With the uncertainties in the healthcare financing system, hospitals continue to find ways to innovate and contain costs while improving performance- especially here in Massachusetts, which has such a strong regulatory mandate for cost reduction.  Join us at this timely program where we’ll look at the most viable and effective ways hospitals can stay successful in this environment. We’ll hear from national expert, Michael Nugent, on key innovations he is seeing at health systems around the country. We’ll also feature a close look at how Texas Health Resources is leveraging their workforce to gain significant operational efficiencies. We’ll highlight Massachusetts hospitals and healthcare organizations, and take a look at their strategies to provide the best care and reduce overall costs.
