The New World of Healthcare Innovation

Date: Monday – April 17, 2017
12:00 – 1:00 p.m. CDT
Presenter: Diane Bradley, Regional Clinical Officer


Summary and Objectives

A common denominator for the last 50 years is that hospitals and healthcare organizations can operate successfully with healthy margins, provide value to their respective communities, and do this without many changes. The winds of change are now driving the imperative for innovation in order to survive into the future. Patients expect more from healthcare organizations, and as generations need care, the reality is that innovation, collaboration, exceptional customer care and being cost-effective will be the drivers of great success.

Upon completion of the webinar, participants will understand:

  • The traditional health care model and how the model may not be effective for the future.
  • The concept of health care innovation.
  • Two innovative models of care delivery that have been successfully implemented.
