Surfing the Healthcare Tsunami: Bring Your Best Board

 Session Overview

The "No Outcome-No Income Tsunami" is here. A crisis of harm and waste is upon us. Enormous financial forces are being coupled with safety. CEOs, officers, quality leaders, and especially hospital trustees must play new roles to survive and thrive. Hear trustees and quality leaders discuss a practical approach to addressing the tough issues such as radiology safety; how to deal with a medical accident; and dealing with value-based purchasing. The tectonic shift from a provider-centered, volume-driven payment system to a patient-centered, value-driven payment system has caused a powerful wave. Surfers will leverage the power of the wave and make things happen; swimmers will capsize and watch what happens; and the sinkers will perish and wonder what happened. Be a surfer and bring your best board!

We will be highlighting TMIT's new SpeakerLink.org website.
