What we're about

Thanks for checking out our group! We wanted to create a group/place to bring together sales and marketing professionals in the healthcare industry.

Northern IL and Chicago have so many amazing healthcare companies, from large suburb-based institutions in med device, pharma, med consumables, and insurance - to startups and incubators located here in the city. There is a lot to offer and this space is intended to help build, maintain, and grow the networking relationships between professionals in our industry.

Events are simple and laid back. Once a quarter (approximately) we plan to gather for drinks/aps at a local bar or restaurant. Questions? Suggestions? Please feel free to reach out to an admin anytime!

Outside Networking Event: Measuring in the Hospital Setting

McDonald Hopkins LLC

Hi All, This is NOT one of our official meetups but a suggestion for a great event for anyone in Chicago & IL Healthcare Professionals (Sales & Marketing): Measuring , "Mismeasuring", and Remeasuring in the Hospital Setting https://www.meetup.com/Chicago-Technology-For-Value-Based-Healthcare-Meetup/events/262444292 Summary Measuring, Mismeasuring, and Remeasuring - Creating Meaningful Key Performance Indicators in the Hospital Setting. With this presentation, we will explore the various scorecards and dashboards used by hospitals to drive performance and efficiency. The importance of selecting internal or external benchmarks, setting goals, earning physician buy-in and reaching out to the experts are all critical steps on this scorecard journey. These scorecards whether it be for quality, patient safety, finance, or throughput are now frequently more flexible to keep up with constantly changing regulations. Despite all efforts for one data source, more often than not the metrics are developed from several information systems. These key performance indicators are primarily driven by value-based care with the goal of improving patient outcomes. No metrics are perfect and more often than not leaders make decisions with the best available information which may be directional at best. These metrics can have unintended consequences -and at what cost to the patient experience? Patient satisfaction is becoming an increasingly more important component in the value-based care model. What works best is a patient centric culture, engaging all hands on deck, constantly learning combined with some healthy competition.
