The MN Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives and the Center for Health & Medical Affairs at the University of St. Thomas’ Opus College of Business present:

Execution for High Performance
Health Care

The ability to execute effectively is a challenge for most organizations, but executing strategies in today’s health care environment is particularly difficult.  Moving clinical innovations from trials to widespread application still takes many years.  Implementing electronic health records is still painful and frequently ineffective.  New payment systems that emphasize quality and chronic disease management are being implemented by payers before providers can effectively respond.

In this presentation, Dan McLaughlin, director of the Center for Health and Medical Affairs, will describe an integrated system of execution to successfully meet these challenges.  Strategy creation, business tools and an organization’s people are all key aspects of execution, and Dan will thoroughly explain the important elements of each.  This new system for execution is based on leading examples from the business world, research findings and the best practices of some of the leading health systems in the United States.
