Grow Or Die: Surviving Both The Pandemic & Private Equity

Keynote Address
Private equity investments in health care are changing the outlook for sustainability of traditional provider organizations—with new service offerings, investment capital for technology and marketing, pressure on fees, and the ability to accept value-based reimbursement. This increased competition creates challenges for traditional provider organizations. The weakened financial state of many provider organizations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic means private equity and other investment firms will need to be in position to react fairly promptly to the opportunities presented by any financial failures. Where does your provider organization stand? Are you a potential target for private equity interests and if so, how can you leverage the opportunity to sustain and grow while preserving your mission? And if not, what can you learn from the competition to stand up to them? Our keynote speaker, Mark Mishek, from Hazeldon Betty Ford Foundation, will provide best practices for how to “right size” your organization and grow “in your lane.” He explores the private equity challenge based on his 30+ years of experience as a health care executive, including in hospital systems.

Strategic Decision-Making In Times Of Change—Colonel Joshua Chamberlain & Little Round Top: Defending The Union Line

Leadership Through The Lens Of History
Robert Prosperi, Licensed Battlefield Guide, will lead a virtual tour of Little Round Top and the surrounding area. Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and his 20th Maine regiment’s defense of Little Round Top is perhaps one of the most famous confrontations of the Battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War. Little Round Top is the smaller of two hills south of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and the position of the far-left flank of the Union Army during the Battle of Gettysburg. On the second day of the battle, Union troops left this strategic ground undefended, leaving the Union line open to attack from Confederate forces. Colonel Chamberlain was ordered to guard this position and quickly understood the strategic significance of the small hill—meaning that his regiment must hold the Union line at all costs. In the last moments, as all seemed lost, Chamberlain ordered a bayonet charge that swung around almost doubling back on its own line and capturing more than 100 soldiers and maintaining the Union defense of the high ground of the battlefield. This session examines how Colonel Chamberlain, in times of great distress, recognized the power of strategic thinking, made the necessary quick decisions, and preserved the overall goal of the Union Army. Colonel Chamberlain’s own battlefield experiences help us to realize the importance of good leadership, and to examine transactional and transformational leadership styles. This session will include a review of the Union army’s defenses on day two of the battle, a discussion of the history of the battlefield site, and time for questions and discussion with our guide. At the conclusion of the virtual battlefield tour, we will wrap up the session with a lively discussion of the leadership lessons learned from the Colonel Chamberlain and the application of those lessons for managing your health care team.

A ‘Whole Life’ Approach To Managed Care: Emerging & Future Health Plan Models

Keynote Address
About 70% of health care spending is attributable to environmental and lifestyle factors with the remaining 30% due to genetics and health care service access and quality. The high and likely long-term unemployment rates caused by the pandemic are likely to exacerbate the impact of social determinants—environment and lifestyle—on health resource use. For these reasons, health plans are increasingly adopting programs that address social safety net issues and measuring their return-on-investment in both improved outcomes and reduced costs. Mr. Lovelace will provide a perspective on current initiatives at UPMC for moving to whole person care—and what he sees in the future.
