Message from your ACHE Regent, Winter 2014
Coral T. Andrews, FACHE

The Annual ACHE Congress on Healthcare Leadership is scheduled for March 16-19, 2015 in Chicago and registration is now open.  This year's theme is "Healthcare in Motion:  Leadership Center Stage."  Congress provides a great opportunity for banking your continuing education credits while also providing for robust networking whether you are a seasoned executive or early careerist.  There's something for everyone.


Here's a snapshot of the headlines from the 2015 Congress on Healthcare Leadership Program:

  • "Political Update 2015:  Impact on Healthcare" - With a keen eye focused on the evolving healthcare landscape, industry leaders will hear how key health policy initiatives may take shape following the recent Congressional and State general elections.  Chairman-Elect, Richard D. Cordova, FACHE will greet attendees at the Opening Session followed by an introduction of Stuart Rothenburg, PhD, Editor and Publisher of the Rothenburg Political Report.
  •  
  • "The Future is Already Here:  Will You Jump or Get Pushed" - This session will focus on the competencies that healthcare leaders will need to achieve in order to be well positioned to meet market mandates by 2020.
  •  
  • "Population Health:  Is it Possible for Diverse Populations?" - We were fortunate to receive tremendous support by our sponsors, our ACHE affiliate partners (the Institute for Diversity and the American Hospital Association), and many others in the recent presentation of the Diversity Panel Program. Our panel guests did an outstanding job and reminded us that Diversity at all levels of an organization improves the quality of care.  As Chief Executives, how have you prepared your organizations to optimize the success of population health initiatives which serve your diverse constituents?

Christine M. Candio, RN, FACHE, ACHE Chairman, reminds us that "Healthcare in Motion" provides for new ways to collaborate as healthcare executives.  Change brings challenges but also opportunities.  As healthcare leaders, we strive for quality in the delivery of services to our patients, our communities, and our organizational partners. 

 

We are fortunate to have a vibrant Chapter that is already planning for 2015.  I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Jennie H. Chahanovich, FACHE, who was recently elected as the Incoming Regent, March 2015.  As a former Board Chairman for the Hawaii-Pacific Chapter, Jen brings extensive leadership experience, compassion, and enthusiasm to her new role.  

 

The Chapter Board continues to work diligently to provide meaningful educational and networking programs to its members.  It's a partnership.  Remember that the value of membership in ACHE is optimized when you engage, invest, and commit. Calling all leaders...Center Stage.

 

Hope to see you at Congress!

 

Coral Andrews, FACHE

Regent for Hawaii/Pacific
