2020 What Have You Done for Me Lately? Practice Management Tools for Maximizing and Demonstrating Value
As U.S. hospitals face increasing financial pressures and hospital medicine groups continue to expand their footprint, virtually every HMG in the country is being challenged to improve – and demonstrate – the value it is delivering to the organization(s) supporting it. At the same time, many of the traditional drivers of hospital medicine value are being overtaken by new priorities and HMGs are finding they need to look both internally as well as externally for levers to enhance their value. Join us for this all-new pre-course, led by expert faculty who will address how we define and demonstrate value and offer practical suggestions on innovative strategies HMGs can use to improve the value they deliver.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be better able to:
- Develop a working definition of value for your HMG and be able to convey it effectively to your stakeholders.
- Implement adjustments to HMG operations and clinical activities to improve group performance in areas your hospital cares about, such as clinical quality, cost of care, team-based care models, and patient experience.
- Modify HMG operations and clinical activities to improve group culture, reduce the risk of hospitalist burnout and turnover, and improve HMG financial performance.
- Develop an effective hospitalist performance dashboard and use it in concert with other strategies to improve how HMG value is assessed, demonstrated, and communicated throughout your organization.
