|Meet our New Physician Representative|
I am honored to have been named the first Physician Executive to the Hawai‘i ACHE Board of Directors. While medical training teaches physicians how to interact, diagnose, and treat patients, it teaches next to nothing about health care delivery and leading change.
I am a pediatric hospitalist part time and family centered care is the cornerstone of pediatrics. The other part of my work is in clinical informatics where teamwork is the only way to accomplish improvements in EMRs and health information systems. Multidisciplinary teamwork for family care and in information technology is similar to what I see among ACHE members collaborating to provide the best health care for our unique situation here in Hawai‘i.
I have found the ACHE materials and the Hawai‘i Chapter members invaluable in learning some of the tools needed for physician executives to help lead change for our families here in Hawai‘i. I think many physician executives would also benefit and increasing physician membership and participation in our chapter is my goal. Feel free to send me opportunities to connect with physicians executives who you think may be seeking an opportunity to network and collaborate.
Once again, mahalo for the honor for serving as the physician executive on the Hawai‘I ACHE Board of Directors.
James Lin, MD
