Seeing 2021: Experimentation, Innovation, Opportunity
Craig Deao, MHA, Managing Director, Speaker, Author, Huron Group
Amidst the disruption and suffering caused by the pandemic, health care organizations also find themselves in a rare moment of grand experimentation. Fueled by sweeping changes to regulation, reimbursement and patient preferences, there has been an unprecedented wave of innovation, from the rise of telehealth to the flexibility of working from home. But which of these positive changes will sustain, and which will fade away? Leaders have more control than they often think. This session shares a perspective on where to look for innovation, how to nurture the positive changes so they endure, and practical advice for ensuring you continue to build trusting relationships with your employees and communities. During the second part of this session we will use technology to have small group discussions on engagement focusing on leadership and frontline workers.
