Intended for solution providers and ASHE associate members, this panel of health care facility managers will offer key insights for working with and assisting health care organizations in achieving their mission and goals.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how health care is unique from other markets, including its sensitivities specific to its field, e.g., infection prevention, HIPAA, and the Joint Commission.
  • Identify challenges that can be mitigated by health care facility managers and the critical factors relative to their mission.
  • Overcome common misconceptions and mistakes that may be negatively perceived by facility managers.
  • Explain how various health care facilities make business decisions and how they manage to do more with less.
