Panel #1: Bending the Execution Curve: Implementing Successful Organizational Change

Today’s workplace calls for the development of high-performance work teams to manage dynamic healthcare environments. The panelists will present strategies to design and implement collaborative work systems. 


Panel #2: Changing Business Strategies and Aligning Executive Compensation

In today’s healthcare environment, the Society of Hospitalist Medicine (SHM) estimates that there are approximately 2,800 hospitalist groups providing services in U.S. hospitals. Even with hospitalist medicine being the fastest growing medical specialty, there is a shortage of hospitalists in the marketplace as hospitals across the country have either implemented, or are currently in the process of implementing hospitalists programs, to address compliance, quality and operations.

The need for regulatory & clinical compliance with federal and state agencies (e.g. CMS, QIO’s, etc.), accrediting agencies (e.g. JCAHO) and commercial payers, coupled with current physician practice patterns, collectively support the strong value proposition that Hospitalists bring to today’s hospitals and their significance as Change Agents for today’s hospital leadership team.

This presentation will address hospitalist recruitment best practices, successful hospitalist implementation plans, the pros and cons of various hospitalist models, the clinical and operational benefits typically derived from hospitalist programs, and identifying appropriate methods and metrics to measure clinical and operational outcomes, risk reduction, patient satisfaction and ROI.

Panel #3: Disruptive Innovation

The communities for which healthcare organizations operate are rapidly diversifying. Not only do they provide care for a diverse community of patients and families, but their workforce is also growing more diverse. This diversity is exhibited in a number of ways, including nationality, race, religion, language, age, sexual orientation and physical ability.

The business implications and imperatives healthcare organizations face concerning diversity and inclusion are immense. Diverse communities will demand different care needs, improved quality, new or modified operational processes and services, strategic planning for a diverse patient demographic and continuum of care.

It is incumbent on healthcare organizations and their leaders to both understand and embrace the needs of diverse populations. Their ability to respond to the needs and preferences of a broader customer base will be critical to their financial and operational survival.


Panel #4: Equity of Care 

Quality of care should not vary on the basis of the patients’ socioeconomic, ethnic, gender, or geographic background. It is known however, that there is a healthcare divide in the U.S. especially in vulnerable populations including: those lacking health insurance, low- income families, racial and ethnic minorities, and LGBT populations. The Affordable Care Act aims to address access and equity of care issues by expanding health insurance coverage. The improvement in access to care will change the way healthcare is delivered and financed.

To embrace diversity is a core principle of the healthcare management profession and is also an ethical and business imperative. Healthcare organizations must ensure their staff is educated on disparities in order to appropriately address the needs of patients from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds to provide equitable high-quality care to all. It has been shown that patient-centered care improves clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction while reducing medical errors and costs. Eliminating healthcare disparities provides a strategic component to ensure organizational excellence and long-term financial viability.
