The Triple Aim or Three Bull’s-Eyes? The Summer Leadership Conference

The “triple aim” in healthcare refers to the drive to increase quality, improve the customer experience, and lower cost. For healthcare managers, this triple aim may seem more like three bull’s-eyes painted on our backs!

Bull’s-eye #1

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), have released thousands of pages of new and proposed regulations regarding hospital services, physician payment, and long-term care services. These changes are dramatic.

Bull’s-eye #2

In the midst of this, healthcare providers are experiencing significant declines in demand and utilization. Hospital occupancy, skilled nursing occupancy, and other measures of health care utilization are lower than in years past.

Bull’s-eye #3

Labor costs and economic pressures are beginning to feel like it’s the 1980s, rather than 2017. With restrictions to payments, and declining occupancy & utilization, increasing labor and supply costs could be the last straw on many a camel’s back.

In spite of these three bull’s-eyes, healthcare managers are expected to carry on, demonstrate leadership, and manage effectively in the midst of this turbulence.

Tote that Barge, Lift that Bale

Taking a break from the relentless stress is not only a good idea, it may be essential to continued health and sustainability for many managers.

Make Your Own Luck! Attend the Summer Leadership Conference

“The harder I work, the luckier I get.” This quote and variations of it have been attributed to Thomas Jefferson and Samuel Goldwyn, among others. We may never know who actually said it, but regardless, the sentiment is clear: Luck is something we make for ourselves through perseverance, work, and by seizing opportunities. This seems especially apropos as we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this week. It’s a reminder that we can all be Irish for one day, and lucky, IF we work hard enough!

As we all know, there are potentially huge changes looming in healthcare and long-term care. Nothing could be clearer than the need to develop leadership in this environment. The Summer Leadership Conference, to be held in Bermuda from July 24–28, 2017, is an opportunity to do just that; it provides a unique, once-a-year chance to replenish, recharge, and refocus.

This is the 35th annual edition of The Summer Leadership Conference, a testament to its value to the participants (many of whom have been coming for years), and its endurance as a high-level event, attracting leaders who want to share experiences, in addition to exploring all the recreational, leisure, and sports-related activities Bermuda has to offer.

In light of the coming changes and potential challenges in our industry, let’s work harder, play harder, and conjure up some luck! Consider joining your colleagues, earning 15 CEUs, and recharging those leadership batteries!

We’re thrilled to have as our Facilitator for the 2017 Summer Leadership Conference, Clint MaunMaun-Lemke President and Senior Partner.
