And it can be said that thehealthcare industry is undergoing one of the biggest changes in its recent history. We are allaware that the healthcare reform has been a catalyst that has forced hospitals to lookinternally and reassess business practices, standards, activities and processes in order tocomply with new regulations and requirements. This is not easy task for an industry that isknown for it’s legacy systems.Undoubtedly the notable change is the significant shift from volume to value, from quantityto quality, where hospitals are rewarded for offering better care. This change has causedhospitals to start re-strategizing and in some instances conducting an overhaul of theirbusiness processes to find ways to improve their quality of service.We conducted research with hospitals from across the country to try and establish some ofthe key challenges that they were facing in their improvement journey. The PerformanceExcellence for Healthcare Forum will start to unpack some of these challenges and offeractionable solutions that hospitals can deploy today in order to achieve their excellence goals.At the Healthcare Forum our exceptional speaker panel will help you:• Learn the key principles for improving service quality and improve the patient experience• Discover how to successfully engage physicians to support change initiatives and becomeleaders for improvement• Visualize the patient flow and start to weed out the non-value add steps and processes forimmediate cost savings• Get the tools to promote a culture of continuous learning and developmentAnd more!Don’t miss out!

The notion of patient experience has beengaining momentum for years, and has been accelerated thanks in part to the Affordable Care Act and a push to tie payments increasingly to valueand quality of care. Hospitals are in the process of revamping and developing their patient experience protocols as Medicare becomes more relatedto value-based payments.

An expansion of the “value-based purchasing”model, this law mandates that ratings and reimbursements to physiciansand hospitals be increasingly tied to measured quality of care. There is a lotof uncertainty and fear as hospitals try to navigate through the change,which also means that a hospitals quality improvement program must befluid in response to ever changing requirements. A number of opportunitiesand challenges arise from this program. This session will aim to separatemisconceptions from fact. Learn how you can use the program to yourhospital’s advantage.11.15 How to Effectively Drum up Leadership Support andGet the Right Buy-In for Quality ImprovementInitiativesQuality improvement is not a new notion for hospitals. Hospitals have hadquality improvement departments and employed related staff for manyyears. Yet hospitals have continued to fall short in the quality of their servicedelivery and operational activities.What is new, however, is the monitoring and public reporting of qualityinformation and the escalating pressure on hospitals to participate.Improved performance is depended on leadership support and more so,getting the buy-in from the physicians, motivating them to own andbecome champions for the change initiatives. This is not an easy task. Thissession will take you through a step by step process of easy win strategies toinspire your organization to dispel fear and embrace change.• Visualizing change• Aligning initiatives with organizational strategic objectives• Identifying some quick wins – things that can be implemented within aweek and yield results• Assigning metrics to change champions to create process ownershipShravani DattaOperational Excellence LeaderLoyola University Medical Center12.45 Networking Session Refreshments12.15 PANEL DISCUSSION: Project Prioritization – KeyConsiderations When Determining the Starting PointOf The Excellence JourneyHow can priorities best be set? How can a hospital determine in which areasto invest limited resources? How can it identify the quality and serviceelements which, if addressed effectively by improvement innovation efforts,will lead to the greatest gains in customer satisfaction and loyalty andfinancial performance, and overall organizational effectiveness?Undertaking the improvement journey is a big decision for any organization,but the challenging task is determining exactly where to begin and whatprocess to start improving to make the biggest impact. In this discussion,our panellists will discuss some of the tools, techniques and keyconsiderations you need to take into account to prioritize correctly.• Adopting the systematic approach to prioritization• Determining the key deliverable of each project• Developing metrics for quantifying project valueSteven LeuschelCultural Change, Lean Implementation Operational Excellence CoachIndiana Regional Medical CenterDoug MitchellAssociate Vice PresidentIASIS Healthcare1.00 Networking Lunch Break2.00 Constructing Disease Management Protocols to PredictReadmission and Manage CostA recent report by the National Priorities Partners indicates that preventablereadmissions account for an estimated $25 billion in wasteful spending inthe U.S. healthcare system.

A large part of reducing costs revolves around keepingpopulations healthier—and the key to accomplishing this goal is by managingchronic disease with proactive interventions.• How to structure clinical practice guidelines and identify data needed for adisease management program• How to use the clinical documentation and reporting to evaluate interventionsand patient outliers.• Uncover utilization issues through data extracted from the HERDoug Mitchell Jay SimmonsAssociate Vice President Director, Physician information servicesIASIS Healthcare IASIS Healthcare2.30 CASE STUDY: Taking a Multi-Faceted Approach to TheDesign, Development And Preparation For PilotingPhysician Leadership Development ProgramThe Leadership Development Office at Florida Hospital helps leaders reach theirfull potential.

Intodays healthcare delivery system and value based purchasing environment, it ismore important than ever that hospitalists are a part of the solution rather than apart of the problem. Whether it is throughput, length of stay, patient satisfaction,core measures, or readmissions, hospitalists can make or break the performancedashboard for the hospital. This presentation will offer pragmatic ideas forachieving performance excellence.• As a hospital, how do you nurture a culture of fact-based problem solvingrather than finger-pointing?• Is employing physicians really a sustainable solution• What are the Dos and Donts for tapping into the knowledge, hands-onexperience, and recommendations that hospitalists can bring to the table?Abhay PadgaonkarPresidentInnovative Solutions Consulting, LLC4.30 Promoting A Culture of Continuous Learning - Establish ASuccessful Center Of Excellence for Continuous DevelopmentTo succeed in an increasingly complex and costly healthcare system, hospitalsneed to continuously learn and apply new knowledge to challenges, according toa report by the Institute of Medicine Committee on the Learning Health CareSystem in America.

Introducing and maintaining a scorecard in a Nursingenvironment can be challenging when balancing the demands ofpatient care – particularly when those patients are children.However, it can be extremely rewarding when the scorecard meetsits purpose in guiding Nursing leaders in the delivery of quality andsafe patient care. In this session, attendees will walk through thejourney of the Children’s Hospital’s first Nursing Scorecard -- from itsinception to its current state of automation. Stops along the waywill include:• Educating Nurses on the Scorecard process• Harnessing the data• Choosing the right tool• Improving Nursing engagement at every levelPatricia BlackMBA, Outcome Manager, Patient Care ServicesThe Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia11.45 Networking Session Refreshments12.15 CASE STUDY: LTC Trend Tracker – TrackingPerformance In An Acute SettingThe relationship between acute and post-acute care is changing withthe implementation of accountable care organizations and bundlingpilots. Hospitals are being pressured to discharge patients earlier.Hospital readmissions within 30 days are being measured. The post-acute care providers nursing facilities, home health care, and outpatientcenters are receiving sicker patients from the hospital and the directlyfrom the community. As nursing facilities care for these higher carepatients while facing reduced reimbursement and increased demand forquality, it was determined that a quality and financial improvement toolwould assist those facilities. Come hear about this tool that is beingutilized by more than 5,000 nursing facilities in the United States, alongwith other performance measurement that is made by nursing facilities.William W.
