Leadership Competencies For The Future

Date: Monday – June 26, 2017

12:00 – 1:00 p.m. CDT

Diane Bradley, Regional Clinical Officer

The rapidly changing health care landscape that is facing new challenges requires a new generation of leaders who can make swift, innovative decisions. Breaking the traditional leadership model will require collaboration at all levels, creation of matrix reporting, demonstrating safe environments of care, utilizing data to support effective decision-making, maximizing value based care, ability to energize staff to improve quality care, and redesigning care models to support the lack of available talent. These are just some of the qualities that future leaders must possess. Join us for a rich discussion of future leader’s characteristics, and the impact on current thinking and the timeframe for change.

 

Denials – An Ounce Of Prevention

Date: Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Time: 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. CDT

Host: Derek Morkel, CEO of GAFFEY Healthcare and HealthTechS3

The average claim denial rate across healthcare is 5-10%. Many of us consider denials a fact of life. Fortunately, at least 90% of denials are preventable. Unfortunately, there are many broken processes from the front-end to back that continue to progress denials and make it harder to achieve maximum collections and minimize days in account receivable.
