This presentation addresses an innovative and sustainable approach to drive transformational levels of operational and financial improvement within healthcare organizations. Using health system and payor case studies, the presentation describes a methodology, that over the course of a 100-days, converts the embedded knowledge of management and associates into actionable initiatives for improvement. The premise behind this methodology is that the best, biggest and most appropriate ideas for enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of an organization are already known internally at some level. The challenge is how to overcome the internal barriers and constraints that may have thus far prevented these ideas from being implemented. Many successful organizations have used this approach to overcome these barriers, and by the end of the project had created a portfolio of initiatives that improve profitability between 300 and 1,000+ basis points. In addition to improving financial performance, this initiative drives continuous, structured innovation and help organizations transition to a culture that emphasizes accountability. This cultural transformation ensures long-term sustainability of results.
