EntreTech 2/18 Panel-worthy; Hospitals Want CEOs w/o Healthcare Experience | ChiefExecutive.net

FYI, to learn more about our Feb 18th EntreTech Forum panel, please visit www.entretechforum.org.

The CEO magazine article is not truly surprising since there are new opportunities and challenge emerging in healthcare, including topics to be covered at our Feb 18th panel:

  • Cultural evolution from healthcare at any cost to the best blend of quality and cost
  • Enabling, foundational technologies such as EHR/EMR providing a platform for a cultural evolution within healthcare

From the article, “a trend that appears poised to sweep through the hospital industry. Hospital boards increasingly want that outside perspective, along with some different skill sets – and are willing to hire outside of the industry to get it.

It’s expected that two-thirds of hospital CEOs hired this year will have little to no healthcare experience, according to Black Book Rankings, which last year conducted a poll of 1,404 human resource officers and board members of healthcare organizations. That’s up sharply from 19 percent in 2009.
