Day 2, September 30, 1-5 PM EDT

The Art & Science of Execution: Process, Practice, Technology

The process to achieve organizational goals is a journey: it takes thoughtful analysis and deliberate action with progress rarely following a straight or consistently forward path. Today, experts from many disciplines will take you on an excursion – setting goals, identifying metrics to analyze performance, developing a plan, and course-correcting when the unexpected occurs. Our consultants will navigate the discussion from the viewpoint of leaders across home health and hospice—sales, quality, clinical operations, finance, and IT. Participants will walk away with a greater understanding to compare their organizations with benchmarks and what to do with operational teams based on the available data and other information.
