Zeke’s Which Country Has the Best Health Care in the World? (June 2020), is an examination of ten health care systems across the globe, in search of the best. His most recent book, Prescription for the Future, identifies standout medical organizations that have achieved higher-quality, more patient focused, and lower-cost care, and from their examples distills twelve transformational practices that could transform the entire healthcare sector.

Panel 1:
Technology Innovation Changing the Face of Care Delivery
With the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, there is a necessity to take stock of where the medical community stands on change and innovation, specifically regarding the use of technology. The demand for higher quality healthcare at a lower cost creates an imminent need for change and innovation in healthcare delivery. Healthcare has already seen innovations in the tools used to deliver care, including pharmacy products, medical devices, information technology, and biotechnology products. This innovation has changed and continues to change the way healthcare is delivered. This panel will discuss how health systems are using innovation in technology to improve the value of the healthcare they deliver. Examples may include using technology to improve connectivity, patient flow, provider efficiency, and/or quality measurement.



Panel 2:

Preparing for the Unknown – Ensuring Your Community’s Emergency Preparedness
Healthcare organizations operate in a complex environment. This can be exacerbated when a community faces a local or national emergency, either natural, human-caused, or technological, that thrusts the healthcare system to the forefront of response and makes it the focus of recovery efforts. It is critical that the local healthcare community be actively engaged in the development of comprehensive emergency preparedness plans, training, and exercises to ensure that local organizations communicate and coordinate their mutual support in service to the community.



Panel 3:
The Impact of the White House Administration to Healthcare Delivery
