Think Tank - 10:10 am - 10:40 am

Mergers and acquisitions continue to move at a rapid pace in Healthcare Organization, meanwhile funding and human resources needed to facilitate the M&A activities remain flat. Penn Medicine has developed a playbook and deployed effective strategies to deal with large scale consolidation efforts. This includes a phased approach to consolidation, establishing foundational items, aligning with technology roadmaps, and getting participation from clinical and administrative departments.
