2-Day Summit Will Bring Together Top Hospital Executives and Focus on Patient Safety and Service Excellence
RARITAN, New Jersey and SINGAPORE, May 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, a global leader of in vitro diagnostics, in collaboration with Singapore Management University, will host the fourth annual Ortho-SMU C-Suite Summit. The two-day conference, May 14-15 in Singapore, is tailored specifically to senior hospital leadership in Asia-Pacific countries and will focus on the most important factor to any health care organization: patients.
During this year's summit, titled "The CEO Agenda on Patient Centricity," hospital executives will have the opportunity to participate in two days of thought-provoking discussions around three key themes, including:
- Patient safety: How to ensure patient safety through error management and reporting.
- Patient service excellence: How to improve quality of overall service delivery and patient satisfaction by measuring and constantly improving service levels.
- The internal and external financial perspective: Making the case for investing in patient safety and service quality.
"We're thrilled to collaborate with SMU Executive Development to host another thought-provoking summit for hospital executives in Asia-Pacific," said Zachary Ballard, head of regions LATAM, Japan and ASPAC, and Ortho Careâ„¢. "Patients are a top priority in any health care organization, especially a hospital, so it's important for decision makers to come together to discuss key topics, share best practices and, most importantly, push boundaries to improve overall patient safety and service quality."
Now in its fourth year, the Ortho-SMU C-Suite Summit has grown tremendously since its inception in 2015. Featuring focused groups of attendees and speakers, hospital executives will have the opportunity to network with senior leaders from different industries, listen to thought leaders from world-class faculty, and participate in interactive programs and workshops designed to leverage every participant's expertise.
"Patients trust health care professionals with their lives, so it's critical for hospital executives to come together and discuss important topics and issues around patient safety, quality and overall experience," said Katharina Lange Ph.D., executive director at SMU Executive Development. "This summit is important to us, and we're proud to collaborate with Ortho to bring together top executives for a productive and rewarding networking and learning event."
The Ortho-SMU C-Suite Summit is by invitation only. For more information or to express interest in attending future events, hospital executives can click here or contact Jasmine Tan at SMU.
