OVERVIEWThe Philippines’ healthcare sector is one of the country’s economic burdens. With agrowing population needing medical assistance, the government is faced with thedaunting task of giving every Filipino equal access to quality healthcare.While these are pressing problems in the Philippines, the developed countries are alsohaving their own challenges—growing ageing population, rising medical costs, longwaiting line, and poor quality of care are some of the more evident concerns.However, the Philippines’ resources are different. What they lack in human resources,this country is abounding. Conversely, they have the facilities and financial resourcesthat may not be sufficiently available in the Philippines.The world has indeed turned flat. And with the advent of technology, everythingincluding healthcare services is now being outsourced and traded. For several years,the Filipino healthcare professionals have become a growing export providing care tothousands or even millions of people in over 130 countries. But the trend is changing.Patients are now also willing to cross beyond their country’s borders in search for thebest healthcare treatment—a phenomenon called Global Healthcare Travel or Cross-Border Healthcare. The Philippines is recognized as a key emerging destination in Asiafor this growing industry. In fact, some of the Philippine hospitals are seen reaping itseconomic benefits.The Philippines’ healthcare sector is at a trajectory. From being a contributor to publicexpenditure, it has shown potential into becoming an engine of economic growth thatwill help in generating revenues back to the local healthcare system by harnessing thecountry’s best resources – an army of competent and compassionate healthcareprofessionals, state-of-the-art healthcare facilities, spas and wellness centers, traditionalalternative medicine, and retirement havens. But before this potential is realized, itneeds to focus on developing these resources that will strive to achieve excellent qualityof care for patients.How is the Philippines responding to these looming global healthcare challenges? Whatopportunities and benefits, risks and barriers do they present to the healthcareorganizations and workers? How can the country transform a “cost center” like thehealthcare sector into a “revenue center” while equitably providing its economic benefitsto the local community? Is the Philippines adapting to these changes?The 1st Philippine Global Healthcare Forum with the theme “Towards Sustainability andGlobal Competitiveness” will seek to address these issues.

EXECUTIVE WORKSHOP12 November 2011, SaturdayDevelopment Academy of the Philippines Effective Leadership Styles in Healthcare …Creating Futuristic Leaders…Healthcare industry is perhaps the most dynamic and complex industry to manage andmore importantly….LEAD. The key challenges faced by the industry today are: • Growing shortage of qualified manpower • Variance in the quality of manpower • Growing cost of healthcare • Inconsistent quality of care • Ever changing state of information technology • Changes from healthcare reforms adding to the regulatory controls and restrictions • Outdated performance appraisal systems & HR practices • Increased patient expectations • Bureaucratic delays • Resistance to change Add to this for the private players, the need to ensure a positive return on investment despite all the financial constraints. The Global Healthcare scenario in this part of the world is also affected by the external environment like the poor accessibility to services, inadequate or inadequately trained staff needing constant supervision and the overall state of Economy & Governance including regulations, policies on healthcare etc. Operating in this environment is certainly not an easy experience for any Hospital Leader. The growing population needs of healthcare, the changing patterns of disease, the limited resources at command all add up to the complexity and challenges. The job of a Leader (read CEO) in this scenario is definitely stressful. No wonder, one study by the American College of Healthcare Executives, found the turnover rate of Hospital/Healthcare CEOs increase to 18 % last year up from 14% in 2008. Managing in this rapidly changing environment needs Leaders who are not only credentialed in the core business, but also know the process, aligned with clinical governance and have the special skills to embrace this change for improvement. The skills to lead and prioritize, in the face of conflicting priorities, to be a proactive leader in building a shared vision and promote shared values go a long way in building teams which can deliver. There are no easy answers and leaders and industry have to embrace innovation today more than any other time it had to, just to be in business. The proactive attributes of a leader in healthcare industry to inspire, motivate and empower his teams will differentiate him from others. This ability to manage all stakeholders successfully will mark the true leader from others.
In this workshop we will try to analyze the special qualities of an effective leader by deliberating upon the following: • Principles of leadership • Choosing the right leadership style in running a healthcare organization • Leadership vs. Management • Levels of leadership • Delegation • Creating productive teams At the end of the workshop you will be able to lead your team or company to success, motivate your team, respond to the fundamental global challenges and become a more effective leader who can challenge the status quo in your organization and take it to the next level. This workshop will enable you to clarify the distinction between managing and leading, develop your assertive communication skills and help you to imbibe those qualities and skills that will set you apart as a leader. Are you ready for this change? Let’s explore these and many such opportunities and required skills for the change. This workshop will take you through a series of experiences and case presentations, which will prepare you to take these challenges and come up successful. Whether you are part of the government or a private set up, you need to be a good leader if you want to be successful. Wishing you a great experience at the workshop!
