Week 8 – Signature Assignment: Predict Healthcare Trends: A Presentation to Your Board

Instructions

As the CEO of an acute-care hospital in a metropolitan setting, you could sense it was the

start of a perfect storm. Your clinical services director asked to meet with you to discuss the

hospital’s operating room services and your executive assistant just scheduled an

appointment for you to meet with the chief of surgery. Given the coincidences, you wonder

if you should meet with them together, but you decide to not have a joint meeting.

Your meeting with the clinical services director was scheduled first. In this meeting, you were

apprised of the increasing number of out-patient surgeries being scheduled. This would

normally be welcomed news, except both out-patients and in-patients use the same

operating room facilities and the case schedule was becoming stressful for the surgeons and

nurses. Nurses were increasingly being pressured to quickly turn over the surgical suite for

the next case and the clinical services director was concerned this could lead to potential

mistakes in the operating room. Quality scores for operating services were slowly declining

with patients citing the length of time they were required to stay in the hospital for an out-

patient procedure.

The meeting with the chief of surgery had a similar tone; however, the surgeon offered a

potential solution: to move the out-patient surgeries from the hospital operating room to a

separate ambulatory surgical center located either on the campus of the hospital or within

the same geographical area. This was a particularly significant suggestion given the

magnitude of such a project. Getting the hospital board to approve such a venture would be

challenging as well. However, new models of hospital reimbursement and value-based care

guidelines show promise for this type of service and will strengthen your presentation to the

hospital board of trustees. Coincidentally, at a recent professional conference, you attended

with your colleagues, there was a presentation on this trend followed by lengthy discussion

of the benefits of moving hospital out-patient departments to ambulatory surgical centers.

You must make a case for this operational change to your board members. Earlier work with

your leadership team provided their concurrence and support to make this presentation to

the board. To show their support, your leadership team is in the audience at your

presentation to the board represented by the clinical services director, chief nursing officer,

chief finance officer, chief strategic initiatives officer, and the chief supply chair director. The chief

of surgery was called out of the board meeting due to an emergency, so you will have

to proceed without them.

There are five members on the hospital board who represent various sectors of the

community including the president of a local philanthropic organization, a banker, a lawyer,

the local police chief, and a representative from the community social services organization.

The local television station and newspaper have sent reporters to the board meeting, which

is a normal occurrence.

voice-over narration of your PowerPoint presentation. Your time on the board agenda is

details in one of your slides. A sample graphic from Word is shown here.
