134: How CFOs and CSOs Are Working Together to Solve for Operational Pressures and Business Transformation

Earlier this summer, CFOs and CSOs from Sg2 and Vizient member organizations came together to discuss how to rediscover growth and future-proof their care continuums. In this week’s Sg2 Perspectives, Sg2 Principal Brian Esser, National Vice President, AMCs, Michael Humphrey and Principal Jennifer O’Connor, FACHE, recap what was top of mind at this joint network meeting, including alternative revenue streams (eg, care at home models and direct-to-employer contracting), innovation and strategic capacity, as well as how CFOs and CSOs—and even COOs—can collaborate to navigate the changing health care landscape.

There is a “changing of the guard” happening across the health care industry right now as many hospital and health system CEOs are retiring, making way for a new generation of health care leaders to take over. Thus, on this week’s Sg2 Perspectives, we chatted with Dr John Brumstead, President/CEO of University of Vermont Health Network (UVM), who is retiring in September of this year. Dr Brumsted not only provides advice for future health care leaders and those hospitals/health systems seeking them, but also discusses guiding principles that made UVM successful, as well as the future of academic medical centers.
