A Temporary Placement with Permanent Results: How to Gain Lasting Value Using an Interim Manager

Wednesday, October 6, 2021
12 PM ET

Amid increasing healthcare competition and continued uncertainty about the financial and regulatory future, hospital leaders should be focused on ways to ensure program viability in both the short and long term. And, what poses the largest risk to the continued growth of a specialty service line? A few varying scenarios come to mind, but industry-wide, the most common issue that brings a near-certain negative impact is the lack of leadership in key clinical areas. In fact, in the current Covid era of staffing shortages, leadership gaps, and general hospital overwhelm, a key vacancy will only serve to further hinder growth in what is already a trend of stagnation.

Attendees of this session will learn how to turn this potentially intimidating situation into an opportunity to work past an existing lack of momentum and reshape future strategy with a talented interim professional.  What is often perceived as a difficult predicament is really an opportunity to apply a short-term investment to yield high-value returns. While an unexpected position vacancy can be perceived as an overwhelming hurdle, it can also be considered an excellent opportunity to ensure the continued growth and development of your program, despite ever-increasing external pressures.

Participants will learn about how to derive value from an interim placement through using the temporary placement as a change agent to:

  • Enact plans for quality improvement, new services, or enhanced profitability
  • Strategically implement new ideas, processes, or policies
  • Bring an outside, unbiased, experienced perspective to long-standing program issues
  • Assist with onboarding the eventual new hire to the role and team
  • And more!

Don’t let a key leadership vacancy hinder program growth and viability!  Learn how a pre-screened, highly-qualified, ready-to-start Interim Manager can benefit your service line today.

Michigan Regulatory Changes: The Future of CV in ASCs

Thursday, October 7, 2021
12 PM ET

As of September 16, 2021, Michigan has updated state regulations related the cardiac services offered in Ambulatory Surgery Centers.  According to the MICHIGAN DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES CERTIFICATE OF NEED (CON) REVIEW STANDARDS FOR CARDIAC CATHETERIZATION SERVICES, already in effect, organizations with established ASCs will now be permitted to include cath/PCI in the ambulatory setting.

Inherent in these new rules is the need for any/all ASCs in the state to be accredited by a 3rd party to ensure quality of care and best-practice standards are in place.  All providers in the state should strongly consider the implications of this change on current clinical operations, market dynamics, and regional/local competition.  AND, based on the rules, existing ASCs that would like to offer cardiovascular (CV) procedures need to be prepared for accreditation to remain in compliance with the Michigan DOHHS regulations.

To ensure you’re ready for the impacts of this significant change, Corazon invites you to join us October 7 at 12 PM ET for a complimentary SPECIAL WEBINAR discussing:

  • An explanation of the new regulations and what they mean for Cath & PCI program operations in both the acute care and ambulatory settings;
  • How these changed regulations will affect access, quality, and cost of coronary intervention;
  • The rationale for strong consideration of a CV ASC for your organization;
  • Accreditation and peer review in the context of the new Michigan mandates;
  • Client examples, real-world accreditation results, and more!

Now is the time to consider your CV in ASC Strategy and what you need to ensure growth, viability, and differentiation in the evolving Michigan healthcare marketplace.  Is your hospital prepared?  

Corazon has long been a state-approved third-party accrediting body for the state of Michigan for cath / PCI programs, and we understand the full scope and impact of these new regulations. Reserve your seat today to learn what this means for your organization and how to best prepare NOW!

Peer Review: Q&A Roundtable with Our Physician Experts

Tuesday, October 12, 2021
12 PM ET

Peer review, a critical clinical program component, provides an external opinion on the quality of care being provided by physicians. The effort measures compliance with established best practices and guidelines and engages physicians in continued quality improvement (CQI) by sharing valuable feedback.   And while organizations oftentimes seek Peer Review following a negative outcome or event, this process, when done consistently and proactively, can create a solid foundation for reviewing positive outcomes and promote successful decision-making based on what’s working well for the facility.

