126X – Integrate and Co-Create: Bridging Connections for Growth and Value

Thursday, March 26th

About the Session

This seminar will begin with an overview of what strategic challenges and potentially new opportunities have led to the need to create better integration across organizations. Key implications for healthcare leaders will be identified. The program will then move into an overview of potential frameworks and approaches at the presenters’ organizations that have led to greater collaboration and cocreation of more successful outcomes. Strategy leaders from Sheppard Pratt and Spectrum Health will illustrate their approaches and then engage the audience in an interactive discussion to delve into how to identify gaps within their own organizations. Review examples of those gaps, and what successful elements of the presented approaches may be useful as a starting point or as a further iteration from your current state.

You will envision “first steps or next steps” in your organizational transformation to ensure collaboration, create much needed coalitions and seek diverse inputs. Faculty will share skills required to bring about this change, including coalition building, facilitation, open collaboration and integrative thinking. This will help you identify potential skill gaps and learning opportunities as well as demonstrate how these skills magnify the ability of organizations to plan and deliver necessary change more quickly. You will also receive take-home tools that support these efforts.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize gaps that exist within organizations and identify opportunities for collaboration and coordination to be competitive in a value-based environment.
  • Discover approaches and supporting tools to effectively integrate across organizations and co-create solutions that will drive business growth and value.
