Provider Brings Dynamic Perspectives To Quality Symposium

Curated by Provider magazine, the LED—Lead, Engage, Discover—Talks are aimed at bringing topics and ideas that are provocative, inspirational, and sometimes disruptive. As explained by moderator Greg Crist, who is Provider’s publisher and AHCA’s senior vice president of public affairs, the goal of this event is to help people break out of “group think.” “Group think,” he said in his intro, “is the practice of thinking or making decisions as a group in a way that discourages creativity or individual responsibility. The more esprit de corps there is among the members of a group, the greater the danger that independent critical thinking will be replaced by group think.” Instead, Crist said, Provider has gathered “this incredible group of people, all of whom have unique and powerful stories that together offer an inspirational and innovative perspective on quality in long term and post-acute care.” With that, Crist challenged the audience to “be prepared to break free of group think and feel inspired!” Below are the nine, 18-minute talks that were given on Monday, Feb. 23, 2015, at the AHCA/NCAL 7th Annual Quality Symposium in Austin, Texas.
