MILI-Healthcare Delivery Innovations: Optimizing Cost and Quality
Medical Industry Leadership Institute 6992
The healthcare industry, especially the delivery system, is undergoing immense changes due to internal shifts and external forces both economic and legislative. In order to improve both the delivery of care and the economics of this industry, there is a great need to learn from other industries and apply systems and processes that have been tried and tested in other sectors.
Leaders in the healthcare industry, many of whom will emerge from business schools, will need to understand the various components and stakeholders in this very complex industry and to make sense of the many moving parts in order to succeed and lead transformation. This understanding is necessary to analyze how the components along the care continuum fit together currently and, more importantly, to explore how they can be reconfigured and re-engineered to create value for the population. Guest faculty will include well respected leaders from various settings within the healthcare delivery system.
- Gain an understanding of the unique value propositions of various sites and stakeholders of healthcare delivery from home to hospital and back to the community. Care settings that will be explored include: self-care via online web based applications; clinics: primary care, retail, and specialty; hospitals: community, tertiary, and specialty; post-acute institutional venues: inpatient rehab units (IRF), transitional care units (TCU), skilled nursing facilities (SNF); \ community based post-acute settings: home care, other community based services e.g. parish, and block nurses.
- Share additional stakeholder perspectives, including: payers, commercial, Medicare, and Medicaid; employers: large and small; community organizations.
- Build an understanding of the historical structure.
Any current or future healthcare industry leaders who seek a deeper understanding of the current state of the industry so-as-to make sense of the many moving parts in order lead transformation would benefit from this course.
