Quick tips for presenting

When we present information to a committee, we are attempting to transmit the information as well as receive a response in return. A lack of response is often a result of poor communication. A successful presentation will reflect clear objectives. Be sure to choose appropriate points of emphasis in your presentation and to include the necessary level of detail.

Additionally, in order to get a response from audience members, presentations must include the necessary information. Try to anticipate what questions may arise. If you are requesting the purchase of new credentialing software, provide statistics showing the number of providers credentialed, the amount of time currently spent, and the cost savings that would result from implementing the new software. If you want the members of a committee to approve a clinical map, show them the projected beneficial effect on patient care and cost savings to the hospital. Be sure to provide the detail needed for an informed decision to be made.
