best thanks that I can get is a pat on the back now and then. The majority of my motivation comes from simply helping people."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "My chosen career was helping people at exactly the point they were least capable of censoring themselves or giving back. So, I stopped needing thanks from my patients. It's not like I don't need positive reinforcement. Everyone does. But I made a point to find it in other places instead of expecting it from my patients. Nowadays I make an effort to expressly thank the people I work with when they do a good job. I focus on being grateful to be allowed to see private, raw, emotional parts of peoples lives. And I make work-related goals I can achieve for satisfaction."

      Anonymous Answer

      "Indeed, it can be, but for me, helping patients is motivating. At times, you don't get the thank yous and accolades from patients, and that's alright. Helping patients have good outcomes and or a good patient experience is the motivator. It's not that I don't enjoy praise, but that is not the ultimate goal. The ultimate goal is to improve the patient experience and to make team members feel supported and appreciated."

      Rachelle's Answer

      It's lovely that you are motivated internally and not from external praise. This answer is good- I am offering a small tweak to help with flow.

      "Indeed, working in healthcare can feel like a thankless job at times, but I am motivated by helping my patients. Even when I do not get the thank you's or accolades from patients, I am still satisfied with my work. Contributing to positive outcomes is my most significant motivator. I enjoy praise, but that is not my ultimate goal. My primary goal is to improve patient experience and ensure my team members feel supported and appreciated."

    At Emory Healthcare we seek to hire individuals who have ambitions of growing their career. Where do you see yourself in 3-5 years?

      Every hiring manager would like to know that their investment of time and training will pay off. Assure the interviewer that you see this position as a long-term fit. How does this role with Emory Healthcare fit into your longer-term plans?

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "In 3-5 years I would like to see my career with Emory Healthcare include a path towards a leadership role. I am very keen on paving a long-term career in the healthcare services realm and would love the opportunity to do that here."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "One of the attractive points of working for Emory Healthcare, Inc. is that you care about the growth of your employees. I'm motivated to learn and am looking for a long-term fit. In 3-5 years I'd like to be grounded in the clinic, learn about this site, your patient base and earn certifications that would help the unit advance. Personally, I'd like to get involved in some of the local volunteer organizations. I speak Spanish, and I have an interest in urban outreach so it would be nice to do something formal in that context...health-education or fundraising."

      Anonymous Answer

      "In three to five years I see myself continuing to grow and advance my leadership skills. I know that Emory is dedicated to the career development of its leaders and team members, and I look forward to growing and evolving through the many educational courses offered."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Continual growth is essential, and the interviewer should appreciate you bringing this factor into your answer. Are there any other specific or tangible/measurable goals you would like to see over your first 3-5 years at Emory.

    Here at Emory Healthcare, we emphasize that our employees use resources wisely to help save costs. What are ways that you have shown you can use resources wisely in your work?

      Under their value of integrity, Emory Healthcare pledges that they will steward their resources wisely to help fulfill their mission. For this question, your interviewer will be looking to hear that your personal values on being a great steward of resources aligns with Emory's values so be sure to talk about this subject from a personal point of view. Your examples should include measures that you take daily in your work to ensure that you keep cost and resources at the top of your mind in your work.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "As a nursing director overseeing several units in our hospital, there are several things that I strive for to utilize resources wisely. The first measure is staffing on our units to ensure that we find that right balance of being understaffed vs. overstaffed. Being overstaffed and working overtime hours significantly impacts our labor budget and those extra costs could be pushed on to patients in the future. Our leadership team has implemented many great labor planning policies to ensure that we are running as efficiently as possible. On the side of resources as they relate to supplies on the unit, I helped develop a just in time inventory system for our supplies on our unit that help ensure we don't have items that are expiring or overstocked for long periods of time. These measures have helped control costs on my units very well."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "My work as an IT professional, while mostly in the private business sector, would translate well to the healthcare industry in how I work with resources in a smart and efficient manner. While most folks that I work with often want the newest and best equipment available, I analyze their job and the work that they perform to best suit their work unit with the job that they will be doing. I never hesitate to reuse or rebuild units in a cost efficient manner that will put an employee in the best position to do their job. Are you able to explain how measure like this function in the department here at Emory Healthcare?"

      Anonymous Answer

      "We use a lot of paper because of the number of programs and students that the school has, and the owner shared with us that she was paying 20 cents per copy. I suggested we continue to use the online format to administer tests in class once back on campus and to continue to use the LMS to distribute handouts to the students, which would save literally thousands of printed pages (and money) every week."

