Part 1: Bite Size Coping During Times of Uncertainty
The level of emotional exhaustion in healthcare workers was at an all-time-high before COVID-19, with one out of three individuals meeting the criteria for burnout. In this enlightening and entertaining module, Dr. Bryan Sexton, a national expert in safety culture and teamwork, will provide some perspective, hope and simple strategies to build workforce resilience during tense times.

Part 2: Coronavirus Update: What’s Next and How to Plan
Dr. Marty Makary, a leading public health expert at Johns Hopkins and Editor-in-Chief of MedPage Today, will review the latest on the coronavirus and what organizations can do to prepare for the growing epidemic. Using plain English, he will interpret the current data from national and international studies projecting the impact to the United States. In addition, Dr. Makary will review best practices of employee policies and how to adapt your organization to deal with the epidemic in real-time.

Part 3: The Post-COVID Healthcare Landscape: Implications for Strategy
What will the U.S. health system look like post-COVID-19? Hospitals and health systems will be facing the financial aftereffects of a pandemic-related economic slowdown or recession, as well as dealing with the political uncertainties created by the 2020 national election. In addition, organizational leaders will face the continued threat of disruption from new technologies and competitors. Jeff Goldsmith, the president of Health Futures Inc., will share the most significant threats and opportunities in this post-COVID landscape. As a health services management and policy expert, Goldsmith will discuss ways that health system boards and leadership can set strategic priorities for this uncertain near-term future.

Part 4: Leading a “Quiet Revolution” for Healing During a Pandemic
According to Dayna Bowen Matthew, a public health leader, author and George Washington University Law School dean, hospitals are “hubs for racial healing” with unique roles in moving the needle toward health equity. Matthew will discuss how hospitals and health systems can lead a “quiet revolution” for healing during a pandemic.

Part 5: When Good Isn’t Good Enough: How Unconscious Bias Harms Patients During the COVID-19 Pandemic…Despite Our Good Intentions
In this session, Gloria Goins, former chief diversity and inclusion officer for Bon Secours Mercy Health System, will discuss practical actions that can be taken to reduce the effects of unconscious bias in healthcare operations. The outcomes of unconscious bias can be seen across all industries; however, in healthcare, mitigating unconscious bias is of particular importance.

Recognized as one of Becker’s Hospital Review 15 chief diversity officers in healthcare and founder and chair of the Georgetown Chief Diversity Officers’ Roundtable, Goins will share her expertise regarding evidence-based impacts of unconscious bias on safety, quality and mortality and how the healthcare industry is unintentionally putting patients at risk. Cross-cultural competency is a “must have” skill as we define what it means to address, support and manage the everchanging U.S. population, particularly as the world faces the effects of COVID-19.

Part 6: The New Healthcare Ecosystem
The COVID-19 crisis clearly illustrates that the current healthcare ecosystem is ill-prepared to deal with the type of healthcare needs that will be typical of the 21st Century. With an aging global demographic that will put more than half of the world’s population in the 60+ age group by 2060, the world’s real healthcare crisis has barely begun. The problem is not advances in medicine, the threat of future pandemics, or our ability to develop new pharmaceuticals and therapies. Greater challenges come from a healthcare ecosystem that pits payor against provider and encourages gaming of the system, poorly orchestrated supply chains, and the enormous administrative burden on providers. Business visionary Tom Koulopoulos, chairman of the Boston-based global futures think tank Delphi Group, will explain the need to refocus every part of the healthcare ecosystem on what it is best at.

The virtual summit is designed for C-Suite executives and registration is only open to IHA hospital members.

To participate, registration must be completed by 5:00 p.m. MDT on June 19.

Recordings of the sessions will be made available to registrants for two weeks post live event.
