The primary purpose of a crisis command culture is the ability to make good decisions rapidly, and coordinate and communicate activities and information efficiently. As Healthcare Systems and Hospitals adopt this culture as part of their COVID-19 response, they have learned that one top characteristic of an effective incident command structure is assigning staff members to leadership roles based on skillset and experience, and that healthcare quality professionals are uniquely suited to be successful in these roles.
