Meeting the Challenge: Growing and Sustaining Wisconsin's Health Care Workforce
The WHA 2022 Workforce Forum will provide an opportunity for hospital and health system leaders and industry stakeholders learn and share ideas for how to grow the health care workforce faster, retain and sustain our healthcare workforce, truly leverage technology, and break down burden and burnout for health care workers. WHA’s expert team will create the framework for the current and future state of Wisconsin’s health care workforce, and participants will leave with an improved understanding of how their organization, healthcare stakeholders and state and federal policymakers can support the changes needed to sustain Wisconsin’s high-quality, high-value health care with a shrinking workforce and growing demand.
The health care sector has been operating through constant change for decades while navigating rapidly advancing technologies, evolving standards of care, changing patient and population demographics, cost pressures, evolving fee and reimbursement models, and complexities in the legal and regulatory environment. With the recent pandemic and significant future change on the horizon, this transformation and disruption creates a need to build resilient and capable healthcare leaders with the skills to successfully navigate the complexities and opportunities of the future of healthcare.
Hospital leaders have a particular need to understand the “business of healthcare” so that they can contribute in more meaningful ways to better patient care, cost management, and effective service delivery.
In response to this need, the Wisconsin Hospital Association, in partnership with the Wisconsin School of Business Center for Professional & Executive Development (CPED), is proud to announce the inaugural program year of the WHA Health Care Leadership Academy.
