CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) has launched a new educational program for health care executives working on population management. Taking place September 29 to October 1 at the Dolce Palisades Executive Conference Center in Palisades, New York, the IHI Population Management Executive Development Program will help leaders better navigate the knowledge and the steps necessary to making an effective transition from fee-for-service to value-based health care delivery. Participants will hear from clinical faculty and learn from their peers about the best practices for redesigning care delivery, ways to integrate data systems, methods for leveraging financial models, and strategies for gaining buy-in from key figures within their organizations.
“Transitioning to population health management is an incredibly complex undertaking. It requires both the redesign of clinical processes and practices as well as reaching beyond organizational walls to develop partnerships with communities and stakeholders invested in health outside of health care,” said Dr. Trissa Torres, Senior VP at IHI, a leading innovator in health and health care improvement worldwide. “By giving leaders the ability to learn from peers and share solutions, we smooth out some of the complexities and accelerate the drive toward improved population outcomes and reduced cost — both for individual organizations and the industry as a whole.”
Dr. Torres will be joined by expert faculty to teach this program, including:
- D. Clay Ackerly II, MD, M. Sc, Assistant Chief Medical Officer for Non-Acute Services, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Associate Medical Director for Population Health and Continuing Care, Partners Healthcare
- George Kerwin, President & CEO, Bellin Health
- Al Kurose, MD, FACP, President & CEO, Coastal Medical
- Saranya Loehrer, MD, MPH, Director, IHI
- L. Gordon Moore, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Treo Solutions
- Jed Weissberg, MD, Senior Fellow, Institute for Clinical Economic Review
Enrollment is recommended for individuals or teams spanning population management roles, C-suite executives, clinical executives, data managers, physician and nurse leaders, ACO leaders, medical directors, risk managers, and quality or improvement leaders.
