Living the Operating Principles is How We Do Our Work

  • I put the patient first, always. I act as if the patient is in the room in all of my decisions and actions. If I have to weigh doing what’s best for the patient vs. the customer, I will do what’s best for the patient.  
  • I am tenacious in meeting customer needs. I co-create solutions that help serve patients better. I focus externally and understand customer experiences. I ask for feedback and act on it.
  • I act on behalf of the whole company, not just my team. I break down silos. I consider the impact of my decisions and actions on the enterprise. I see the bigger picture, make connections and share ideas that may help others. I never say it’s not my job.
  • I am inclusive. I create an environment of belonging where everyone can be themselves while contributing fully to the organization’s success. I intentionally seek and value diversity. I bring my authentic self to work and help others to do the same.  
  • I build a culture of trust. I believe my colleagues are competent and credible. I am open about what I don’t know and I value the expertise of others. I share information broadly. I spark robust debate on the topics that matter. I speak my mind and listen intently. I commit to the decisions of others.  
  • I grow my capabilities to increase my impact. I own my development and I help others develop. My career will thrive as I embrace opportunities to gain skills and perspectives to reach my full potential. I constantly adapt and learn.
  • I have a bias for action. Speed matters and I don’t let perfectionism or conservatism get in my way. I assemble the smallest team possible to get the job done. I ask “how might we?” I experiment, learn and iterate to make progress every day. I take the simplest approach.  
  • I am accountable. I deliver high impact results. I set clear expectations for myself and I am transparent with the work I am doing. I follow through on my commitments. I hold myself and others to a high standard.
