AGENDA

2018 Mid-Atlantic Healthcare Innovative Forum

The Governing Board is pleased to welcome the following leading-edge practitioners, business leaders, and industry partners to provide their expertise at this year’s Forum. Please check back for updates as we finalize the agenda

BREAKOUT SESSIONS

Building a Patient-Centric Enterprise

The increasing focus today on patient outcome is forcing...

The increasing focus today on patient outcomes is forcing healthcare systems administrators to recognize the fact that outcomes are a component of the entire system of patient touchpoints, rather than just time with their physician, or any other singular event. The best practices today take a “whole solution” view toward being patient-centric and measure all patient outcomes and touchpoints along the continuum of care to determine if actual results are meeting expectations or not. This breakout session will detail how design thinking and the use human factors and human-centered design principles are being used to build and thrive in a patient-centric enterprise.

Advancing the Quality of Patient Care with Improved Infection Control

Although progress has been made over the years...

Although progress has been made over the years, the healthcare-associated infections today remain unacceptable. All hospitals use HAI plans to reduce CLABSI, CAUTI, MRSA bacteremia, SSI, and other infections. This breakout session will discuss emerging trends, proven practices, and new methods aimed at getting HAIs to zero.

Managing Opioid Abuse for Patient Safety and Community Wellbeing

The opioid crisis has become what we have known to be true...

The opioid crisis has become what we have known to be true for a long time; a national emergency. While pain management is vital for human livelihood – with nearly 100 deaths every day from opioids – we can and need to do better for our patients and communities. This panel will detail critical decision points in opioid therapy, comprehensive solutions to mitigate abuse and successful case studies of non-opioid pain management.

EXECUTIVE BOARDROOM SESSIONS

Understanding Population Health to Better Manage Population Health

Differing definitions, descriptions and determinants continue to emerge...

Differing definitions, descriptions, and determinants continue to emerge when it comes to population health. While some argue it is a concept of health, others see it as a field of study, and yet others have said it is inclusive of health outcomes, patterns of health determinants, and policies and interventions relative to a group of individuals. This Boardroom discussion will debate and differentiate public health, health promotion, and social epidemiology in order to understand population health and better manage it.

One of the most pressing issues of our day is leveraging technology to deliver healthcare (more) virtually. Current innovations and applications focus on providing self-help educational and prevention tools, conducting virtual checkups and diagnosis, and remote monitoring of treatment and disease management. This boardroom will spotlight new and emerging technologies associated with virtual healthcare and telehealth while detailing best practices, current challenges, and what’s next.

Navigating Continual Change While Facing the Challenges of Engagement

As we all navigate the evolving landscape of healthcare...

As we all navigate the evolving landscape of healthcare, the imperative of engagement becomes increasingly important. The challenge is more paradox than problem; therefore there is no single solution, no one-size-fits-all approach, or fix from a mythical silver bullet. On the premise that our success will be found from engagement with colleagues, this interactive session will engage all participants to share challenges as well as their unique solutions that lead to both increased engagement and the realization of positive (and sustained) change.

Building a Health System Ambulatory Care Platform on the Foundation of Quality, Patient Safety, and Continuous Performance Improvement

Supporting any hospital system's mission to. improve the health and..

Supporting any hospital system’s mission to improve the health and well-being of our communities are those communities’ comprehensive, longitudinal and holistic outpatient services spanning the continuum of care. With hospital system reimbursement shifting towards improved safety, quality and lower health care costs for populations – not just individuals – their implementation of care in the ambulatory environment must rapidly evolve to meet regulatory and payment requirements.  The practice transformation required of ambulatory medicine is increasingly complex and requires health system-level resources to achieve success.  In this way, hospital systems and their ambulatory partners are increasingly dependent on each other for success.
