Networking Breakfast & Keynote Presentation – sponsored by LeanTaaS

Wednesday, September 29 | 7:30 – 9:00 a.m. 

As health systems have grown inorganically, they naturally ended up inheriting varying practices, procedures, policies, and systems across locations and regions. This lack of “systemness” across the system has led to an inconsistent patient experience, higher costs, and missed opportunities for improved financial performance. Adopting a systemwide electronic health record alone doesn’t achieve or define “systemness,” nor do cross-team huddles without the right tools.

Achieving systemness, particularly in perioperative services, requires aligning the right people, processes, and policies around a common set of technologies. Without the right technology, systems cannot realize economies of size or scale, and they cannot identify true best practices. Invariably, millions of dollars of unused OR capacity remain on the table. Learn how your organization can tackle the challenge of achieving perioperative systemness.

What you will learn

  • Describe why “systemness” is needed to deliver a consistently high-quality patient and surgeon experience, facilitate growth, and lower costs.
  • Discuss myths and best practices for adopting tools, processes, and policies that enable “systemness.”
  • Discuss the importance of process standardization, transparency, and collaboration across departments and facilities within the broader provider’s ecosystem.
