Leading Transformation for Value‑Based Health Care - Fully Online

Welcome Letter

Greetings prospective participants,

Over the last decade health care organizations have been facing increasing uncertainty and budgetary pressures, which have only been exacerbated by the current unprecedented pandemic. Success in this ever-changing challenging environment will depend on the leadership team’s ability to drive growth, improve patient experience, and collaborate across the organization to oversee health improvements and cost efficiencies across the continuum of care.

The Johns Hopkins Leading Transformation for Value-Based Health Care executive education program is the first inter-professional leadership development course that gives you the skills and tools to lead and manage change for value in today’s health care uncertainty. In light of the ongoing pandemic, the entire curriculum has been moved on-line, leveraging the investments that Johns Hopkins University has made previously for on-line education.

What makes this leadership development program unique? The comprehensive content taught by experts in hands-on, engaging workshops ranges from core concepts in directing teams, successful negotiating, and building trust and includes risk analytics, behavioral economics, and emotional intelligence. The latest healthcare IT developments are explored as well as all facets of value-based financing of care.

Also included is an in-depth look at population health: community health partnerships, primary care redesign, and using population health data to shift to a learning healthcare system. The practical application of developing and adapting quality measurement is essential. Value-based reimbursement models and metrics round out population health modeling of financial applications of risk adjustment. Ethics, behavioral change, and team-based, inter-professional projects ground the content with practical applications.

Grounded in the nation’s #1 Schools of Public Health and Nursing, the renowned School of Medicine, and the innovative Carey Business School, this program will offer the tools and knowledge developing leaders need to have in order to thrive in this environment of constant change. The program structure respects the time constraints of health care executives with an intense three-day virtual introduction in mid-January; followed by weekly evening on-line lectures thru the middle of June; and hands-on experience with team-based projects/simulations.

Let us know if you have any questions and we hope to see you virtually in class!
