CONNECT, INNOVATE, TRANSFORM
Turning to One Another
by Linda Engdahl, RN (Experienced Resources Engagement Manager)
Health care in the United States is undergoing one of the most significant reformations that we have ever seen. The onset of the Affordable Care Act is catapulting organizations into unprecedented challenges and change. Cost pressure, decreasing reimbursement rates, expectations of delivering value, high cost specialties with limited margins, regulatory requirements and health system consolidations have all challenged today's health care leader's ability to navigate systems and processes. Inpatient hospital volumes are decreasing as we watch the shift to outpatient care models. In fact, by 2020, it is predicted that 20% of today's hospitals will close. Ian Morrison, author, consultant and futurist, states "We've hit the wall of affordability (in health care) for the average American and we have to transform". Morrison goes on further to identify the key work of health care leaders today, such as establishing clinical integration and scale of services, leveraging Health IT, guiding business model innovation, building cultures of quality and accountability, attracting empowered consumers, and managing the patient care experience. Organizations are being forced to connect, innovate, and transform at an unprecedented rate. > Read More
