Dr. Brian D. Wong  

Doctor, Author

As one of the most sought after authorities on improving the patient experience, safety and culture, organizations rely on Dr. Brian Wong to take the guesswork out of building and maintaining patient-centered organizations.

Dr. Wong built and proved the case that to become patient-centered, an organization must first become patient-accountable, and everyone's role (organization-wide) must be aligned to what matters most to patients.

He then took his 35 plus years of findings a step further. He wrote a book to bring attention and clarity to the challenge we all face and designed a system to remediate the reasons why many of us experience spotty improvements in patient safety, episodic service excellence and insufficient engagement and accountability.

In his latest book on the subject, Heroes Need Not Apply, Dr. Wong gives healthcare organizations a template for creating effective, coordinated team-based care that leads to Patient-Accountable Culture...the prerequisite to becoming more patient-centered. It introduces the tools every executive, physician, nurse and staff member needs to make specific changes at the local level. It uses relatable characters to showcase effective patient centered skills to improve efficiency, decrease costs and improve the patient experience.

Brian Wong keeps his audiences engaged with the interactive nature of his sessions, his heartfelt anecdotes and sharing the results of the proven system he's created. Along with his real-life stories of change and success, he introduces the tangible solution that makes it all possible, the Patient-Accountable Culture System (PAC).

Why Your Culture Is All The Strategy You Need

Every organization strives to become more patient-centered, and the road to becoming more patient-centered begins with developing a Patient-Accountable Culture. This cannot be left to chance. Building and growing a true patient-centered organization requires a bulletproof cultural strategy. To do so, organizations must treat their cultural strategy as priority one. Doing so will improve the performance of the entire organization including care coordination, quality, safety and the patient experience.

During this keynote the audience will experience a personalized cultural SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) and discover assessment tools which provide clarity on the current state of your culture and pinpoint how to become a more patient-centered organization. Each participant will develop a better understanding of how organizations can measure and maintain an organizational culture by focusing on the handful of actions and behaviors that matter most to patients.

The primary focus of the session is to identify, assess, and connect the individual and team skills that drive cultural performance. We'll discuss the current state of measuring just about everything, leaving us with multitude of data with little direction geared toward implementation, versus measuring the applicable patient-centered attributes that drive cultural change and matter most to patients.
