Slicing and Dicing: Rethinking the Organization and Departmental Configurations of the American Hospital


Mar 19, 2019 3:00pm ‐ Mar 19, 2019 4:00pm


Credits: None available.

Description

United States hospitals are legacy institutions but may no longer reflect safe or financially effective treatment, advances in technology, or a human-centered experience. This presentation includes emerging models of care and promising planning and organizational models that contribute to improved outcomes. What if hospitals were structured on basic categories of care such as urgent/emergent, invasive/procedural, processing and distribution of materials? In redefining departments and eradicating long-standing silos of reporting structures lies the implicit promise of improved care and efficiency.

Learning Objectives:

1.) Develop a basis of understanding of the U.S. hospital and why it is the way it is.

2.) Assess examples of innovative provision of care that challenge the status quo.

3.) Improve understanding of the regulatory process and what it might take to make change.

4.) Discover why the U.S. hospital needs to be more flexible in the future.
