Achieving Healthcare Transformation

Huron Healthcare’s CEO Forum brings together leading executives to share their visions for the future.

“Transforming the healthcare enterprise clinically, financially, and operationally is a major challenge, but provides a great
opportunity to deliver on the promise
of better healthcare.”

“The big question is how you cover the full continuum of care and make it seamless, without losing revenue…The industry has to figure out how to make new models work.”

“Our organization is working to grow top-line revenue. However, we’re also very focused on managing expenses. Reducing cost is very important for the current and future environment.”

“Markets are driving different responses, but providing higher quality care at a lower cost is a winning strategy under any scenario. CEOs continue to show a commitment to that approach.”

“UCLA Health System is very integrated… We use data to drive quality and our culture encourages those efforts. Underperforming physicians tend to either improve or leave.”

“Clinical integration isn’t simply about whether orthopedics talks to primary care. It is also about long-term support services in the communities we serve.”

“We have everyone economically and strategically aligned for the first time. We are now evaluating new ways to manage and govern the clinical enterprise.”

“Hospitals have to navigate the transition from volume to value, recognizing that they may be investing in care activities that are not supported by the current patient payment model. Managing during this transition is one of the largest challenges CEOs face.”

“ It’s especially hard for physicians and others who are trained to be perfectionists to operate effectively in ambiguity—but they can learn to do it.”

Gary Kaplan, M.D.

“As we consider new kinds of partnerships, and different kinds of funding, we need leaders who can think like entrepreneurs, who can help us excel in the new business environment.”

“You can’t hire leaders who have everything you need for tomorrow because you don’t know what tomorrow looks like. You can hire people who are both talented and incredibly compassionate—and who will come to work every day with integrity, humility, and passion.”

David Feinberg, M.D.
