9:30 am "Sustaining a Financially Vibrant Healthcare Organization" Speaker and 
Panel  (1.5 F2F credits pending)  Premier Keynote Sponsor Bukaty Companies

Today’s healthcare executives face many challenges such as workforce shortages, updating technology, making facility infrastructure improvements and providing safe high-quality patient care. Each of these initiatives make financial challenges extraordinarily complex. In addition, healthcare leaders face ever-increasing regulatory demands and diminishing financial rewards. What organizational strategies are available to healthcare executives to affect their organization’s bottom line? How can leaders use meaningful metrics to examine such areas as product lines and supply chain costs and revenues? What are the critical links that exist between financial and non-financial managers (or clinical and non-clinical managers) that can impact the financial health of departments and the organization as a whole?

1:00 pm "Improving the Health Status of Your Community" Panel  (1.5 F2F credits pending)

Healthcare organizations exist to serve the communities in which they reside. Though community health has always been a focus for these organizations, new regulations require them to take an active role. The health of a community or geographic population has a critical impact on a healthcare organization’s planning, operations, financial sustainability, outcomes and success. Due to the implementation of the key components of the healthcare reform by legislation, it will be even more important that provider organizations are both aware of and responsive to the health status and disease states that are most prevalent in their communities. Not only is a population-based focus the right thing to do, but it may prove to be the financially astute course of action.

8:30 am "Leading a Successful Multi-generational Organization" Panel  (1.5 F2F credits pending)

In today’s complex healthcare environment, a multi-generational workforce presents unfamiliar terrain for healthcare leaders. As a result, conflicts may develop in healthcare organizations due to the generational differences in core values and work-related issues. Other factors include economic and political differences, size of each generation’s population, and the transition of younger generations to leadership roles and social influences of the generational periods. This combination of factors results in further conflict among healthcare employees. Healthcare executives must take proactive steps to create cohesion across generational segments.
10:15 am "Strategic Marketing:  Winning the Battle for Markets and Share" Panel  
(1.5 F2F credits pending) 
In today's competitive healthcare marketplace, a strategy for offering your products and services in a way that will outdistance your competitors is critical. However, in concert with defining the marketing strategy, you must also have a well defined methodology for implementation that contains a relevant and consistent message. Further, it is of little value to have a strategy and a message without the resources or the expertise to implement them. In the process of creating a marketing strategy, you must consider many factors including, but not limited to, the Four P’s of Marketing: Product, Place, Price and Promotion. A well-conceived marketing plan that is in concert with your strategic plan and the time and resources to put it in motion are the necessary elements to increase market share and support financial success. Of those many factors, some are more important than others. Because each strategy must address some unique considerations, it is not reasonable to identify 'every' important factor at a generic level. However, many are common to all marketing strategies.
