In today’s ever evolving healthcare marketplace, identifying untapped potential is essential for success. Partnerships emerge through investments, consolidation and public-private collaborations, bringing together payers, providers and patients to improve care and reduce costs. At the heart of this convergence is creativity, building momentum for growth. Through purposeful collisions – industry and academia; entrepreneurs and business leaders; domestic and abroad – convergence drives progress through the development of new technology, product enhancements and radical innovation.
We may be living in a social media-driven marketplace, but personal interaction and customer experience are still critical to the success of any business, large or small. Yet customer service skills are often lacking in today’s workforce, according to Amy Allen, director of the WCA’s Hudson Valley Workforce Academy, created to address the acute gap in workforce skills and help fill 2,500+ jobs in the region. On June 24, the Academy awarded certificates to its latest crop of graduates, who completed the program’s second course, “Managing the Customer Experience.”
The sea change in Westchester County’s healthcare landscape over the past 12 months has been augmented by the notable partnerships established between NewYork-Presbyterian Healthcare System and two community hospitals here: Bronxville’s Lawrence Hospital, and Hudson Valley Hospital in Cortlandt. As Laura L. Forese, MD, MPH, president of NewYork-Presbyterian Healthcare System put it: “We’re changing the way healthcare is delivered. Our new relationships offer opportunities to bring access to our world-class services in New York to the local communities.”
