Going forward, transformation is the lifeblood of healthcare.

A transformation is required to succeed in healthcare’s new era. Healthcare organizations will look to leaders who are ably prepared to transform the industry – those who can energize their organizations, their patients, and their communities to keep people involved and accountable for success in the future. These leaders must be present everywhere – on patient care teams, in the boardroom, on governance committees, and in the community.


The tools needed to lead this transformation extend beyond simply managing people and organizations. Transformation requires information technology, financial skills, project management, and the ability to continuously implement change as unforeseen challenges arise.

Moving from fragmented, silo-based organizations to responsive, value-driven patient care is the lifeblood of healthcare. Creating an environment that supports learning agility and adapting to change is critical transformation capabilities going forward.
