November Issue; Becker’s Hospital Review 6th Annual Meeting

November Issue. We are proud of our November issue of Becker’s Hospital Review, which is centered around the topic of benchmarking. In the next few pages, you’ll find the annual list of 200 Hospital Benchmarks, which includes a range of operational and financial measures for hospitals to gauge their performance. The issue also contains a roundtable with health system CFOs, an examination of why and when benchmarks can get problematic and a story on how the shift from inpatient to outpatient volumes may affect hospitals’ financial ratings and performance measurement.

The November issue also contains a diverse mix of feature stories, such as the ultimate CFO dashboard, an examination of why CIOs rarely become CEOs and a feature story exploring hospitals and health systems’ recruitment of board members who live miles away. Our writers caught up with Dr. Farzad Mostashari about his thoughts about ACOs, learned more about the story behind hospital-backed capital funds and gained insight as to why more hospitals are adopting horizontal leadership structures.

6th Annual Meeting. Becker’s Hospital Review is hosting its 2015 Annual Meeting in Chicago, May 7-9. More than 150 hospital and health system executives are speaking at the event, which will feature more than 100 sessions on hospital and health system strategy, finance, leadership, physician alignment, the patient experience, health IT and much more. Keynote speakers include Joel Allison, CEO of Baylor Health Care System and Baylor Scott & White Health, Kevin Lofton, CEO of Catholic Health Initiatives, and Nancy Schlichting, CEO of Henry Ford Health System, among many other bright minds and talented leaders. The meeting will be held at the Swissôtel in Chicago, just off of Michigan Avenue.