      Rachelle's Answer

      What a great suggestion! I am sure that the owner greatly appreciated your initiative and the fact that you cared about financial savings.

    Talk about a time in the workplace that you had to react to changes that you had no control over. What made your reaction to the change go smoothly?

      The healthcare world is continually changing and people who have chosen their career path in healthcare need to be open and ready to take on changes on an almost daily basis. This is no different when working for Emory Healthcare. Changes in laws and regulations and advancements in patient care create the need for healthcare workers to be fluid and your interviewer will be looking for your ability to take on change by giving a direct example. Be sure to point out that you are accepting of change by learning why changes are being made and seeing how they improve processes in patient care. Keep your answer positive.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "Having worked for over 10 years in the industry, I quickly came to the realization that change management is vital in our world. A couple of years ago, working as a nurse in the emergency setting, my employer implemented a new electronic health record system. When the announcement was made, many of my coworkers were extremely upset and disappointed to hear that they would have to learn and be trained on a new system. My approach was to gather as much information as I could about the new system and learn how this would help make both our work lives better and our patient care better. From our first online training, to hands on training and into go-live on our floor, it was easy to see that the new system would make patient charting, record look-up and patient data much more easily accessible and functional. My approach helped put a lot of my team at ease and I was thanked by my department director for keeping such a positive attitude through the change."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "During my clinical rotations in training to be a CT Tech, a wise preceptor told me that the one constant in our field is change. Even in my short time training and looking to find my first job in the field, it was easy to see that changes are rampant in the imaging field. At any point in time during my life, I've been very open to change and I think my mind is so open because I seek to understand why changes are happening and know how they will positively impact my work. Something as simple as a new CT imaging machine being implemented can provide a big shock to employees that need to train and learn something new. When this happened during a clinical rotation, I watched how my preceptor took the extra time to learn the new machine and its nuances and apply them to how she would work with patients moving forward. Seeing how she weighed the positives heavily over the fact that changes were being made and not letting that disrupt me really taught me a great lesson in working in this field."

      Anonymous Answer

      "Healthcare is a very fluid environment and requires the ability to constantly adapt to changing guidelines, regulations, and laws. In my last position, the hospital lost a radiologist due to illness and had a period of several years in which we operated without a full-time replacement. We had locums that came for 1-2 week periods, and during that time, it was a struggle to keep our biopsy services afloat. It was also very stressful for the technologists. I had to make a decision early on that I would need to keep my focus on the fact that this was a very challenging time for our patients, and I needed to do everything that I could to make the transition easier for each one of them. I made the transition easier by staying in constant communication with the telerads who were reading our studies and learned to anticipate their needs which helped to reduce callbacks for additional imaging."

      Rachelle's Answer

      This answer is very well crafted! You make it easy for the interviewer to follow along with the situation, what your responsibilities were, and the action that you took. Are you able to include any measurable results at the end of your response?

    If Emory Healthcare hired you today, what would you accomplish first?

      When you start a new position, it is essential to set a goal on how you will make a positive impact quickly after being hired. Tell the interviewer what your impact goal is, should you be the successful candidate. If you want to make an impact with your answer, refer to the immediate needs of the company such as increasing budgets, or improving patient care, for instance.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "When we were speaking earlier, you mentioned that you were urgently seeking to improve the level of patient care and compassion at this facility. I want to offer my strong skills when it comes to building patient rapport and help to improve the satisfaction of everyone that uses the services of Emory Healthcare. I plan to make a positive impact very quickly."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "This question is a delicate one, and you need to show respect for the onboarding process, then give a moderately ambitious project that you could execute. This concept is often called your 'value proposition' in marketing. "Hire me because I'll do X."

      But remember this is your campaign promise, if hired, it will likely be your first target to hit and depending on the environment, it could make or break you. The best approach is to give a functional analysis of the employers' needs and your skills."

      Anonymous Answer

      "That would depend on what the most pressing need for the department was. Whatever the priority management deems important is what I would target as my immediate goal. I would set targets to meet that goal, showing improvements towards that end at the 30, 60, and 90-day mark."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Taking the stance of 'company needs first' is a brilliant approach to this question. You show a desire to be a team player and fill the gaps in their needs rather than forcing your idea of what should be done.

    When have you shown a willingness to learn a new method or new approach to solving a problem?

