This year’s HTU theme embodies HealthTrust’s strategy for success

In brainstorming ideas for possible themes to embody the essence of this year’s HealthTrust University Conference (HTU) in Las Vegas, we selected Playing to Win—Aligned for Success, Optimizing Outcomes. Research revealed that the first element of this theme is also the name of a business framework developed by Roger Martin and shared in his 2013 similarly titled bestselling business book, Playing to Win.

Martin defines strategy as “a cascade of tightly integrated choices that uniquely positions a player in its market to create sustainable advantage and superior value relative to the competition.” The parallel here coincides nicely with HealthTrust’s sustainable advantage, reinforced through a broad array of solutions that we implement daily as operators of one of the nation’s leading healthcare systems.

Provider needs are our business

We understand the everyday business needs of providers because we too are on the front lines and behind the scenes in both acute and non-acute healthcare settings across the continuum of care—from hospitals, ASCs, physician offices and freestanding ERs to urgent care clinics, imaging centers, outpatient labs, and multispecialty and long-term acute care settings.

Many of the subject matter experts who work at HealthTrust have also served as clinicians, administrators and operators for some of the nation’s leading healthcare systems. I’m honored they are working for us in partnering with members and managing innovative solutions designed to meet providers’ biggest challenges.

Key performance categories

If your organization is looking to optimize outcomes, now is an ideal time to align around our performance improvement capabilities. We have teams to help with Supply Spend, Pharmacy Benefits Management & HR Solutions, Clinical Performance, Labor, Commercial Products, Purchased Services and Facilities & Energy.

Making missions possible

If you are attending HTU in Las Vegas, stop by the HealthTrust Village in the exhibit hall, and talk with our experts about how we can partner to embolden your play-to-win strategy.

For those of you not attending HTU, please contact your HealthTrust Account Manager to have that conversation. Wherever you serve your community, we’re privileged to serve you and determined to get results for your organization. Know that HealthTrust is on a mission—yours!
