Building Physician/Executive Leadership

Building an Exceptional Physician/Executive Leadership Team is a special one day workshop offered by NHPCO in collaboration with the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Physicians that will help hospice and palliative care physicians and executive leaders build an effective working relationship. Building an Exceptional Physician/Executive Leadership Team will be held Wednesday, April 20, 2016, from 8:30am to 5:00pm.

Regardless of whether a professional has “chief” in his or her title or not, every hospice program has a physician and executive leader. This new program is designed by national hospice leaders to assist senior executives in developing and strengthening this key relationship. The esteemed faculty offers thoughts on the importance of this vital relationship and why it is crucial to a highly functioning hospice organization. 

As the hospice industry increasingly demands measureable clinical excellence and sound business management, synergy and mutual support between the CEO and CMO are essential. This conference will provide a shared foundation from which these key leaders can join forces to ensure a successful, viable organization.

Everything rises and falls on leadership and the two top leaders in most hospice organizations are the CEO and the CMO.  Their competency as leaders and their chemistry as a team will make or break most organizations.  That is why this conference is a must attend.  Get the tools and techniques you need to ensure your organization is successful in that realm.

"The CMO just doesn’t understand the pressing financial situation we’re in," states the CEO. "The CEO doesn’t get the fact that we’re overworked and understaffed," says the CMO. These are the type of comments I hear all the time. To have an effectively run hospice organization it is critical to have these two positions working together to enhance overall operations, hence the creation of the CEO and CMO Intensive.

A right decision today may not be right tomorrow. In the new health care economy, CEO-CMO functionality is the equivalent of the oil pipe in an industrial economy. Developing, nurturing, and building a strong, agile, and skilled CEO-CMO leadership team should be a key organizational priority. Attending this course could be the best investment your hospice could ever make.

Learn how to leverage effective leadership within the “white water rapids” of today’s hospice environment. Online registration for the CEO-CMO intensive is open until March 31; after that date, on-site registration will be available. This intensive is being offering in conjunction with NHPCO’s annual Management and Leadership Conference, April 21 – 23, 2016, at the Gaylord National Harbor Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.
