Innovation in health care leadership focus of next month’s Leadership Development Conference
WSMA’s annual Leadership Development Conference is just around the corner—May 18 and 19 at Campbell's Resort on Lake Chelan. This year’s conference theme—innovation in health care leadership—is timelier than ever, with clinicians facing unprecedented shifts in how health care is delivered, how it’s paid for, and the policies that help define it. Physicians, physician assistants and administrators of all leadership levels are encouraged to attend to take advantage of the top-quality programming and continue cultivating the skills needed to influence the future of health care decision-making.
At the conference, you’ll hear from leading national experts who will inspire new ways of thinking about how to lead during challenging times. Presenters include Jason Hwang, MD, MBA, an internal medicine physician with deep expertise in health care innovation, who will present this year’s Thomas J. Curry Leadership Keynote Address, “The Innovator’s Prescription: A Disruptive Solution for Health Care;” and Susan Reynolds, MD, PhD, a physician leadership coach and former emergency physician, CEO and White House health care advisor, who will present “Effective Communication to Build a Collaborative Team.”
You’ll also hear from local health system leaders who are seeing results from innovative team models that reduce costs and improve workflow, patient access and patient and provider satisfaction, including Brian Seppi, MD, chief medical officer for Providence Medical Group; Stuart Freed, MD, chief medical officer of Confluence Health in Wenatchee; and Elise Ernst, MEd, MSW, vice president of practice management at The Polyclinic in Seattle.
