Achieving Speed, Spread, Scalability and Sustainability for Health Systems -- A C-Suite Action Planning Forum
 
Value-based reform, ACO and bundled payment initiatives, and mandates to collaborate with physicians have elevated the need for innovative health system design.  Now more than ever, unique and strategic collaborative partnerships, leadership development and aggressive margin improvement are crucial for health system success.  This will be an action-planning forum for C-suite leaders to explore solutions to emerging issues brought about by a changing healthcare environment.
 
Objectives:
  • Discover nine high-leverage margin improvement focus areas and over 40 specific projects found among top-performing healthcare organizations through national survey.
  • Compare effective standardization approaches, including the pros and cons of centralization vs. decentralization as practiced by leading not-for-profit and for-profit health systems.
  • Identify approaches for developing leaders across the organization that will optimize total change capacity by getting “everyone in the game” to accelerate margin improvement, patient experience, and other critical strategies.
