ACCESS AS A STRATEGIC INITIATIVE
Health systems require multiple points of entry for financial success. However, high-performing systems go further to improve access by assuring patient entry points are seamlessly connected, reliable functions that provide value to patients and providers. What questions should be asked at an organizational level, and how do you encourage faculty and staff to embrace the access mindset throughout every step of the cycle of care? The Vanderbilt University Hospital and Clinics CEO leads us through a thought-provoking session on the timeliness, convenience, and appropriateness of patient access.
