  1. 1. HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL DEPARTMENT OF CONTINUING EDUCATION ACCOUNTABILITY LEADERSHIP FOR THE HEALTH CARE TEAM Offered by The Department of Psychiatry, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center In Association with The Levinson Institute October 28 - November 2, 2012 at Doubletree Bedford Glen Hotel Bedford, Massachusetts Course Director and Creator Gerald A. Kraines, MDFor 28 years, Leadership for Physician Executives has shown physician executives from around the world how to lead effectively. NowAccountability Leadership for the Health Care Team will guide the entire health-care team to deliver on its strategic mission—accountably!The health-care environment is becoming increasingly convoluted, confusing, and politically contentious, just as standards for quality and afford-able health care are being pulled apart (and attempted to be put together) from all sides. The traditional roles of physician-executives, otherhealth-care executives, and business executives in the health-care field are increasingly blurred. Physician leaders do not always have the finalsay in decisions affecting clinical care. Non-physician health-care leaders often dictate clinical policy to physicians. Business managers nowmust understand how their budget decisions can have a profound impact on the physician-patient relationship. Simultaneously, multiple forces—changing economics, competition, public policy, regulation, and consumer dissatisfaction—are challenging the status quo.Accountability Leadership for the Health Care Team addresses all these issues and practice gaps. This intensive seminar offers sound con-cepts and proven applications that bring clear thinking to the management of health-care delivery systems. The five-day program investigates thevarious types of accountabilities and authorities found in roles throughout clinical institutions; it then presents straightforward leadership practicesto meet those accountabilities. The seminar’s lectures explore—in-depth—effective leadership of individuals, teams, cross-functional processes,and whole organizations.Consultant-led small-group sessions complement the lectures and provide lively forums to apply the seminar’s principles to focused cases thatparticipants present from their own organizations. In fact, the value of Accountability Leadership for the Health Care Team is enhanced expo-nentially when several colleagues from the same organization or hospital attend together and apply the seminar’s concepts and tools to commonproblems and dilemmas.The faculty for Accountability Leadership for the Health Care Team is made up of physician executives and other health-care executives withsignificant leadership and consulting experience in the health-care field, as well as in other industries. Accountability Leadership for the HealthCare Team is targeted to participants from all medical disciplines: medicine, nursing, social work, and psychology, as well as all health-carebusiness disciplines: general management, finance, marketing, and information technology.In Accountability Leadership for the Health Care Team, participants from different disciplines learn to understand and master the tasks ofworking effectively together to deliver on their hospital or organization’s overall goals. The seminar’s lectures, large-group discussions, small-group discussions, and one-on-one coaching sessions provide science-based approaches to aligning structures and processes with strategy, align-ing people with work, and developing people to their full potential.Specifically, participants learn how to: • Master the tasks of working effectively together to deliver on their organization’s overall goals; • Set context and encourage employee productivity and team-working to ensure the highest probability of success; • Effectively manage in different types of health-care systems (with varied accountabilities and authorities); • Effectively manage team-working practices in each type of health-care organization; • Achieve consensus in complex work environments with multiple, competing demands and requirements; • Enhance employee effectiveness through a systematic approach to coaching and mentoring; • Maximize the productivity of multi-level, cross-functional managerial units; and • Translate strategy into reality—and successfully implement it within an accountability framework.Accountability Leadership for the Health Care Team can be particularly valuable in departments, divisions, and group practices undergoingsignificant organizational change. The program can positively influence cultural and management transitions, help upgrade the quality of leader-ship and managerial practices, and provide a venue for the development of action plans. 45.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
