OD in Healthcare:
Leading Change on a Changing Landscape

Tonight’s program will provide some examples of current initiatives in OD at several local healthcare organizations – Parkland Health & Hospital System, Children’s Medical Center, and UT Southwestern Medical Center – and reflection on the impact of changes in the healthcare industry on the people and organizations we serve.

Denise Renter from Children’s will present “Engaging Staff through Cascading goals”, overviewing the challenges associated with aligning and cascading meaningful goals to the patient-facing Nurse in the 24×7, 365 days/year world of a Hospital.  The robust process empowers front-line staff to contribute to the strategies required to move the needle on critical Patient Satisfaction and Quality Outcomes.

Glen Earl from Parkland will present “Large Scale Culture Change: The Challenges, Fun, Joy and Disappointments” addressing how OD helped various units at Parkland working together to achieve accreditation with CMS and now preparing to expand and move into their new world-class facility in 2015.

Ben Dilla from UTSW will present “Learning Programs – Large & Small,” an overview of the Academy of Career Enrichment (ACE) that brings all learning– classroom courses, e-learning, and online resources – under one umbrella to enhance visibility and opportunity for all employees, and examples of how ACE resources are being used in OD activities with individuals, teams and departments at UTSW.

Following these short presentations on some of their current work, our three presenters will discuss changes in healthcare – and their implications for OD – and answer your questions.
