Statewide HealthcareNEXT Virtual event
United States of America
Leadership Insights & Imperatives for the Future of Healthcare
2020 has delivered monumental change and fundamental disruption for every industry.
Healthcare organizations of every kind – providers, insurers, and suppliers -- had to quickly steer in new directions to meet new customer demands in response to public health and societal crises.
Leaders made decisions at lightning speed -- re-thinking and re-tooling workflows, assessing and reallocating human and financial resources, establishing partnerships and coalitions and introducing new technology and innovation to ensure safe, accessible care. What can we learn from these experiences to better manage what’s ahead in this next normal?
Join Inforum for its first Statewide Virtual HealthCareNext event to hear from a panel of experts about how they successfully led their organizations through crises. And how the lessons they learned are informing and driving change and future success. We will discuss:
• Leading in new ways
• Evolving our business culture
• Serving our community
