Leadership Competencies for the Next Generation of Healthcare Executives

Thursday, November 17, 2016 | 11:00am - 12:00pm CT 

With the coming move to value-based contracts, healthcare leaders will need to invent new modes of delivering and managing care and the total cost of care for populations covered under value-based contracts.  They will need to lead a customer-centric organization that delivers care whenever and wherever the customer wants to access it.  The new leadership positions will be asked to drive change in the way care is delivered, without necessarily controlling operations. The next generation of leaders will need to be innovative, tech savvy, and data-driven, leaders who excel at collaboration, leading through influence, and winning cooperation of others.

Learning Points:

  • The competency requirements for the next generation healthcare leader will be notably different from those of the traditional hospital or health system administrator.
  • The leadership positions will lead change through influence without necessarily controlling operations.
  • Hospital administrators will be refocused on managing cost centers according to protocols and standards set by others, and the real leaders of healthcare systems will be those focused on developing and implementing capabilities for managing population health through clinically integrated networks and managing high-acuity services across systems with the highest possible level of reliability.
