IHI Session for CEOs and Trustees
Many thanks to Tony Chen for inviting me to write a guest column over at Hospital Impact about a session Paul Wiles, left, CEO of Novant Health in Winston-Salem, NC; and Greg Kutcher, right, CEO of Immanuel St. Joseph's Hospital in Mankato, MN; and I held at the IHI National Forum in Nashville. Jim Reinertsen ably handled the master of ceremonies job. The point of the entire session was to emphasize that final accountability for the quality and safety of patient care in a hospital lies with the CEO, with important backing from the Board of Trustees.
