A Hawaii-Pacific chapter social event took place on Thursday, March 13th from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at the Queens Conference Center. Members who recently passed the exam shared their experiences and assisted members interested in preparing for the BOG exam.


Attendees for the March 13 FACHE Board of Governors Exam Session 

The Hawaii-Pacific Chapter of ACHE held a panel discussion in conjunction with the Hawaii chapter of the Healthcare Financial Management Association on Monday April 21, 2014 about Physician-Hospital integration in the 21st Century. The moderator for the discussion was Mr. Steve Robertson, Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer for Hawaii Pacific Health.  Panelists included Dr. Whitney Limm, The Queen’s Medical Center; Mr. Money Atwal, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Information Officer for Hawaii Health Systems Corporation East Hawaii Region; and Dr. Gerard Livaudais,  Executive Director, Hawaii Health Partners (Hawaii Pacific Health).  Panelists discussed the various models which are evolving in the Hawai’i civilian healthcare sector to meet requirements resulting from the Affordable Care Act and accompanying payment reforms. The various models, from hospitals aligning with independent physicians and physician groups to physician-led accountable care organizations, seek to help physicians and hospitals surmount the tremendous challenges and demands that face the healthcare sector. Attendees received 1.5 face-to-face education credits.
