Healthcare CEO Advisory Board Group

3rd Thursday of the month from | 8:30 am – 11:30 am| Sacramento, CA

Upcoming Meeting

November 15, 2018

Opening Discussion Topic:

Lessons from New Tech Implementations

With the increasing incorporation of new health IT systems and programs into all aspects of healthcare management and delivery, chances are strong you’ve personally been involved in – or at least impacted by – several “new system” roll-outs in your current or former healthcare businesses. During our Group Discussion, we’ll look to hear your best practices developed to bring everyone onboard, minimizing the pitfalls that all too often accompany “new tech go lives.”

Go-Round Discussion of Individual Issues: During this time, each Member of the Group is given an opportunity to share an “issue” in order to receive knowledgeable and confidential feedback on how best to tackle that issue. Issues often center around: management/planning concerns, how to best respond to new industry trends, fleshing out a new strategy, what were the best practices used (or hazards) from fellow Members who have dealt with a similar issue. In order to get the most value from each session, we encourage our Members to bring an issue for discussion to each meeting.

Featured Member:

Matt Diaz, Regional Vice President at Maxim Healthcare Services, Inc.

Maxim Healthcare Services provides home healthcare, healthcare staffing, behavioral care, and population health and wellness services across the U.S. Because the Western Region is Maxim’s largest – encompassing California, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington, every time a new system is rolled-out it impacts thousands of caregivers in nearly a hundred locations. This will definitely be the case with Maxim’s new Electronic Visit Verification System mandated by the federal 21st Century Cures Act.
