Hospital Council of East Central Michigan Trustee Forum

April 17, 2017

Shubhang Dave from The Advisory Board Company presented: The National Prescription for Employee and Physician Engagement: Key Insights and Recommendations for Empowering the Workforce.

Synopsis: The health care industry is bracing for yet another period of uncertainty, and building an engaged workforce that is ready to rise to the challenge has arguably never been more important. This session offered hospital leaders a national perspective on trends in staff and physician engagement, including powerful data the attendees needed to make a business case for investing in engagement and an exploration of key demographic groups whose engagement their strategy should address. The session armed attendees with best practices demonstrated by organizations that are achieving high levels of engagement in spite of a rapid pace of change.

 
8th Annual 'Communities Achieving Excellence and Accountability' Conference at SVSU

January 27, 2017 

Robert Fortini, PNPRay King, MD

Speakers included Robert Fortini, PNP, and Ray King, MD. Fortini is the Chief Clinical Officer for Bon Secours Medical Group and King is Senior Vice President, Medical Affairs & Chief Medical Officer, of Allegiance Health. Population Health Management is a pressing topic within the healthcare arena.

The 2017 conference shared how this is achieved through innovative and transformative actions, providing vision to enhance system performance, improve care coordination, and reduce costs. This can all be accomplished by building on the collective impact model, catalyzed by national and regional thought leaders. Speakers provided conceptual frameworks and case examples related to their experiences in accountable systems of care and patient/person-centered medical homes, enabling participants to continue examining and enhancing their efforts toward improving quality and patient care experiences in the region.

The event was cosponsored by Saginaw Valley State University, Hospital Council of East Central Michigan, Mid-Central Area Health Education Center and Michigan Health Improvement Alliance.
