New York (PRUnderground) July 17th, 2012

HealthLeaders Media, a division of HCPro, Inc., today announced that the North Shore-LIJ Health System will host a unique half-day program designed to educate hospital and health system executives about how they can re-invent their women’s health service line to meet evolving patient demands.

The event will be held at the North Shore-LIJ’s Katz Institute for Women’s Health in New York City, on August 9, 2012, from Noon to 3 p.m. Eastern Time. The cost to attend is $399 per person.

The live event, “A Comprehensive Women’s Health Service Line: Lessons from North Shore-LIJ,” can be attended either in person or by logging into a live webcast. With the practical insights from a panel of senior executives from North Shore-LIJ who will share best practices, participants will learn how to:

  • Plan, build, and operate a women’s health center of excellence;
  • Move beyond OB/GYN to offer programs tailored for women, in cardiology, neurology, endocrinology, radiology, urology and rheumatology;
  • Teach each hospital department to refer, communicate and coordinate for the benefit of women; and
  • Build community education programs tailored to women’s health needs and concerns.

“In just a few hours, participants in this program will learn directly from leaders at North Shore-LIJ, founders of the Katz Institute for Women’s Health, how to position their women’s health programs to meet evolving physician and patient demands,” said Jim Molpus, strategic relationships director at HealthLeaders Media.

The North Shore-LIJ Health System is the nation’s second-largest, non-profit, secular healthcare system, and cares for people of all ages throughout Long Island, Queens, and Staten Island — a service area encompassing more than 5 million people. The system founded the Katz Institute for Women’s Health and has made available for download a free case study regarding how North Shore-LIJ reinvented their Women’s Health service line.

The event is part of a series of HealthLeaders Media Rounds focused on various topics of concern to hospitals and health systems nationwide. HealthLeaders Media Rounds provide healthcare leaders with access to in-depth insights, analysis and recommendations on specific challenges facing the industry. Using a case study format, Rounds events feature an array of leaders from host facilities who collectively share insights on how they have accomplished a particular initiative. This wide-angle view provides healthcare leaders with the ability to incorporate real-world solutions learned from the event into their own systems.
