Johnson & Johnson Institute Hosts First EMEA Hospital Leadership Symposium
The world’s aging population and the increasing prevalence of chronic disease is placing more strain on healthcare systems than ever before. In response, models of healthcare delivery are changing to ensure the best possible patient care at lower costs.
To facilitate the transition to value-based healthcare strategies, 115 hospital leaders from 33 countries came together at the Johnson & Johnson Institute EMEA Hospital Leadership Symposium in Hamburg, Germany. The inaugural event brought both clinical and non-clinical perspectives to the table by sharing scientific knowledge, ideas and best practices from pioneers across the region.
Over the course of two days, the program focused on key aspects of value-based healthcare and on strategies to optimize efficiency and effectiveness, and to deliver measurable results. Hospital leaders highlighted the importance of developing a strong digital strategy to capture data from disparate sources and analyze it to gain insights to advance care.
Care Designed Around Patient
Day 2 of the event was dedicated to patient safety. The topic was examined through several different angles, including safety through better precision, better processes in the OR, peer review and the World Health Organization (WHO) Surgical Safety Checklist.
Attendees were also given the opportunity to learn more about capabilities from the Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies that are designed to support value-based care models, including:
- Surgical Process Institute (SPI) – a way of standardizing surgical workflows to minimize variability in a surgical procedure, thus improving surgical procedure efficiency that aims to improve patient outcomes and recovery
- C-SATS Surgical Skills Improvement System – an approach that is designed to enable surgeons to continuously assess and improve their performance through objective feedback. Users can record and upload their surgical videos that are then confidentially reviewed by trained experts who offer personalized feedback. The platform, which is currently available in the U.S. and has already demonstrated value in some of the nation’s largest health systems, is also being piloted at the Hamburg facility.
- CareAdvantage Value-Based Hospital Solutions – an ecosystem of services & solutions designed to bring value and help hospitals achieve the triple aim of improved outcomes, increased patient satisfaction and lower delivery costs.
“The Johnson & Johnson Institute is committed to helping our hospital partners meet the opportunities and challenges of value-based healthcare through collaboration across the continuum of care,” said Filip Standaert, Vice President, EMEA Education Solutions. “We greatly appreciate the contributions of all those who made this inaugural program so meaningful.”
Kathryn Sweyer, Director of Marketing for C-SATS, discusses the benefits of using the C-SATS platform to assess and improve surgical skills.
