Mastering Physician Engagement: A Practical Guide to Achieving Outcomes

May 15, 2017
4:00pm - 4:30pm
Grand Ballroom

All eyes these days are on technology as the means to drive down costs and improve efficiency, and, especially, to enable physicians to deliver care in a way that realizes the vision of a healthier planet.

Of course, this is easier said than done. The transition from the traditional focus on acute care to the quality and data-driven organizations of tomorrow requires incredible effort and collaboration between all members of the healthcare community. And physician engagement with the whole community has never been more important.

In this session, health IT thought-leader Leigh Williams, administrator for business systems at the University of Virginia Health System, distills valuable best practices from her book (co-written with physician informaticist John Showalter), Mastering Physician Engagement: A Practical Guide to Achieving Shared Outcomes.

In her engaging and informative style, Leigh will explore strategies and tactics for engaging physicians in a meaningful way in a broad spectrum of change initiatives. Using proven techniques to create alignment with physicians, Leigh will deliver practical approaches for effectively:

  • Fostering engagement information technology and population health initiatives
  • Creating a data-driven culture.
  • Training physicians on new technologies and workflows.
  • Communicating insights and metrics.
  • Identifying and presenting return on investment.
  • Developing and achieving common goals.
