Kate Wilkinson, Vice President- Quality and Clinical Programs, Sinai Health System
Raj Sewda, Vice President- Patient Care, Chief Nursing Executive and Chief Privacy Officer, Runnymede Healthcare Centre

Value based care is an emerging concept adopted by many healthcare organizations to promote clinical efficiency, control rising health care costs, and ensure patients receive the right care at the right time. However, many healthcare leaders are fearful to self-initiate the level of care required to succeed in an era in which innovation and speed of change must become their ultimate competitive advantage. This session assists participants in understanding evolution of healthcare organizations from a volume-based world to a value-based world. It offers participants insight on limits of contemporary methods to successfully attain the required level of transformational change and the characteristics of a top performer.

12 Noon Adjournment

This program has been developed and is presented locally by the Canadian Chapter of ACHE. The American College of Healthcare Executives has awarded 3.0 ACHE Face-to-Face Education Credits to this program.
