HARTFORD, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--API Healthcare, architect behind the revolutionary Healthcare Workforce Information Exchange (HwIE), is holding their annual client conference this week in Milwaukee, WI. The event brings together hundreds of peers for educational and networking opportunities that help evolve their workforce management strategy. The event kicks off with an opening keynote address featuring Paul Spiegelman, New York Times best-selling author of Patients Come Second: Leading Change by Changing the Way you Lead.
Many of the strategies shared at the event will showcase how API Healthcare clients can utilize their HwIE to better manage, develop and deploy their workforce. The healthcare industry is facing challenges unlike anything seen before. An aging healthcare workforce combined with an aging population is leading to an increased demand for affordable healthcare services. The HwIE helps organizations face those challenges by facilitating the sharing of employee-related data across an entire organization, resulting in greater consistency of care, improved staff engagement and a reduction in labor costs. Attendees will learn how to leverage their system to its fullest potential, leading to proactive, data-driven decisions that improve operations.
“Client Forum is a perfect opportunity for API Healthcare to bring clients and associates together to connect and exchange ideas,” said J.P. Fingado, president and chief executive officer, API Healthcare. “Each year we welcome the opportunity to continue our innovative vision and thought process and receive direct feedback from our clients about the challenges and issues that matter most. API Healthcare’s goal is to continually provide the most relevant and useful solutions that ensure our clients’ success in driving costs out of the healthcare system, while improving quality of care and increasing the satisfaction of the healthcare workforce.”
Paul Spiegelman, co-author of Patients Come Second will address the importance of employee engagement as it relates to creating long term success in a constantly evolving healthcare business climate. The founder and former CEO of BerylHealth and the Beryl Institute believes that in order to provide high quality care that satisfies patients, leaders must first create exceptional teams and find ways to engage employees. By connecting employees’ work with a higher purpose and equipping them with the tools to become leaders themselves, patient care can be dramatically transformed.
“It’s an honor to be invited to speak at API Healthcare’s annual Client Forum,” said Spiegelman. “The philosophies I lay out in my book align perfectly with API Healthcare’s vision of creating a more engaging workplace, and I look forward to sharing ideas for creating lasting staff loyalty and patient satisfaction with many of the leading healthcare providers in the country.”
API Healthcare Client Forum 2013 will be held June 19-21 at the Delta Center and Hilton City Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. More information can be found at the Client Forum 2013 website: http://www.apihealthcare.com/clientforum2013.
