SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bridget Duffy, MD, the first chief experience officer (CXO) in healthcare and the chief medical officer of Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), will co-host a webinar on transformational experience leadership with Rick Evans, MA, SVP and CXO at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, on Tuesday, June 13, at 1 p.m. ET. These two experience leaders will discuss the latest research report by the Experience Innovation Network, part of Vocera. The network is an international group of healthcare leaders focused on researching, co-designing and disseminating innovative solutions that help restore humanity in healthcare while improving quality of care, safety and efficiency.
In May 2017, the Experience Innovation Network released its third research report on the growing and evolving role of the CXO in healthcare. Evans and Duffy will discuss key findings from the report, which includes insights from more than 200 experience leaders across the United States and Canada. Based on first-hand experiences and stories from the frontlines of hospitals and health systems, they will also explore what it takes to build transformational leadership.
“I only see experience becoming more important,” said Evans. “It’s like quality—you’re never done. It’s new for every patient. It puts an imperative on experience leaders to be savvy in other realms like operations, finance and IT. We must be able to engage in the larger strategy and get integrated. Otherwise, you’re frosting, not cake.”
The complimentary webinar will provide new perspectives gained through this research, identify strategic areas to consider for the future, and offer answers to the following questions:
- Alignment – What is the next frontier for experience leaders in breaking down silos?
- Accountability – How can leaders inspire a greater sense of ownership by all team members?
- Engagement – Why do we need to address care team burnout and engage more physicians to lead?
- Patient Voices – How can we involve patients and families more effectively in co-designing innovations?
Find out on this online discussion how experience leaders are strategically breaking down barriers to infuse a focus on human experience into every aspect of healthcare.
