News from the Education Committee
Commander Robert Rawleigh, FACHE, Medical Service Corps, United States Navy

Chapter education/networking opportunities are off to a very strong start in 2014.  On February 6, 2014 34 ACHE and non-ACHE members gathered at the Queen’s Conference Center (QCC) located on The Queen’s Medical Center campus to hear from Mr. Ian Lazarus, FACHE (Principal Creative Healthcare Solutions) regarding “Lean, Six Sigma and Culture Change: Ingredients for Success in the New Era of Reform.” Mr. Lazarus conducted a dynamic, well enjoyed 1.5 ACHE Qualified Education program that discussed the principles of Lean Six Sigma. In addition to providing these fundamentals, Ian helped solidify concepts with illustrations from his firm’s consulting engagements that dramatically enhanced his clients’ healthcare operations and the patient and staff environment.  Thank you, Ian. Thank you as well Queen’s and the QCC staff for hosting the event.  Mahalo!

As mentioned during the Winter Newsletter, your input from chapter surveys clearly spoke of the desire for FACHE advancement assistance.  Thank you VERY MUCH for your input… we heard you and took action to meet your needs. The chapter hosted a social and networking event (again, thank you QCC) on Thursday, March 13 at 5:30 – 7 p.m. The event provided an opportunity for colleagues to network, discuss what’s happening in the local healthcare industry, engage other members who recently passed the ACHE Board of Governors (BOG) exam and received the FACHE credential, and, of course, enjoy delicious pupus. The cornerstones of ACHE are networking and educational opportunities so this social was an excellent venue to meet local healthcare executives and colleagues as well as gain insight into what others have done to pass the rigorous BOG exam and obtain the status as a Fellow in ACHE.  More to follow during the next Newsletter regarding this event.

Mark your calendars as other credit earning events are on the horizon:

April 21 - 22: Hawaii Chapter Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) Annual Conference at the Ala Moana Hotel. 
Earn 1.5 ACHE Face-to-Face Education credits during the chapter’s panel discussion on “Physician-Hospital Integration in the 21st Century.” ACHE members are welcome to attend the Monday, April 21 panel discussion at 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. at no charge.  Earn additional ACHE Qualified Education credits if you register for the two-day program and pay the requisite conference fees.

September 15-16 and 17-18: ACHE Hawaii Program.
Earn ACHE Face-to-Face Education credits during the two, separate clusters. Contact ACHE for details and registration requirements.

Finally, please feel free to submit applications for the Chapter Education Assistance Program (CEAP) to earn financial assistance for educational opportunities in support of passing the BOG exam and earning the FACHE credential.

Thank you,

Commander Robert Rawleigh, Medical Service Corps, U.S. Navy (FACHE)
