  • HHI Series: Success at Tenet Health Care

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 12/03/2014

    Recorded on 12/02/2014 - Wellness initiatives are getting a lot of attention right now, due to the obesity epidemic and costs associated with treatment of chronic disease. Sustainability initiatives are also getting increased attention with a level of leadership engagement like we’ve never seen before.

    Session Description

    Wellness initiatives are getting a lot of attention right now, due to the obesity epidemic and costs associated with treatment of chronic disease. Sustainability initiatives are also getting increased attention with a level of leadership engagement like we’ve never seen before. As Gary Cohen, the Founder of our sister Organization HCWH says, you can’t have healthy people on a sick planet – so as we learn more about the connection between planetary and human health, the more we see the potential for collaboration on wellness and sustainability activities. Both offer opportunities for staff engagement, satisfaction, quality and cost savings. Sustainability initiatives are only as successful as the number of staff that is involved with them – it’s a team effort – so joining wellness and sustainability is another opportunity to further leverage both programs and help align them with the strategic direction of the organization.

    Learning Objectives

    • Understand how Tenet engages staff in wellness activities.
    • Understand the potential to reduce health care costs through prevention and wellness activities
    • See the connection between wellness program and employee engagement.

  • CM13C2 - The Role Of The GPO In Building a Sustainable Food System Supply Chain

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    This presentation will focus on the story of a Canadian GPO that turned this barrier into an opportunity to generate more than $1 million for local farmers in Ontario.

    For many healthcare organizations, group purchasing organizations (GPOs) are seen as a barrier to the procurement of local and sustainable food. This presentation will focus on the story of a Canadian GPO that turned this barrier into an opportunity to generate more than $1 million for local farmers in Ontario. Although there were challenges encountered along the way, the achievements made the hard work worthwhile, and the lessons learned in the process are transferable and relevant to any healthcare food service setting. The lessons that will be explored include: driving up demand through education, building connection back into institutional food systems, RFPs and contracts that pave the way for local food, and celebrating easy wins and "low hanging fruit."

    Mr. Brendan Wylie-Toal ;The Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care
