Three Key Opportunities for Excellence in Health Care Delivery

Redefining excellence for health care, with sessions on chronic care, centers of excellence, and information technology.

Excellence in care delivery is the goal of every health care leader and provider. Why, then, do so many organizations fall short of what is possible? This free, live Web event from NEJM Catalyst, hosted by Ochsner Health System, will feature an outstanding slate of experts who will share their experiences, best practices, and frameworks for excellence with you.

The challenges of health care today are different than in the past, and so are the solutions. Through engaging talks and live, moderated Q&A, we will address three pain points shared across the health care continuum: chronic care, centers of excellence, and health IT. Our speakers and moderators – health care leaders, researchers, and entrepreneurs – will address each of these challenges and share innovative solutions.

Keynote Talk: Redefining Excellence in Care Delivery

To deliver care that patients and providers alike consider excellent, health systems will need to do things very differently in the future. The president of Ochsner Health System highlights technology and other drivers of change.

Session 1: Chronic Care

Care of chronic diseases is humbling for many clinicians. Improving the health of the increasing number of patients with chronic diseases – including diabesity, hypertension, COPD, and other expensive and prevalent conditions – requires rethinking the infrastructure of care models, addressing social determinants, and applying new technology.

Session 2: Centers of Excellence

Focused centers of excellence for musculoskeletal care and other procedures show great promise for improved outcomes, controlled costs, and better patient experience. But adoption by patients and payers is not assured, as early adopters learned.

Session 3: The Provider-Digital Interface

Clinicians bemoan the experience of using EHRs and other health IT, and health care leaders are frustrated by the cost. Clearer thinking about the digital interface with providers can improve the future of health care technology.
