Social media is a vital tool for hospitals and health care organizations to connect with their patients and greater communities. Now, more than ever, communication via social media platforms is essential for the delivery of pertinent and timely information. When used regularly and correctly, social media is an incredible lifeline to your hospital’s audience and a valuable marketing tool to grow your base and improve your customer service.

But social media has its pitfalls, too. This webinar with health care governance expert Kevin Reed (Reed Claymon, LLC) will explore both the opportunities and dangers of social media – and how board members and executive leadership can avoid making major missteps in the various platforms that exist. Learn about new and developing social media platforms for your hospital, utilizing social media to magnify the positive of your organization (and respond to the negative), legal issues that exist, and best practices for using these online communication tools – at your literal fingertips!

Key State Health Legislative Issues Facing Leaders –
Impact of Medicaid Expansion in Idaho

Presented by

Numerous public policy and legislative issues around healthcare delivery and public health affect healthcare organizations and demand involvement of their leaders to respond and adjust organizational policies and procedures. These issues often relate to improving population health, access and coverage through Medicaid and other programs, improving value, addressing consumer issues and workforce shortages, and more. Recent changes to Medicaid in the State of Idaho are having a direct impact on these issues.  Learning these issues and being involved in policy and organizational responses is important for healthcare leaders, regardless of how directly they may be involved.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the state of Medicaid in Idaho – expansion, funding, waivers, managed care, reimbursement, etc.
  • Review access and coverage changes – eligibility expansion, uninsured individuals, etc.
  • Describe the impact of Medicaid expansion on population health and state and community health status
  • Other impacts Medicaid expansion has had, and will have, on the State of Idaho

  • Moderator:  Larry Tisdale, VP of Finance and CFO, Idaho Hospital Association
  • Panelist:  Lori Wolff, Deputy Directory, Idaho Department of Health and Welfare
  • Panelist:  Jim Johnston, Regional VP – Managed Government Programs, HCA Healthcare Corporate
