Healthcare executives and clinical leaders predict “no clear winners, only losers” when asked to assess President Donald Trump’s impact on their industry in a survey conducted by the New England Journal of Medicine

Healthcare organizations traditionally pick managers and leaders by judging their tenure, experience and technical skill. The message from Healthcare Performance Solutions’ founding partner Tom Olivo: You’re doing it wrong.

If you're a healthcare leader looking for ways to keep experienced nurses from leaving your organization, you should examine your company's culture, according to a presentation at the American College of Healthcare Executives Congress in Chicago. Your own personality, however, won’t make much of a difference in retaining nurses.

Physician infighting and poor scores are just some of the negative outcomes awaiting healthcare leaders who don’t adequately prepare for the new Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). Speaking at the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) Congress in Chicago, healthcare consultants made the case for those in the C-suite to quickly get their MIPS “game plan” in order.

Most healthcare conferences these days seem to include sessions on promoting diversity in organizations and among leadership. Two Monday sessions at the American College of Healthcare Executives’ (ACHE) 2017 Congress in Chicago are taking a different aim to change how leaders think about diversity and focus on creating a “culture of inclusion.”
