About This Webconference

The fundamental assumptions underpinning traditional acute care strategy are weakening. Hospitals were built on the foundations of four key assumptions: predictable price growth, steady hospital demand, limited local competition, and intact regulatory protections. But the shifts toward population health and the rise of consumerism are fundamentally changing the future demand for acute care.

Due to the historical reliance on the hospital as the primary focus of health care strategy, changing acute care delivery is an especially difficult challenge. Service lines and executive priorities have typically been designed around filling hospitals.

But this asset-based service strategy is not sustainable in a health care market that rewards outcomes based on population health. Organizations will need to shift to a service-based asset strategy that prioritizes broader system strategic needs over the individual targets of each hospital.

This two-part series will outline the tactics hospital and health system leaders need to build a sustainable acute care enterprise.

In the first presentation on April 19, attendees will learn how to redesign clinical service portfolios across the care continuum prioritizing services required for new payment models.

In the second presentation on April 26, we'll review how to reevaluate acute care capacity needs and strategically reinvest in new acute care substitutes to achieve the radical cost restructuring necessary to thrive in tomorrow's market.
