Quarterly Lecture Series

Leadership Tools that Work in Times of Rapid Change

The American health care environment is undergoing a period of rapid change.  Dr. Kent Bottles, the president of the Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement, will discuss three of the issues driving this change: President Obama's tying health care reform to the global economic crisis, Health 2.0 technologies and Clay Christensen's analysis of how health care delivery will be disrupted by new innovations.  All health care leaders need to know how to interpret and to respond to these three transformational developments.
