NCHE C-Suite Roundtable

Thursday, November 7th, 2013 | Time: 5:30. – 8:00 P.M. | Marvin Center, George Washington University

Sponsored by the George Washington University, please join the National Capital Healthcare Executives (NCHE) for the annual C-Suite Roundtable. The theme for the Roundtable is integrating the principles of patient-centered care. Patient-Centered Care (PCC) has emerged as a way for healthcare organizations to achieve better quality and lower costs. Evidence shows that PCC is the preferred care, which leads to the highest quality care and the most cost effective care for the patient. Why an Integrated Approach? All patients are very unique and none fit in the “one size fits all” model. To achieve at least satisfactory patient outcomes it takes multiple disciplines to assess each patient as an individual biological, social, psychological, economic, ethnic and spiritual being. Healthcare organizations and healthcare executives should understand that only PCC will lead to quality and cost effective care. Learn how your organization can achieve the goal of patient satisfaction and maintain the highest quality of care.
