Success in a payment environment driven by patient outcomes and high-quality care depends on having a well-developed workforce with exceptional clinical, management, and leadership skills. In this session, the speakers will describe how the High-Impact Leadership Framework from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) was used to create a company-wide people charter for an organization that serves older adults in over 200 skilled nursing and outpatient facilities across 14 states. The presenters will discuss how the company worked to create a culture of ongoing development and a core set of essential clinical behaviors in frontline clinicians to deliver improved patient care consistent with the Triple Aim. The presenters also will discuss the importance of frontline managers in the performance improvement process and share their approach to aligning all stages of the manager development cycle to maximize the impact of individuals in these critical roles. Finally, the presenters will describe how the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership was chosen as a leadership development model for the organization and has been used to develop leadership behaviors throughout the organization in a multistage rollout approach.
