Join the conversation #GVMHchat


Wednesday of this week Kyle Adkins and I have the great honor of presenting at What’s Right in Healthcare.

What’s Right in Healthcare (WRIHC) is the Studer Group’s premier conference and this year it’s in Chicago.  Here’s a brief description:

Each Studer Conference includes internationally renowned keynote speakers and tracks concentrated on key areas of the healthcare organization. Each track includes breakout sessions and “how-to” workshops that provide you with direct access to experts and conference faculty.

The interprofessional faculty at Studer Conferences go beyond PowerPoint slides and lectures to show you “what right looks like” with live-on-stage role-playing. Each track and breakout session provides interprofessional healthcare leaders with an authentic, practical learning experience.

Our commitment to you is that leaders will leave Studer Conferences with new tools and skills that get results.

Kyle and I are doing a breakout session titled “The Art and Science of Validation” and we will be speaking about how we use validation to drive improvements in behavioral and clinical processes at GVMH.  In health care we often only get one chance to do it right and when we’re talking about doing it right we’re not talking about HCAHPS or quality or finance, we’re talking about patient safety.  Validation helps to drive consistency and consistency helps to ensure patient safety.

It’s a great honor to be invited to speak at the event and this is our second consecutive year to take the stage at WRIHC.  As a part of our presentation we will be hosting a Twitter Chat.  If you’d like to join in follow #GVMHchat on Twitter.  The presentation is Wednesday, August 5th, at 11:00 am and if you can’t follow it live you will be able to use the GVMHchat hashtag to see the discussion that should continue for days beyond the talk.  It’s our goal to start a conversation and then learn from others across the country.