Attendees of this session will gain clear understanding of the multi-faceted goals and rationale of Peer Review, in the context of both quality assurance/maintenance and performance improvement.  Through roundtable format with several of Corazon’s Peer Reviewers and Medical Advisors, participants will hear unique perspectives and have the chance to ask questions about how and why this strategy should be top of mind amid ever-increasing focus and scrutiny on program quality and operations.

Hear information about:

  • Why ongoing peer review is important for a program/hospital
  • The best way to use peer review findings to drive continuous quality improvement
  • The physician perspective from both sides – conducting peer review and being peer reviewed
  • The greatest value of an ongoing external peer review process
  • Positive impacts peer review has on individual physician behavior
  • Perspectives from Corazon peer review clients related to the value of ongoing external peer review
  • And more…

Make a difference in the quality and efficiency of your care delivery!  Learn how Peer Review can benefit your clinical, operational, and financial outcomes with this session.

Using Metric-Driven Care to Positively Impact the Patient Experience within Key Service Lines

Thursday, October 21, 2021
12 PM ET

Corazon’s experience demonstrates that it’s possible to achieve real and measurable impact on the patient experience through discussing, determining, and deploying a fully integrated, metric-driven approach to care. And further, using data as a means to improve the Patient Experience in key service lines can also drive improvements in clinical, operational, and financial results. But how is this accomplished? Which metrics are important? What are the best ways to operationalize such changes within an established culture?

This session will review the most impactful drivers for enhancing the patient experience within a new approach to care delivery that emphasizes the collection, analysis, and sharing of data as a foundation for decision-making. Strategies for metric development as well as the capture and utilization of meaningful performance data will be identified.

Join our experts for a complimentary webinar that will:

  • Develop an understanding of the measurement methods and resources available and the keys to identifying those methods within metric-driven care that are best suited to meet the needs of individual organizations.
  • Identify the evaluation process necessary to ensure the selection of impactful metrics that will serve to enhance the patient experience in key clinical hospital programs.
  • Discuss and identify the necessary and measurable components of fully integrated care to achieve the optimum patient experience.
  • Evaluate the overall business case and intangible value(s) in enhancing the experience patients have at your hospital.

When setting a unified vision, along with a goal for patient-centered care delivery, demonstrable increases in clinical quality scores, financial performance, patient and physician satisfaction, and patient outcomes beyond the target population can be realized.

Setting the Stage: Proactive and Strategic Growth Tactics for COVID-19 Recovery

Wednesday, November 17, 2021
12 PM ET

Proactive strategic planning must be top of mind for C-level hospital leaders in 2021 and beyond, especially as the industry recovers from the lingering challenges of 2020, while facing emerging disrupters to the status quo. This session will share proven advice and innovative solutions for setting successful strategic direction – from early planning stages to implementation – and detail the key steps for developing a practical and progressive strategic plan in consideration of program growth and efficiency.

Via case studies of several client hospitals, the speakers will showcase how strategic initiatives directly linked to market availability and financial forecasting will foster high rates of success. And since the strategic process is only effective if hospitals are able to operationalize the plan and drive goals and objectives to fruition, the speakers will share proven methods to establish actionable plans that assign accountabilities, priorities, and timeframes for strategic goal achievement. Successful programs don’t just plan; they execute, and then also measure results against the plan to track progress.

Join our experts for a complimentary webinar that will:

  • Underscore the necessary response to COVID-19 via strategic considerations for hospital growth which include:
    • Telehealth options
    • Efficient throughput of patient backlog
    • Service recovery for elective procedures
    • Shifts to ambulatory models
    • Re-staffing the teams of critical hospital service lines
    • And more
  • Discuss the unique and customized approaches used to develop realistic and attainable strategic plans for critical clinical services such as cardiovascular and neuroscience.
  • Outline the need for involvement from key physician stakeholders in the decision-making process, which can lend clarity and credibility to organizational goals and foster commitment and buy-in.
  • Reveal a sample playbook for taking an organizational vision to plan and then to reality.

Clearly-defined strategic direction is a necessity, especially when considering the clinical, operational, and financial challenges facing hospitals in the post-pandemic environment. Hospitals that take a proactive stance in understanding the changing landscape of care and its inevitable impact on hospital viability are best positioned for success.
