HBA St. Louis Presents the 2019 Healthcare Leadership Symposium

Please join us to celebrate HBA St. Louis’ 10 year anniversary and to learn from exceptional leaders on ways in which they both impact and influence healthcare leadership. This outstanding, must-attend, half-day program consists of an opening session with 2019 HBA St. Louis president, Amy Van Buren, followed by a panel of founding HBA members and past presidents discussing the past, present and future of healthcare. Then, a myriad of critical topics, including behavioral health, value-based care and digital health will be explored in break-out panel sessions.

Past, Present & Future of Healthcare Panel:  

Break-out sessions: 

Panel 1 – Digital Health: A Driving Force for New Solutions & Engagement Across the Health Continuum
One of the most far-reaching and exciting advancements in the healthcare industry is with digital health. Digital health holds the promise for radically changing the way we engage with patients, payors and providers and how we deliver healthcare. Join us for an evening dedicated to a better understanding of what digital health is (and isn’t), how it is being utilized across the healthcare landscape today and how this will affect the way we work in the future.

Panel 2 – Value Based Care: Improving Quality & Outcomes for Patients
As our healthcare industry moves away from fee-for-service and towards a system of value-based care, healthcare organizations and professionals are faced with a rotating door of changing payment requirements, systems and laws. It can be confusing, challenging and at times daunting to keep up. It's critical for executives across all areas of healthcare to have an understanding of where the industry is headed and how value-based care and payment reform may impact the industry and their organization.

Panel 3 – Behavioral Health & Social Determinants
The vast majority of factors that contribute to health and well-being are socioeconomic and behavioral in nature. The reality is that zip code is a better predictor of health than genetic code. And with over 20 percent of the adult population suffering from some type of mental illness, reform is essential. Psychiatric care has largely been isolated from mainstream healthcare, despite the dramatic increase in cost incurred by patients with depression as a comorbidity. Integrating policies and programs across public health, social support services, education, employment and community development domains increases the prospect for improved health and overall well-being in our communities.
