Strategically Rethinking HR to Engage Patients and Adapt to the Rapidly Changing Healthcare Landscape


“We have the opportunity to build a future where hospitals are as much associated with health as they are with sickness, more closely aligned in the minds of our patients with the joy of living than the fear of dying” (Rick Pollack, American Hospital Association President & CEO).  The U.S. Healthcare Industry is dynamic, complex and evolving.  It is gradually transitioning away from a traditional fee-for-service model to one that incorporates value into the payment equation with the objectives of managing populations of health and creating better patient outcomes in a cost efficient manner.  In addition, the forces of chronic care management and consumerism are pushing structural shifts in healthcare, redefining how hospitals interact with patients and elevating the importance of employees to enable more coordinated patient care and encourage a higher degree of patient engagement.

Typically viewed as people motivators, people developers and culture architects, with high levels of emotional intelligence, HR Leaders are uniquely positioned to meet these challenges, which increasingly will rely on the people side of healthcare to ensure success.  The highly qualified speaker faculty will provide some perspectives and insights as well as strategies and tactics for positioning the HR function to develop the best talent available and to sustain a workforce that delivers on the healthcare organization’s value proposition.

The 2018 Healthcare HR Management Institute has been designed by Healthcare HR Leaders for Healthcare HR Leaders.  The agenda recognizes the importance of keeping abreast of current strategies and developments in a highly regulated and rapidly evolving environment and over the course of two and a half days, you will accomplish a great deal, digging into a range of highly relevant and timely topics, and gleaning actual pragmatic tips and best practices from your peers.
