Here are the courses available under the Management & Leadership education track at the 2015 NAHC Annual Meeting & Exposition:
How to Use Lean Principles to Drive Organizational Excellence
This presentation will give practical examples of how to reduce waste in your system processes in order to focus on excellent operations and deliver high-quality care to clients. When well executed, lean principles can transform quality for the better and create a culture of continuous improvement. We will provide a template for leaders to implement lean management philosophy in assessing their current state, identifying areas where they need to reduce inefficiency, and ensuring their focus is on clients.
How to be Ready for Future Success: A Presidents’ Forum
Hear the predictions of nationally prominent presidents representing health systems, VNAs, and for-profit and publicly traded companies, along with a leading consulting firm. This provocative forum has been updated from the popular 2015 session. Faculty will debate diversification strategies, describe what success will look like in 2015 and 2016 and discuss the implementation of health care reform, cost reduction strategies, and much more.
How to Build a Case Management System that Leads to Success
Learn how to adopt a case management model driven by goals instead of the less effective task-oriented approach many agencies take. The keys to this successful model are planning care in a proactive way and having the multidisciplinary team collaborate throughout the entire episode. Taking these steps will boost productivity, outcomes, and the bottom line, besides increasing customer and employee satisfaction. It’s all simple when you know the secrets for implementing a case management system that works.
How to Communicate Organizational Change
Explore the theory and practice of organizational transformation and the leadership needed to make successful change. This presentation will describe the change process, needs assessment for innovation, SWOT analysis, and the short-term wins of successful organizational change.
How to Attract and Develop Clinicians and Leaders for Growth Oriented Post-Acute Services
Analysis and lessons learned over 30 years of program development experience will leave attendees with tools and resources to analyze the growth readiness of their leadership and clinical team. This presentation draws from clinical leaders who have implemented specialty programs across the nation. We will explore how establishing clinical benchmarks, measuring outcomes, developing clinicians, and building teams can benefit an agency.
How to Prepare for the Future of Complex Care Management
Health care delivery in the United States is changing at a rapid pace. Most providers realize the fee-for-service system will likely be completely replaced by a value-driven system in the near future. In keeping with this knowledge, health systems are experimenting with various models of care to find a model that will successfully address patient outcomes, patient satisfaction, and overall cost of care. Many of these models highlight the value of post-acute care services. This session discusses the driving forces for change and depicts some of the emerging models of care, including a model developed in a mid-sized health care system in Illinois. The model presented is one that emphasizes communication and collaboration across providers on transitional care, longitudinal care planning, home care and home-based services, as well as full use of the continuum of care. The model focuses on complex and/or chronically ill patients at high risk for readmission, undesired outcomes, and increased costs.
How to Provide Home Care for Patients in Retirement Communities
Caring for patients in retirement communities involves developing a plan for managing the patients’ unique needs. It also depends on developing the unique provider partnerships associated with retirement communities.
How to Become a High Performing Leader
Your leadership skills may be the most important thing you bring to your employees and organization, so let’s take time to put effort into getting better! In the intense pressures of our days, it is often hard to look inward and see how our actions are affecting our organization.

The best part of your job can be helping your employees develop in their roles and perform at an exceptional level!
