Tumultuous Past, Tenuous Future: Trends and Their Impact on Health Care and Lessons for Effective Governance

Jamie Orlikoff, President, Orlikoff & Associates, Inc., National Advisor on Governance and Leadership to the American Hospital Association, and health care governance expert

As the U.S. and its health care system attempts to recover from COVID, we are bombarded by questions and challenges: What will the “new normal” of the post- or perpetual-COVID health care landscape look like? What are the implications of the war in Ukraine and a possible recession on U.S. finances and federal willingness to assist hospitals that were economically devastated by COVID? How do we help our workforce recover to sustainability? And many others. These unprecedented trends challenge health care governance to step up as never before. This provocative workshop will review the lingering and emerging environmental trends on hospitals and health systems, outline and analyze the governance and leadership lessons learned, and present strategies for boards to create new approaches to effective governance to protect the future of their hospitals and communities.


The Quest for Quality: Achieving Quality Health Care and Advancing Health in Communities

Join the 2022 Quest for Quality honorees in an interactive workshop that will expand your understanding of how to engage everyone in the hospital/health system and partner with others to improve quality, safety and community health status. The discussion will include:

  • Raising awareness of a commitment to advancing health in America by providing access to exceptional quality, safe, and patient- and family-centered and affordable care that promotes individual and community well-being and adds value to lives.
  • Showcasing efforts to develop and promote new and innovative models of care, services and collaboration to provide seamless care.
  • Inspiring hospitals and systems to lead and partner with other community organizations to improve health status and address health care disparities.
  • Recognizing hospital and system leadership to improve efficiency and effectiveness of care.

Organizational Resilience: Increasing Adaptive Capacity in Health Care

Laurie Baedke, FACHE, FACMPE, Director of Healthcare Leadership Programs, Creighton University

When adversity or crisis strikes, and it inevitably will, the exposure to us as individual leaders, and to our organizations and the communities we serve, is high. Health care is replete with disruption and specific challenges occasionally arise that stress our processes and systems even more than usual. When we experience disruption, our innate individual and organizational tendency is to “return to normal.” But progressive, high-performing organizations leverage disruption for growth and progress. As Darwin posited in 1859, “it is not the strongest of the species that survives, but rather, that which is most adaptable to change.”

Drawing on a body of evidence-based research around organizational resilience and adaptive capacity, and lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, this practical, two-hour session will deliver practical and actionable content to equip leaders to apply the principles of resilience to increase adaptive capacity and steward themselves and their organizations more effectively.
