Distribution of Services / Regional Networks: Maximizing “System-ness” to Achieve Your Fullest Potential

Tuesday, September 29, 2020
12 PM ET

Did you know that more than half of the nation’s stand-alone hospitals (53.2%) have lost money on an operating basis for each of the past five years, which is more than twice the share of system-owned hospitals (25.9%)?[i] This advantage tips to larger health systems or networks primarily due to the availability and careful allocation of resources that is better able to be balanced as those providers that demonstrate “system-ness”.  Having the ability to directly influence distribution of services or direct resources within a regional network should result in maximum gains for healthcare providers. Especially in these unparalleled times when all hospital margins have become razor thin, it is even more necessary to urgently look at resources across systems and/or networks within distinct clinical services.

Join Corazon on September 29 at 12 PM ET for a complimentary webinar that will:

  • Define the broad concepts of Distribution of Services and Regional Networks of Care
  • Leverage the resources associated with these concepts for both health systems and independent providers to include positioning for growth in key service lines
  • Predict the innovative, future models of care delivery that are associated with distribution of services and/or regional networks of care!

Ensure that you are leveraging all resources, especially in this “new normal,” to achieve maximum success of your key clinical services lines!

Discovering Leaders in Advanced Heart Failure in a Post-COVID-19 Setting

Tuesday, October 27, 2020

Advanced Heart Failure (AHF) is a life-threatening condition affecting 5 million Americans, and 500,000 new cases are identified each year. This number is expected to increase significantly as the healthcare industry better understands the long-term effects related to COVID-19 and its lingering impact on the cardiovascular system of those who contracted the virus.

For many hospitals, AHF could become a core service offering with the potential to be a high-revenue / high-demand service. And as such, the importance of the right Physician Leader for this subspecialty cannot be understated. As competition for these patients increases, hospitals should pursue new treatment strategies to ensure a reduction in admissions and readmission rates, improve survival rates, and reduce costs. Strategic recruitment of specialists and advanced practice providers should be top of mind, whether preparing for an influx of patients or working to meet the existing need in the community…

Innovative Healthcare Design in the Post-COVID World

Tuesday, November 10, 2020
12 PM ET

As people begin to seek care post-COVID, hospitals and healthcare systems must safely meet their clinical needs and gain their community’s trust. Simply delaying care indefinitely until the danger passes is not an option for many patients, especially since those requiring invasive procedures and the staff who care for them are at highest risk. Families are an integral part of the recovery process and must be included in creative ways. Operational changes need to incorporate emergent scenarios, as well as planned, elective flows. Process workflow changes alone will not be successful. A facility that supports safe and innovative care must be thoughtfully crafted, now more than ever.

During this webinar, Corazon and guest presenter Hord Coplan Macht will explore reimagining the future of healthcare design and construction to best accommodate these new operational realities of our industry today.

Join our experts on November 10 at 12 PM ET for a complimentary webinar that will:

  • Define key operational changes that support both elective and emergent procedures, protecting staff, without losing a sense of immediacy
  • Present facility design options to support safe patient, family, staff, information, and supply flows through the pre, intra, and post-procedure phases of care
  • Address multi-departmental concerns of meeting COVID and non-COVID patient needs while providing an outstanding customer experience
  • Elevate awareness of infection prevention solutions, both facility and operationally focused

Position your cardiovascular, neuroscience, and orthopedic programs for future growth and success through the parallel focus of facility design and operations!
