M&A: Navigating the High-Stakes Expectations and Challenges

2:30pm - 3:30pm Wednesday, March 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W307A

Description

M&A continues at an accelerated pace, and for most health systems, this is the biggest bet they will make. Paying attention to IT and technology enablement early-on can mean the difference between partnership success and failure. IT — as the “central nervous systems” of the current and future healthcare organizations — should be considered a “force multiplier” which can accelerate and enable the strategic initiatives which further the goals of the partnership. For CIOs, delivering on these high-stakes expectations is no easy task. Join this session to hear one organization’s journey and the practices that leading health systems are using to ensure technology enables the goals of the partnership and avoid common pitfalls.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the critical success factors for IT to enable the goals of an M&A integration and avoid common pitfalls – especially in a fast-moving M&A environment
  • Identify three examples of successful approaches of pre/post-merger integration taken at leading health systems
  • Explain how to establish an Enterprise IMO and effective intersection points with the IT PMO
  • Apply the tips and approaches used by the panelists in the M&A journey in one’s own organization
