Aloha Hawai’i-Pacific Chapter!
ACHE's 2018 Congress on Healthcare Leadership provides the opportunity for chapter members to get involved and inspired. We hope you take advantage of attending congress events especially the annual chapter dinner at Quartino Ristorante. Congress will be held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago 26-29 March 2018. A minimum of 12 face-to-face credits are available to members.
Please save the date for the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) Conference, which will be held April 19-20, 2018. A total of 3 face-to-face credits will be available, and topics are currently being finalized. Stay tuned for additional information including registration.
ACHE/AONE will be held for a single day this year. Meanwhile, the committee is hard at work planning an On-Location program for fall.
If you have any recommendations for future events, please reach out to one of our education committee co-chairs! Contact information is provided at the bottom of this article.
Advancement to Fellow Local Study Options:
A key part of our Chapter Mission is to not only grow active members, but also to support the advancement to Fellow as well. Bottom line: we are here to support you!
To meet this end, in 2016, our chapter purchased three sets of the Board of Governors (BOG) Exam Study set as found on the ache.org website (a $240 value). We currently have them staged at Wilcox Medical Center (Kauai), Queens Medical Center (Oahu) and Hawaii Pacific Health (Oahu). Recently, we received a donation set available for us at Kaiser Medical Center! To sign-out for usage, you simply have to be a current member of ACHE, a member in our Hawai'i-Pacific Chapter, and be eligible (or near eligible) to test for the BOG Exam. Simply send me an email and I will connect you with the right POC. Direct POC information will be posted on our website soon!
NOTE: If any other member wishes to donate or share their books with ACHE Hawai’i-Pacific members, please contact me anytime.
Advance to Fellow/Recertification Reminders:
Education Requirements are 36 credit hours (12 Face-to-Face & 24 Qualified Education Credits), every three years if recertifying.
Below are some direct ACHE links to make your advancement to fellow a whole lot easier:
As always, the education committee seeks energetic, detail-oriented individuals to help create, coordinate and/or volunteer at events. If interested, let us know!
