We are excited to be hosting live events again, including the annual HealthTrust University Conference (HTU). The HealthTrust Member Education team is working with more than 80 presenters to deliver a quality slate of education programs for member attendees who will join us July 25–27 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Priority was given to this year’s theme, Boldly Forward, when subject matter experts selected programs for the 2022 education slate.

From standardization & utilization to physician engagement

Product standardization in healthcare can offer an array of benefits, from optimizing patient outcomes and minimizing waste to boosting cost savings. Members of HealthTrust’s Clinical Integration team have partnered with other subject matter experts to offer a six-program track that explores key components of a comprehensive approach to value analysis. Keep the value analysis track in mind when you register for HTU sessions.

Physician presenters

On July 26, I’ll moderate a physician panel that will offer insight into successful approaches to quality improvement. Joining me for “Quality Improvement Initiatives & Engaging Physicians in the Process” will be Physician Advisors Ashley Mays, M.D.; V. Seenu Reddy, M.D., MBA, FACS; and Steven Gremillion, M.D., FACC.

As you select the other education sessions to attend during HTU, look for those featuring the following HealthTrust Physician Advisors: Genevieve Everett-Sigwalt, M.D., MBA; Erik Mikaitis, M.D.; Jason Mouzakes, M.D., FAAP; and William Sistrunk, M.D., FACP.

Shift of Care

Part 2 of the Shift of Care Summit will take place during HTU on July 26. Healthcare executives interested in attending the summit or participating in a peer focus group should contact their HealthTrust Account Manager or Kim Wright, RN, AVP of Clinical Services, at

Advisory Services

One of the teams for which I’m responsible at HealthTrust is Advisory Services. Led by VP Rick Phillips, this team offers solutions for members in the areas of value analysis, supply chain, pharmacy, operating room and lab operations. (See “Spotlight on Savings” for more about the savings and improved performance opportunities your organization can achieve from engaging with these consultants.) A newer offering for us is in the area of lab optimization. In “Getting Lab Results,” learn how our comprehensive approach helped Trinity Health successfully impact the financial and operational performance of its labs.

I look forward to seeing many of you in July at the conference. If you can’t be with us in person, visit the education site in August for content from many of the live programs.
