The power of 24/7 robotic system access: How Adventist Health is unlocking more value through minimally invasive surgery

Tuesday, November 1st, 2022 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CT

Adventist Health's Simi Valley (Calif.) Hospital is a national leader in advanced surgical techniques and became the first hospital in Ventura County, Calif., to be named a Center of Excellence for Robotic Surgery in 2021.

During this webinar, two leaders from the hospital will share their journey to develop a robotic-assisted surgery program that offers 24/7 access for surgical teams and discuss how the program supports its value-based care strategy.

Key learnings:
  • The "why" behind Adventist Health's investment and the potential value-based incentives that could come
  • The importance of unfettered da Vinci surgery access for surgeons and fully trained-surgical support teams
  • The value of aligning clinical, operational and executive leadership
