"Hospitals of the Future: Improving Quality and Efficiency".
HMP Core Class Lecture: Tuesday, March 27th 11:30am-1:00pm
In navigating to the future, hospitals need to effectively implement a number of critical strategies to improve quality and efficiency. This lecture will present an overview of "must do" strategies for all hospitals to implement today and core competencies hospitals need to master for the future. Using that as the context, the webinar will also provide an in depth discussion of an important element in improving quality and efficiency - reducing preventable readmissions. Reducing readmissions is a pressing, emerging area for which a number of quality and efficiency strategies need to be implemented to achieve improved patient outcomes. The lecture will be given to students in Christy Lemak's HMP 603 core curriculum course. Please click here to view the presentation.

Maulik Joshi will lead 20 HMP students in an engaging workshop that teaches students how to measure quality and patient safety in hospitals. The workshop will develop critical skillsets for future healthcare administrators and will be particularly useful for students who aim to enter careers that will advance organizational performance in U.S. hospitals.

He will describe numerous strategies that have catalyzed gains in quality across U.S. hospitals and will analyze specific cases. Maulik will also dive deep on strategies and tactics for effectively spreading improvement. The workshop will build skills and knowledge that will be necessary for future healthcare leaders interested in quality improvement in both policy and practice settings. Participants will also discuss how to best use these strategies during an era of rapid change in the healthcare industry. Maulik greatly looks forward to participants input, feedback, and questions to bolster the workshop. This workshop is full and is only open to current HMP full-time Masters students.
"Healthcare Transformation: What Will it Take?"

Healthcare is at a crossroads. Uncontrollable costs and suboptimal quality of care promulgates a stark need for transformation in healthcare organizations across the country. To make healthcare sustainable, we must transition to a system that prioritizes achieving better value and promoting health improvement through high-quality care. Maulik will walk through numerous strategic issues, including new payment models and advancing care coordination, that are central to reform. He will discuss actionable implementation strategies and key core competencies that will navigate healthcare leaders into the future. The Speaker Series will close with a short Q & A session. All students, staff, faculty, and community members are welcome.

Our Advisory Board members are very eager to interact with HMP students and help advance their careers. Students are paired with Advisory Board members based on their professional interests. A full breakfast from Zingerman's will be served. Each Networking Breakfast is only available to current HMP full-time Masters students.
