Healthcare Growth Spending and the Role of Benefit Design Innovation
Wednesday - 21st Saturday, 2015
Michael E. Chernew, Leonard D. Schaeffer Professor of Health Care Policy, Director, Healthcare Markets and Regulation (HMR) Lab, Department of Health Care Policy. Harvard Medical School, USA
When thinking about innovation in health care, the immediate thought is about new technologies such as medicines, diagnostics, and new frontiers in microbiology. These provide wonderful new ways to improve health outcomes at a time when demographics, disease dynamics, and other factors are stressing health care systems globally. Yet they also often generate higher spending.
Managing the challenge of promoting access to innovative services in a fiscally responsible way involves strategic thinking about how resources can be combined in novel ways to deliver better care: it is about thinking differently and smarter, not just faster and with a focus on cost cutting.
This module has been developed to provide understanding healthcare spending trends and ways to address those trends. The curriculum focuses on critical strategies such as benefit design and PAYMENT POLICY. It will include discussion of value in health care and tools to identify low value services.
- Understand the long term drivers of spending growth
- Understanding the relationship between innovation and spending growth
- Understanding the pathways by which innovations affect spending
- Understanding the economic concepts behind benefit design innovations
- Understanding value based insurance design and its relationship to reference pricing and tiered networks
- Understanding the empirical evidence about the impact of benefit design
- Understanding novel payment models and associated evidence of their impact
- Exploring ways to identify low value and wasteful services
Total Quality Management
Sunday - 22nd November, 2015
Dr. Ossama Mosallam, TQM Dr. American University of Cairo | Dr. of Healthcare Management, Boston University, USA | Co-founder & Board Member of the Scientific Council of the Egyptian Medical Board for Hospital Management (El Zamala El Masrya), Egypt
The healthcare industry is becoming progressively challenging with advances in technology and medicine. There is a continuous pressure for zero sum error while expectations with respect to reducing the delay time and providing prompt patient care are increasingly surmounting. The organizations and institutions leading the show are those who are committed towards continuous quality improvements and therefore they take an edge in earning consumer preference and trust. Hospitals and other healthcare organizations across the globe are progressively being attracted to implement Total Quality Management (TQM) solutions in order to reduce costs, improve efficiency and provide high quality patient care services.
The origin of quality assurance initiatives in the healthcare industry extends back to the work of Florence Nightangle during the Crimean War (1854-1856). During this period the introduction of nutrition, sanitation and infection control initiatives in war hospitals contributed to reduction in the death rate from 43% to 10%. Similarly, today TQM can play an important part in establishing healthcare organizations competitive strategy; thus improving customer satisfaction and offering higher prospects for great market share and profitability. This module presents effective strategies for applying TQM solutions to healthcare industry and outlines how organizations can maintain competitive advantage while ensuring highest standards of quality in services and products

Leadership and Management in a fast changing healthcare field: The Case of Inter-Professional Collaborative Practice Teams
Monday - 23rd November, 2015
Prof. Stefane Mostafa - Dean of the School of Environment and Health Sciences, Canadian University of Dubai
Today's healthcare organizations are undergoing a rapid transformation phase. Shifting from classical health care management to a robust model, the health care vicinities are trying their best to manage the organization by cutting down costs and increasing the value delivered to the customers. However, not every nursing home and hospital has been able to complete the transformation and are still struggling to draft management performance guidelines for effective measurement of productivity and customer services.
This module has been designed and developed to enable the attendees achieve maximum performance output. The attendees of this consortium will also understand the value of the key performance indicators in a health care setup. The guidelines will be provided with the help of real life case studies where effective performance management was introduced to enhance the overall output of the organization.
- Setting up methods of focusing on organizing along with overall performance aims
- Components for precisely managing and monitoring overall performance of the organization
- Ways of ensuring accountability for results
- Ways of ensuring that responsibility for performance improvement is shared
- Ways of addressing quality and safety issues as well as those of activity and cost
