Leading through Health System Change is an online planning tool that assists leaders in thinking through the tough questions that arise in daily practice as a result of health system transformation. The tool is new and improved for 2016, thanks to support from the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The planning tool is intended to heighten learning capacity and leadership skills in relation to health and health system transformation. Central to the tool are two key components. The first is a five-step planning process. The second is understanding technical and adaptive challenges. The tool has been updated with fresh content to reflect regulatory and other changes since its original July 2013 launch, and fresh examples have been added to reflect transformation activity that has taken place around the country. A maternal and child health module has also been incorporated into the main flow of the planning tool.

During this Web Forum, our presenters will demonstrate what is new in the planning tool, walk participants through the online experience, and describe how adaptive leadership is more important than ever as health system transformation continues to unfold. This session will be useful for public health professionals, hospital representatives, health care providers, managed care, and other cross-sector health stakeholders.
