    Applying Design Thinking to Healthcare’s Most Pressing Challenges

    12 ACHE Face-to-Face Credits

    MCACHE's and GLACHE's sponsorship of this program
    allows us to offer you this over $1,600 seminar for the reduced registration fee of $765
    The same highly acclaimed program offered at the ACHE Cluster Events!

    Program Description: Healthcare organizations are facing unprecedented challenges due to changing business models, adjusting reimbursement strategies and the need to accept more risk. These pressures are not likely to dissipate anytime soon, so effective leaders need to equip themselves with an expanded set of skills—and a new mindset—to stay ahead of the changes. This dynamic and timely seminar will tackle some of the most pressing challenges healthcare leaders face today and equip you with the tools you need to be successful during times of uncertainty. The presenters will use contemporary case studies, designed especially for this course, as the backbone for learning. You will then apply a design-thinking toolkit to assess current leadership and healthcare industry challenges and brainstorm plausible solutions. You will finish the course with several problem-solving approaches for today’s top issues and future business challenges.

    Seminar Objectives:

    ·         Develop new skills for analyzing current business model challenges and crafting plausible future alternatives.

    ·         Review trends and leading practices related to solving today's top industry challenges and analyze their potential impact on your organization.

    ·         Gain experience using a design-thinking-based, problem-solving toolkit that can be applied to many challenges beyond this course.

    Presented By:

    Leslie Wainwright, PhD, Chief Funding and Innovation Officer, Parkland Center for Clinical Innovations
