Are you living out your organizational mission statement?
Mission statements matter – they are the north stars that guide organizations. They create a compelling “mission” to go after. We are not talking about boring, unauthentic mission statements. We are talking about ones that create a deep fire, a rallying cry to get up every morning and make a difference. Steve Jobs wanted to make a “ding in the universe,” Starbucks wants to “…inspire and nurture the human spirit,” Twitter wants to “…give everyone the power to create and share ideas.”
At MatrixCare our mission statement is, “Leveraging technology to improve the lives for America’s seniors and those who care for them.” As much as we are a technology company with the very best electronic health record platform and the tools that enable it—whether it be world class analytics, a single unified personal health record, mobile point of care and smart clinical decision systems—all of these exist to improve the lives of the seniors who live in facilities that are powered by MatrixCare. We are in the people business. Better lives – healthy living.
Stories such as Evelyn’s in the video below inspire us tremendously. Living in a senior living facility at 98, showing resilience, courage, hope, and grit to not only be strong for herself but for her friend while overcoming challenges. At MatrixCare, we aspire to live our lives by our mission statement, so that we may see many more people like Evelyn live long and healthy lives. MatrixCare-powered, long-term post-acute care providers provide the best software and solutions to enable our nation’s caregivers to do just that.
