A healthy community translates into cost-savings for a healthcare system. The shift to value-based care has prompted many healthcare organizations to focus on population health to better serve patients—requiring strategic thinking, substantial investment and innovative programs. NCH Healthcare System in Naples, Florida, dramatically changed their care delivery to cultivate a healthier patient population—resulting in a $10 million save. Now they’re putting it all on the line by investing their savings into a community-wide program and engaging other stakeholders.

In this live e-conference, hear NCH leaders discuss the strategy behind reducing costs while improving patient outcomes for a widely diverse population. Achieving a turnaround in care meant bringing together key decision-makers, reorienting their culture from top down, hiring a CMO from outside the traditional care mindset, partnering with high-performing independent physicians and increasing case management staff. Expanding their undertakings in population health, NCH also has launched the Blue Zones Project to foster wellness efforts in the community by targeting individuals, worksites, schools, restaurants and other organizations. 

This 3-hour program covers:

  • Hear how NCH promoted healthy behaviors among its employees, resulting in a $10 million savings and being able to negotiate more favorable insurance rates
  • Discover how NCH reduced length-of-stay on its acute-side through growing its hospitalist group, increasing weekend staffing and establishing a separate unit to care for chest pain patients 
  • Learn tactics for performance improvement for both inpatient and outpatient settings--including identifying disruptions to caregivers, compensating physicians for better outcomes and opening after-hours clinics
  • Hear about the Blue Zones Project, and why a healthy population renders financial rewards for both a healthcare organization and the community
