Transformational Care: Leading Change in Value, Quality, and Outcomes
Ted James, MD, Medical Director and Educator, Harvard Health System
Bringing about transformational change in patient care is not a simple task; however, it is a requirement for healthcare organizations striving to move forward and succeed in a value-driven healthcare system. Establishing a culture of clinical innovation and transformational leadership is a necessary step to achieve sustained, reliable, system-wide improvements in patient care. This presentation will review proven models and techniques to support healthcare organizations in their efforts to pursue fundamental system redesign and achieve dramatic improvements in clinical quality. Using best practices of Evidence-Based Leadership (EBL), participants will gain practical insight into their own leadership capacity. Inspired and effective clinical leaders bring about changes that result in improved patient outcomes, greater professional satisfaction, and enhanced performance of healthcare organizations.
2:15 p.m. Tech Innovation & Disruption in The Healthcare Ecosystem
Indu Subaiya, Healthcare Visionary and Co-Founder, Healthcare 2.0
The keynote will cover key trends in digital health technology today as we move toward whole person care and increased care coordination, while addressing the social drivers of health. Dr. Subaiya will review opportunities in technology to transform and advance equitable health in an environment when many health systems face provider shortages, sicker patient populations, and challenges with the digital divide. Dr. Subaiya will also provide examples of innovative solutions and services for both urban and rural environments as well as best practices for delivering tech-enabled care in culturally-relevant contexts. The presentation will cover new care models, effective uses of data aggregation, and tracking as well as how digital health companies are helping health systems build and strengthen partnerships with community-based organizations to improve access and extend that "last mile" of care.
