Physician Engagement As a Catalyst for Clinical and Financial Improvement

6:00pm - 7:00pm Thursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Palazzo G

Description

Physicians are facing mounting pressure to improve quality of care, lower costs and drive positive outcomes. This coupled with the burden of ever-changing government regulation and quality programs has sparked a physician burnout of epidemic proportions. Research shows 71% of physicians feel disengaged, and those disengaged are more likely to leave, costing a medical group an average of $250,000 per departure. This session brings together two of the industry’s most charismatic and provocative innovators for a hard-hitting discussion on the consequences of failing to engage the physician workforce and how to restructure current models and processes of care management to empower physicians to do what they do best—deliver quality care.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain the concept of physician capability and the role it plays in physician engagement
  • Identify the current biases of medical education and the shift that needs to be made in order to create capable physicians of tomorrow
  • Discuss the “interactive action” model and its implications for healthcare organizations
  • Distinguish how to effectively deploy technology that better matches provider needs, eliminates work and engages rather than hinders physicians
  • Recognize the importance of “followership,” teamwork and collaboration as integral parts of effective leadership
