Plan Customized On-Location Learning for 2019

Schedule an ACHE On-Location Program for 2019 today to ensure the continuous development of your healthcare management team, ACHE Chapter, state or metro hospital association, alumni group, or other organization.

On-Location Programs are customized ACHE seminars that can be brought directly to your organization. ACHE coordinates faculty and materials while your team conveniently earns ACHE Face-to-Face Education credits and develops their skills in areas of interest such as leadership development, community health and involvement, financial management, health systems and delivery, medical staff relationships, public policy and quality/patient safety.

ACHE has everything you need to know about program formats, planning, pricing, accreditation and more. For more information, contact Catie L. Russo, program specialist, Division of Professional Development, at crusso@ache.org or (312) 424-9362, or fill out an ACHE On-Location inquiry form.

Powerfully Engaged Physicians Are Keys to Success

Physicians are crucial in driving clinical transformation leading to experience, breakthrough quality and financial performance, says Mark J. Werner, MD, national director of clinical consulting, The Chartis Group. However, many of these leaders may not have the financial background to assess the direct investments for improving patient care that will also meet required financial benchmarks. Read more from Dr. Werner and Richard Priore, ScD, FACHE, president and CEO, Excelsior Healthcare Group. You can also join them for a two-day in-depth discussion, Closing the Gap in Physician Engagement, Alignment and Integration in a Value-Based Environment at ACHE’s Copper Mountain Cluster, Jan. 14–17, 2019.
