9:15am – 10:30am             Keynote: Creating a Culture for Success – Creating a Culture for Success!

Brian Garver, Senior Vice President, Keybridge Medical Revenue Care

Discover how to create a culture of success that produces superior financial results, optimal employee satisfaction AND drives patient satisfaction. No matter what business you’re in, your success can very often boil down to one thing – your culture.  You may offer the very best medical care for your patients with the big dollars to promote it, but it’s the people that will really define how successful you are.  Your employees have the power to make or break your brand. A deeply embedded culture of success inspires loyalty in employees and makes them want to be a part of a team.  It motivates people to do the right thing, not just the easy thing.  At companies with winning cultures, people not only know what they should do, they know why they should do it.This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • CHOOSING your culture rather than culture by default.
  • Design a patient-first culture around 4 core principles
  • The impact of culture on patient satisfaction and how to use it as a strategic competitive advantage
  • Ensure complete buy-in from every member of your team

The healthcare industry is shifting focus. The way in which we provide, receive, access, and pay for health care is turning upside down due to a polarizing force we call population health. This presentation will define population health from both the perspective of the individual patient and healthcare organizations. The session will explain how to adopt a population health mindset by focusing on preventive service, utilizing accessible technology, and aligning incentives.
