Leading Transformation Efforts to Improve Health

Leading Transformation Efforts to Improve Health


Join the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement and the HealthDoers Network in a one-day summit to learn how transformation efforts can improve health. The summit will provide leaders, senior executives, quality improvement and population health professionals theory and insights to help build or sustain cultures that support transformation. Participants will also learn practical ways to engage stakeholders in the transformation process – an essential element in efforts to achieve the triple aim. You’ll be surrounded by leaders with similar challenges and experiences, and learn from those who have been successful about how they did it and what they’re doing now to ensure future success.

  • Expand your understanding of large scale system theory of change and discuss how to build a culture that supports transformation in your community;
  • Explore the importance of multi-sector partnerships in healthcare system redesign;
  • Learn tactics to execute transformation strategies including specific tools to engage each stakeholder group;
  • Hear from your peers about what they have done to fuel creativity locally
