2019 Twin Cities Healthcare Leadership Exchange

    Patient-Centered Transformation

    As healthcare leaders, we face increasing levels of complexity and uncertainty. And too often we independently work toward solutions for common challenges. The Exchange is our opportunity to come together, collaborate, and share best practices. Join us at the Twin Cities Healthcare Leadership Exchange to ensure better outcomes for both our patients and our organizations.

    Governing Board members represent the region’s largest and most prominent hospitals and systems. Board participation and feedback ensures an invitation-only, peer-driven exchange of best practices.

    Getting Upstream of the Mental Health Crisis

    Healthcare executives often rely on their communities to help them provide better care both inside and outside the hospital. Ensuring every patient has access to as many community resources as possible helps organizations proactively manage vulnerable populations – especially those struggling with behavioral health. This conversation will explore best practices in building community partnership, utilizing advanced technologies, and ensuring a culture of quality and safety to help caregivers get upstream of the mental health crisis.
