Susan Starling accepting Gavel from Kevin HalterThe Kentucky Hospital Association (KHA) presented several awards during the Association’s Awards Luncheon on May 13, at the 87 th Annual KHA Convention in Lexington.

The highlight of the luncheon was the installment of the 2016-2017 Chair of the KHA Board of Trustees, Susan Starling, chief executive officer of Marcum and Wallace Memorial Hospital, in Irvine. Starling will begin her tenure as Chair on July 1.

KHA’s Award of Excellence was presented to Senator Ralph Alvarado. The Senator has devoted his career to unselfishly serving the health care needs of Kentucky’s citizens and with his “servant” attitude, took this a step further and sought public office, being elected to the Kentucky Senate serving the 29th district covering Clark, Fayette...

The roots of medical practice in the U.S. goes from colonial times to today’s medical profession with its 200 certified specialties. During KHA's Annual Convention, May 12-13 in Lexington, one session will examine the current and historical physician supply and demand trends, training, compensation patterns and practice types. It will also project how health care reform and related changes will reshape the way physicians practice and are paid, with a look at value-based compensation, the team-based approach to care, medical homes, “complexivists,” concierge practice and more.

Speaker Kurt Mosley serves as Vice President of Strategic Alliances for Merritt Hawkins, the nation’s leading physician search and consulting firm, and a company of AMN Healthcare, the largest health care staffing organization in the United States. With over 20 years of health care industry experience, Mosley is one of the nation’s leading authorities on the evolving health care system, particularly the way physician supply, demand...

During the KHA Annual Convention, May 12-13 in Lexington, Lars Enstrom and James Callanan of Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) Healthcare Industry Group will discuss, “How Alternative Payment Methods (APMs) Influence Health Care Delivery Patient Flow, Cost and Quality.”

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has set a goal of tying 50 percent of fee-for-service Medicare payments to quality or value through APMs, such as Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) or bundled payment arrangements by the end of 2018. As payers investigate alternative ways to transfer financial risk and quality accountability to providers, providers need to develop approaches that break down the historic “silo” nature of treatment patterns and develop pathways that respond to the particular pressures of each type of APM while improving the outcomes for patients.  

At the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to:

Learn from early experiences about the necessary activities required to be successful...

During the KHA Annual Convention, May 12-13 in Lexington, the Studer Group's Craig Deao will help attendees close the "Knowing-Doing Gap in Health Care." In 2000, Jeffery Pfeffer and Robert I. Sutton published a book called The Knowing-Doing Gap. It pinpoints a challenge faced by organizations in all industries, including health care. "We work really hard to figure out what we need to do, yet we fail to implement what we learn in the process."

At the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the “Knowing-Doing Gap” in health care
  •  Implement three evidence-based strategic objectives in your health care organization

Make your plans now to attend! Details and registration information are available on the Convention website at http://convention.kyha.com. You can also go directly to the registration page to register today.

Scott Burrows, this year's keynote speaker, will discuss Taking Responsibility: Using Vision, Mindset and Grit to Achieve Success at the KHA 87th Annual Convention, May 12-13 in Lexington.

Burrows is living proof your life can change in an instant. By the age of 19, he was playing college football at Florida State University as a wide receiver and a top-ranked kick-boxing champion, with his last fight broadcast by ESPN.

On November 3, 1984, Scott’s life took a dramatic and irreversible turn. He was involved in a serious automobile accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down and diagnosed a quadriplegic.

Despite his grim diagnosis, Scott refused to be sidelined. He made the decision to take action, to focus on the positives of the experience as opposed to dwelling on the obvious and overwhelming negatives.

With the tremendous clarity provided by his singular focus, Scott resolved to thrive in his life by using three principles:

Vision helped him see complete success in his mind’s eye first.
