The healthcare environment is constantly changing, and provider organizations must adapt in order to survive and thrive. Organizations are frequently asked to respond to legislative changes, market fluctuations, safety concerns, and patient or staff demands. The success of major change implementation hinges on how it is communicated and how it impacts individuals and processes in the organization. Stakeholders frequently resist change for many reasons, including not having enough information, fear of how the change will affect them, comfort with the status quo, and not understanding the benefits of the change. For change to truly be effective, a leader must know how to effectively communicate the benefits, minimize the barriers and describe the processes. Successfully learn from your peers as they share approaches that were successful and those that impeded the change process. Join the Central Illinois American College of Healthcare Executives Chapter and Greg Wahlstrom, Kenny Boyd, Jedediah Cantrell, Lisa Fuller, and Rick Seidler hosted this 90 minute panel presentation, including Q&A, for Successfully Leading Change in Healthcare Organizations.
