 Risk Management – Positive Impact on Patient Care, Reputation, and the Bottom-line

In healthcare, effective risk management not only mitigates financial loss, but can also mean the difference between life and death. Historically, risk management had been relegated to a reactive activity with focus on medical malpractice claims and liability. That is far from the case in today’s healthcare environment. The best organizations incorporate thorough risk management strategies and operations from the strategic planning process down to the point of care delivery. This event will outline a growing movement in the industry toward Enterprise Risk Management, discuss current trends challenging healthcare providers, and also cover the financial ROI of strong risk management programs. Because in our industry where human life is on the line, risk management is an activity that must be embraced by all.

The Powerful Nurse Impact on our Healthcare World

Retention efforts are critical to reduce the burden of nurse shortages on healthcare organizations. This program will take a closer look at how local health systems are recruiting and retaining staff to position their organizations for continued success.

Part 1- Applying Lean, Six Sigma and Blue Ocean Thinking to Your Reform Strategy: Developing a culture of continuous improvement is imperative for healthcare organizations to develop strategies and respond quickly to the changes brought on by Health Reform. This session assists participants in establishing a baseline understanding of contemporary methods in performance improvement (PI). A video presentation will be used to share criteria used to choose performance improvement methods, applications of various methods and results of their use.

Part 2 – Rebuilding Public Trust after Clinical and Managerial Errors: In healthcare, trust is a key component of the relationship with the patient and their families. As healthcare organizations are subject to increasing oversight by public and private entities, transparency is becoming an expectation of that relationship with our stakeholders. When unexpected clinical and managerial errors occur, the response of the healthcare entity to the public as well as the internal process improvements are critical next steps. This panel includes leaders from various areas of healthcare from patient safety, clinical operations, pharmaceuticals, and public relations. Hear examples of community relations initiatives, internal process improvements, and internal public relations campaigns, such as responses to patients and families’ questions, press releases, and studying and adjusting safety initiatives.

Diversity and Inclusion

Thursday, August 4, 2016 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT) 
Crowne Plaza Hampton Marina
700 Settlers Landing Road
Hampton, VA 23669

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.
