Thibodaux Regional Brings Nationally-Renowned Healthcare Leaders To Discuss the Future of the Industry

There are many changes occurring in the healthcare industry today which are challenging organizational leaders to develop and embrace new skills and models of strategic thinking. Thibodaux Regional believes continuously improving and managing change is essential, and innovation is needed to survive and thrive. As the region’s healthcare leader, Thibodaux Regional created Innovation Summit ’18 to bring together nationally renowned speakers to discuss care transformation, population health, innovative wellness practices, and emerging financial models.

The two-day conference held in the Wellness Center Conference Center began with opening remarks from Thibodaux Regional CEO Greg Stock, followed by keynote speaker, Dr. Brent James, former Chief Quality Officer at Intermountain Healthcare and now Strategic Advisor at Health Catalyst. Stock also shared the story of Thibodaux Regional’s “Journey to Excellence” and the hospital’s innovative wellness vision. Other top thought leaders and innovative healthcare industry experts from across the country, including Amy Flaster, MD, Assistant Medical Director with Partners Healthcare in Boston, an innovative 16-hospital system and teaching affiliate of the Harvard Medical School, and James Elrod, President and CEO of Willis-Knighton Health System in Shreveport, shared their stories and offered key insights to assist organizations in achieving excellence in clinical care.

“At Thibodaux Regional, we are deeply committed to preparing for the future of healthcare. Our success as it relates to the Triple Aim of clinical quality, affordable care, and a great patient experience has been nationally recognized, and our commitment to sharing our process improvements as well as learning from industry experts prompted us to create this event,” said Greg Stock. “I believe everyone who attended left with actionable ideas and valuable insight on how to better navigate the sea of change.”

Thibodaux Regional Medical Center hosted Innovation Summit ’18 in partnership with Health Catalyst, a healthcare outcomes improvement company. More than 150 physicians and healthcare leaders from across the country attended the two-day event.
