Nashville General Hospital CEO Joseph Webb, DSc, FACHE along with Eric Stephens, chief analytics officer and Dorothy Bennett, chief of Ambulatory Services, were selected to share the hospital's approach to patient care in late June during the VITAL 2019 Conference in Miami as part of the conference's "Innovations in Healthcare" track.
VITAL is the only national conference that brings together leading essential hospitals and systems to share best practices for care delivery, innovation, and equity. Nashville General Hospital is among 31 presenters selected to explore key issues, including behavioral and population health, hospital financing, patient safety, and quality improvement. Annually, VITAL selects the most inventive healthcare providers to share best practices with top essential hospital and health system administrators across the country.
"We are excited about the opportunity to show how we've been able to serve a diverse patient mix at Nashville General Hospital. For the past few years, we have shifted our approach from the reactive nature of acute care to an emphasis on prevention, wellness, and disease management. This approach has proven successful, and we look forward to sharing our model on a national stage," Webb said in advance of the June 20 meeting.
