How do we find collaborative solutions to the greatest challenges? Your business challenges extend far beyond you and your organization, to the competitors within your industry and the regulators outside it. Finding solutions to larger issues requires cooperation between diverse stakeholders, and in this rapidly changing world, only those able to adapt and network successfully will produce fast, competitive solutions. How can leaders successfully bridge divides and turn competitors into collaborators? Leavitt explains how a well-chosen network can become a powerful alliance. Whether you're launching a new partnership, or rehabilitating one already in progress, he will show how you can find workable solutions to the most complex problems.
In the wake the fierce health care debate in Congress, there has been a deep voter concern with health care. Political changes have breathed new energy into the national conversation about what role government should play in health coverage and financing. Policy makers are moving in different directions – some moving to advance sweeping public payer changes which would increase private sector risk, while others are focused on expanding delivery system reform and value-based care. Our federal and state experts provide insight into the latest movements in Congress, CMS, CMMI and states; what the policy environment means for the way care is paid for and delivered; and how industry leaders can thrive amid uncertainty.
The pace of change in the health care marketplace can feel both rapid and painfully slow as policy makers and health care stakeholders seek new strategies to address our most pressing cost, quality and access challenges. At Leavitt Partners we have a framework for this: we believe the U.S. is about 25 years into a 40-year transformation to a uniquely American, value-driven health care system. This journey is characterized by periods of rapid change, and experimentation, as well as understandable setbacks. Our experts and thought leaders bring data-driven insight to help audiences understand current delivery system transformation trends, the growth of value-based payment arrangements, barriers and challenges, and how organizations can thrive in the evolving health care landscape.
From the front line to the executive office, those who wish to get ahead of the curve of change need to lead, question assumptions and be realistic. Leavitt shares how very few changes can be made unilaterally and individual leadership may be the fuel of positive change, but it is ultimately the ability to work collaboratively that makes the engine purr. "You can fight change and lose. You can accept change and survive. Or you can lead change and prosper." In a world that is constantly changing, Leavitt brings a national and global perspective to the topic of leadership as the critical ingredient to success in a rapidly changing world.
