8:30 am Registration 9:15 am “Closing the Gap in Patient Care Teams” (1.5 F2F ACHE credits pending) In the quest to improve healthcare, increasing attention is being paid to gaining control over quality by making care safe, effective, timely and centered on patient needs. The complexity of healthcare delivery can benefit from the care team having access to real-time insights into patient safety threats/ risks to prevent adverse events before they occur. Incorporating predictive risk management technology into the care plan can be an effective means for preventing harm. Hospital leadership must create an environment that invites and enables care teams to succeed through the application of High Reliability Organization (HRO) principles. 10:45 am Break 11:00 am “Behavioral Healthcare: Approaches to Increase Value for the Organization and Meet Community Needs” (1.5 F2F ACHE credits pending) According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness, approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experience mental illness in a given year. Nearly half (45 percent) of those with any mental disorder also meet criteria related to having a physical illness or substance abuse. Physical health and mental health issues occur together. Being able to receive treatment for both conditions through an integrated behavioral health and primary care setting can be especially helpful since how we live our lives (behave) and our physical and mental health all interact with each other in complex ways. As hospitals and healthcare systems begin to make the movement away from volume toward value-based care healthcare, executives need to implement best practices to align and coordinate high quality care, reduce utilization in the emergency room, address workforce composition, control costs and meet the ethnic and racial disparities of the community. 12:30 pm Lunch and Annual Meeting 1:30 pm “Team Building - Maximize Individual Strengths, Create Stronger Collaborative Teams” Presentation (1.0 Qualified Education ACHE credits) Speaker: Mea Austin, Motivational Speaker and Life Coach, Culture Index Executive Advisor Discover how to capitalize on your individual strengths to increase the ability of your team/group to communicate and collaborate.
