Seismic shifts in healthcare organization structures, healthcare information technology and care delivery have in some cases enabled transformation and in others provoked disruption. As healthcare systems and professionals adopted the goals of the Triple Aim -  Higher Quality, Lower Cost, Better Health – we’ve seen the advance of clinical data analytics, EHR implementation, population health initiatives, mobile solutions and patient experience initiatives. Innovation now leads the planning process of most healthcare organizations. But is all this change truly improving health? There are new voices urging us to raise our sights to focus on the true prize in all this change: improved health for all. We’re all being challenged to see the work of healthcare, and our responsibilities as leaders, in new ways. Are we in the process of moving from a medical model of care to a social model of care? Can we identify the ways that the current model for delivering care isn’t contributing to improving health and come up with solutions? How can we find new ways to question the status quo by looking at how healthcare value is measured and at the true impact of such factors as gender and diversity, research, social determinants of care, implicit bias and compassionate care on health? Can we achieve the goal of Better Health for everyone?

Plan to join us for a day of thought provoking insights on the ways our speakers are encouraging a new set of approaches, partnerships and intervention to make better health a reality today.
