Nashville General Hospital

NASHVILLE, TN — Nashville General Hospital is poised to become a national leader in integrated care delivery systems.

Nashville General Hospital Chief Executive Officer Joseph Webb, D.Sc., FACHE along with Eric Stephens, Chief Analytics Officer and Dorothy Bennett, Chief of Ambulatory Services, will share the hospital’s innovative approach to patient care on Thursday, June 20 during the VITAL 2019 Conference in Miami.

“We are excited about the opportunity to show how we’ve been able to serve a diverse patient mix at Nashville General Hospital,” Webb said. “For the past few years, we have shifted our approach from the reactive nature of acute care to an emphasis on prevention, wellness, and disease management. This approach has proven successful, and we look forward to sharing our model on a national stage.”

VITAL is the only national conference that brings together leading essential hospitals and systems to share best practices for care delivery, innovation, and equity. Nashville General Hospital is among 31 presenters selected to explore key issues, including behavioral and population health, hospital financing, patient safety, and quality improvement. Annually, VITAL selects the most inventive healthcare providers to share best practices with top essential hospital and health system administrators across the country.

The Nashville General Hospital trio will present as part of the conference’s ‘Innovations in Healthcare’ track. 

The session will discuss how the hospital used the patient-centered medical home model – informed by the Chronic Care Model (CCM), an evidence-based framework that has been widely adopted as an effective approach to implementing integrated, patient-centered care delivery systems – to employ a rigorous and systematic process of care delivery to a diverse set of patients.
