September 22, 11am CST | Emerging News (And Noise) about AI, Digital Health and Innovation, Gregory Fosheim

The noise about the promise of artificial intelligence (AI), digital health and innovation in healthcare is deafening at times.  In fact, today’s clinical, financial and IT leaders would be hard pressed to devise a forward-looking strategy that did not at least consider the role of innovation and such initiatives and how it can translate to healthcare quality, cost reduction and population health management.  Innovation can present questions related to challenges with accessing and deploying capital, reimbursement, financial distress, aging physicians, and repurposing of facilities.  This presentation will address answers to some of the challenges and will focus on several different ways health care providers may provide innovation to their patients.  Gregory will explore innovative opportunities, such as, cutting costs through alternative partnerships, telemedicine and engaging advanced practice providers, applying social determinants of health, drone delivery of medications, and how to use governance in innovation.  Register and learn more, click here .

September 24, 3pm CST | Mindfulness Tools for Burnout and Moral Distress, Dr. Carole South-Winter

The demands these professionals face include heavy caseloads, limited control over the work environment, long hours, and even concern over adequate PPE and moral issues in recent months. This is directly linked to increased stress and symptoms of burnout. Research supports that mindfulness training can have significant positive impacts on job satisfaction, relationships with patients, co-workers and administration; as well as increased focus and creativity. Research confirms millennia-old reports of mindfulness as a powerful promoter of personal and interpersonal health.  Register and learn more, click here .
