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.

The Summer Leadership Conference 2016

leadership in healthcareWhether it’s increasing government and intermediary intervention, or recruitment and retention issues, the challenges of healthcare leadership have never been more demanding. We are being asked to do more with less.

A fascinating article in the New York Times highlights the insights gleaned by Google as it attempted to build the “perfect team”. Many of these lessons are valuable for healthcare leaders, and are front and center at The Summer Leadership Conference this July in Bermuda.

Developing teams, understanding the life cycles and stages of team development, and building high performance work groups will be covered by the facilitator Bryan Williams in a highly interactive week-long program.

Among the lessons Google learned is that how team members interact with each other – the levels of trust and emotional sensitivity – are keys to the performance of the group. These are clear the outcomes of Google’s analysis, and will resonate with you in the learning environment at the Fairmont Southampton, Bermuda.

This is the 24th 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,  and explore all the recreational, leisure and sports-related activities Bermuda has to offer.

Consider joining your colleagues, earning 15 CEUs, and recharging those leadership batteries!
