Course Overview

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.

 

The course faculty includes co-course directors John Nelson, MD, MHM and Leslie Flores, MHA, SFHM as well as Rachel Cyrus, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Northwestern University and Andrew White, MD Associate Professor Medicine and Director of Hospital Medicine Service at University of Washington. These knowledgeable and entertaining speakers represent decades of experience in clinical practice, leadership of HMGs, and consultative work with hundreds of HMGs throughout the country, but also bring a fresh perspective to the topics under discussion.  The agenda includes ample time for interaction with the faculty and fellow attendees, and each session will conclude with participants developing a brief action plan to implement upon returning to their practices.

 

Learning Objectives

  • 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.