      Being flexible, and able to handle change is a skill that all employers desire to see. Discuss with the interviewer your ability to approach a problem using new methods. Give a recent example but make sure to spend more time highlighting the resolution rather than the problem.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "When our facility came under new management last year many new methods and policies came into place. I was able to learn some exciting new approaches to our challenges in patient care and customer management. I quite enjoyed the process."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "It's funny; they say people in medicine are 'lifelong learners'. But on top of that, we're in this digital revolution, and everyone has to learn new software all the time. I'm finally getting old enough to realize that its difficult to be constantly adapting. I think my 75-year-old aunt telling me how to use my iPhone helped me appreciate that it's all about humility. Not WHO is teaching you, but if you are willing to learn. In the medical context, I just took an updated CPR course, and it went from the 2:15 compressions to continuous compressions and I had to adapt to avoid my past way of thinking."

      Anonymous Answer

      "There is a quote that I love that says in times of change learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists. It inspires me to always learn and grow. I am always taking classes and reading articles online to stay abreast of the constant changes in healthcare. Change is inevitable, and we have to be able to adapt to the ever-evolving world of healthcare. As a result, I recently signed up for a leadership certificate program."

      Rachelle's Answer

      This is an excellent quote, and a nice review of change; however, it does not directly answer the question. You can mix this existing reply into your fuller answer but I recommend first answering the question by discussing a time you learned a new approach or approach at work.

    Here at Emory Healthcare, we strive for excellence by being a leader for others to emulate. When have you had to lead by example during your career?

      Giving an example of being a leader by example could go many ways during your healthcare career. Maybe it was a time that you had to educate your fellow colleagues. Maybe it was a time that you had to motivate a person or group that wasn't doing things correctly. Or maybe it was leading by example for a patient. No matter what way you answer this, it will be important that you demonstrate to your interviewer that you have the ability to lead by example and the wherewithal to understand why leading by example was important for the situation.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "A couple of years ago, the organization I worked for was merging with another larger organization and a lot of things would be changing for us from compensation and benefits to the way we conduct ourselves in our work on a daily basis. From the initial announcement, a lot of folks in my small department went into immediate freak out mode, even though we were told nobody would be losing their job. The fear of change was just so strong that my colleagues couldn't stay focused. By me taking the approach of being open minded and looking to learn along every step of the way, it was easy to see that the changes we would be confronted with almost all be positive. And, for some of the benefits that were changing for the worse, a quick weighing analysis of all the positives and negatives really swung toward the positive. In talking about these points with my coworkers, I was able to help put a lot of minds at ease to help make the transition that much smoother when it happened."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "As a healthcare professional that has worked my way into hospital administration, leading by example has been a part of my progression to this point in my career during my whole journey. I think one of the biggest aspects of my leading by example is not micromanaging my teams and rather empowering them in their jobs. By communicating my expectations and goals and then trusting my staff to take it from there, I am leading by example in entrusting them to do their jobs to the best of their abilities."

      Anonymous Answer

      "I always try hard to be an example to others, especially working with student sonographers. I believe in each one teach one and in that spirit, I always model for my students by sharing my own experience in healthcare and being transparent about mistakes that I've made along the way, as well as telling them what steps I have taken to reach certain accomplishments. My mother used to always say, 'let your walk meet your talk'. It's important that your actions line up with your words. I recently shared with my students an experience I had with a difficult patient and how the patient called me a very unflattering word and that although I could have left the room and not served that patient, I maintained my professionalism and gave the patient the highest level of patient care. They told me how impressed they were that I could do that."

      Rachelle's Answer

      It sounds as though you are an excellent example to others in the workplace! To add to your response, do you have a specific story example that you could offer? Something that would take your answer from just 'telling' to a 'show and tell' style response?

If you aren't completely clear on the workplace environment or culture, kindly ask the interviewer to expand on the work environment for you.

      Ryan's Answer #1

      "I can be productive in most work environments, so long as the mentality is positive and teamwork is encouraged. I cannot work in an environment that feels negative or toxic."

      Ryan's Answer #2

      "I prefer to focus on the positive, so if it's okay, I would like to share with you what my ideal work environment looks like. My ideal environment is organized, collaborative, positive, energetic, and encouraging. I love working with like-minded people who set challenging goals for themselves. I thrive when I work for supervisors who encourage curiosity and creativity in problem-solving."
