HealthcareNEXT presents: Insights about Diversity & Work Climate in Michigan Hospitals with Dr. Valerie Myers

 

Metro Detroit is the most diverse and densely populated region in Michigan. How have hospital leaders responded? What steps have they taken to manage diversity and the work climate? What are the implications for the workforce, patient care, and overall competitiveness?
 
Dr. Myers will address these questions by sharing surprising insights and best practices from a study of local hospitals across the tri-county area.
 
Together, we’ll explore steps to reenergize diversity efforts, move “beyond bias,” and reap greater returns for your organization and the patients that you serve.
 
Valerie L. Myers, Ph.D. is an organizational psychologist, consultant and professor at University of Michigan's Ross School of Business. Click here to read Dr. Valerie Myer's full bio.

CHANGE HAS CHANGED

 
Few industries have undergone more change - or more involuntary change - recently than healthcare. As a result, many change-weary leaders and teams are suffering from "change fatigue," a phenomenon that results when the amount and pace of change exceeds individuals' capacity to assimilate those changes.
 
Join Leadership and Strategic Change Consultant, Jean Ann Larson, for a fascinating overview of change and its impact upon ourselves and our organizations.
 
Jean Ann will discuss the signs and symptoms of change fatigue and strategies for both individual and team renewal to build more effective change capabilities, as well as, safeguarding against future encounters with change fatigue. Click here for Jean Ann's full bio.
 
Following her remarks, Jean Ann will continue the conversation with a dynamic panel of experienced and successful change agents in healthcare: Denise Brooks-Williams, Margaret Dimond and Dr. Reginald Eadie.

OCT. 1 - HealthcareNEXT: Consumerism and the Patient Pocketbook

A patient's perspective on health care options is rapidly changing with a greater demand to understand health care's value proposition. With the advent of high deductible plans, increased transparency of service, access, quality and price, health care is being driven by patients as consumers more than ever before.

The power of choice is causing disruption in how health care is accessed and delivered, especially as patients are increasingly responsible and accountable for their health care expenses.

This panel discussion will explore the evolving role of the patient as a consumer and the implications of these changes for the industry, through the lenses of population health, patient empowerment and accountability, and behavior change.
