Eliminating Health Inequities Among Surgical Patients: Lessons From Four Health System Leaders

It’s well documented that social factors such as income, ZIP code and housing directly affect access to surgery and surgical outcomes. As the imperative for healthcare systems to improve outcomes and reduce costs accelerates, it's essential to implement solutions to address inequities in the surgical setting, which accounts for a substantial portion of healthcare spending. But there is no one-size-fits-all approach, with every community across the nation facing unique challenges and circumstances that cause disparities. In this session, leaders from four health systems share their journey so far to eliminate health inequities among their surgical patients, describing their lessons learned and continued challenges. You’ll walk away with practical insights to deepen your organization’s health equity strategy and vision for future success.

Risk of Inaction: The New Facilities ROI

Net Asset Value (NAV) is the percent good left of a building based on what needs to be replaced. Simply put, it’s the remaining life cycle within each building and their components. Historical behaviors and chronic under-funding have led to declining NAV in most health facilities. We have now reached a tipping point where ROI should be re-defined in terms of the “Risk of Inaction.” Without additional investments or a more focused application of increasingly restricted resources, all buildings will age at an accelerated rate and become less effective in serving mission critical priorities. Consequently, these assets will not remain safe or practical solutions for patient care, and risk management will become unsustainable. Join us for this engaging session as we explore the implications of emerging facilities risk and how to ensure compatibility between facilities and clinical priorities to support, stabilize and then improve your portfolio’s NAV.
