Aloha Hawai'i-Pacific Chapter

I'd like to begin once again by issuing a heartfelt thank you to all of our health care leaders and staff. The work you have all been doing and the pace you've been sustaining are unprecidented.

We have had to adjust our plans and programs to accommodate the pandemic, including, sadly, cancelling the Leadership in Action Conference. However, we want to ensure you that we are doing as much as possible to support our members' needs for ongoing education and development. As such, we are excited to offer a virtual Hawai'i Cluster this fall. This program will consist of two separate sessions, each broken into 4 1.5-hour long programs. Each session will afford participants 6 F2F credits.

The first session, Leading Strategic Change, will be presented by Brown University Adjunct Senior Lecturer Jim Austin, and will provide attendees with the tools to make solid decisions and optimize strategic changes when faced with uncertainty. Session 1 will take place on 10/28, 11/4, 11/11 and 11/18. The second session, Leading in a Changing Environment: Focus on Population Health, will be led by Dr. Jonathan Burroughs, President and CEO of The Burroughs Consulting Network, Inc. This session will present case studies focused on various ways in which organizations are navigating the movement into a capitated population health environment and working collaboratively to improve the health, experience and care costs of defined sub-populations. This session will take place on 11/24, 12/1, 12/8 and 12/15. Registration for both sessions is limited. For more information, please click here or email Kristen Croom at kcroom80@gmail.com 

Please watch for information regarding our annual member meeting, which should be coming to you soon. As always, please let us know if you have any feedback, thoughts or suggestions or would like to volunteer to assist with future education events by emailing kcroom80@gmail.com . Mahalo for your support and commitment to ACHE Hawai'i and our community.

 

With regards,

The Education Committee
