Financial Implications: The Push from Inpatient to Outpatient Care

Thursday, March 19, 2015, 1:00 to 2:15 PM

Financial Implications: The Push from Inpatient to Outpatient Care
The shift from inpatient to outpatient care, which has been partly driven by payers across the financial continuum, aims to reduce healthcare costs associated with expensive inpatient admissions and to provide safe, efficient care in the most cost-effective setting. The degree of financial impact from this shift in care delivery structure will vary from organization to organization, however all organizations will be affected.

Communication Power

Friday, March 20, 2015, 8:15 to 9:30 AM

Communication Power is a fun and interesting session led by Jeff Johnson, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Hawes Financial Group. The truth is that we all communicate non-stop throughout our day. In fact, we are so comfortable with our own style of communication that we often take for granted that those around us understand what we are saying. This unwise con"dence daily creates the barriers that impede individuals, companies, even countries from succeeding. In fact, the key factor causing con#icts between individuals, organizations and even countries usually stems back to poor communication. Learn the key reasons why communication fails (learn to avoid the pitfalls).
