Joseph Cacchione, MD, FACC, Executive Vice President, Clinical & Network Services, Ascension, will be on a panel titled “Medical Group Management: Top Issues and Strategies” at Becker’s Hospital Review’s 8th Annual CEO + CFO Roundtable this fall.

In advance of the conference, Dr. Cacchione spoke with Becker’s Hospital Review about improvements needed in healthcare, including moving more quickly to adopt new ideas and approaches.

“One of the biggest misconceptions is that more is always better,” he said. “This is not always true in healthcare and is not only unrealistic but is unsustainable and has resulted in skyrocketing healthcare costs,” Dr. Cacchione said.

At Ascension, a key focus is improving clinical quality by engaging and empowering physicians, connecting clinical excellence to financial performance, and delivering the right level of care, at the right time, in the right place, he said.
