Message from Your ACHE Regent
Winter/Spring 2021

Aloha,

As my term comes to an end, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for an amazing three years as the Hawai‘i-Pacific Regent!! Time really does fly by when you are having fun learning and sharing experiences with leaders throughout the chapter. Of all the accomplishments we’ve had these past three years, I must say our ability to offer virtual face-to-face credits has been the standout! I will not be far away and plan to remain active in the chapter.

Please join me in welcoming Micah B. Ewing, FACHE, Director of Technical Architecture & Innovation for Hawai‘i Pacific Health, as the newly elected Regent. I’m positive Micah will do an outstanding job for the Hawai‘i-Pacific ACHE Chapter and beyond.

Here is to seeing everyone soon after we’re all been vaccinated ;).

Message from the Chapter President

Andrew Giles, MBA, FACHE


Aloha Chapter Members,

I trust you folks had a good holiday season, and hope 2021 is off to a prosperous start.  As we reflect back on the last 14 months of this pandemic, it is no understatement to say that our lives have been completely changed.  In the early months, we focused on PPE shortages, establishing protocols, and testing. Then, it shifted to managing the summer surge, ensuring patients were receiving top quality care and keeping our staff safe.  Now, we’ve transitioned to an “all hands on deck” vaccination effort. The millions of lives lost to Covid-19 is a tragedy, yet we find solace in knowing there will be end to this pandemic through immunization.  I applaud you and your teams for all for the tireless work, the long nights, and weekends that have been needed to keep our community in Hawaii safe.

The local ACHE chapter continues to be here to support you folks in your healthcare journey.  One of the greatest strengths of our chapter and community, is how connected we are.  Despite not being able to host social events over the past year, I still receive many emails and calls from members across the islands.  I encourage us to make those bonds with other members, to share best practices, and improve the healthcare in our community.  Despite the pandemic, our Hawaii-Pacific Chapter membership roster remains strong and continues to grow.  In other news, the first ever virtual ACHE Congress just wrapped up in late March, and it was filled with inspirational content and superstar speakers.  Our local board continues to devise new ways to keep us connected in this virtual era, we will be hosting an upcoming (virtual) leadership development program in late April, registration details coming soon.  The annual AONL/ACHE event typically hosted at the Kahala Hotel will also be cancelled for 2021, but our ACHE chapter is hoping to plan in-person events by years end.  Please continue the great work, and hope to see you all again soon. 

If I can be a resource, you would like to get more involved in the local chapter, or you just want to connect, please don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email.  (808)-763-8544 or Andrew.T.Giles@kp.org.

Thank you,
 
Andrew

Resourcefulness: A Key Leadership Skill

As leaders, we are called on to pivot quickly in a crisis—often more rapidly than we are comfortable with—finding new ways to meet goals and encouraging adaptability among team members. Now more than ever, it is the skill of resourcefulness that can provide value to organizations and drive leaders and their teams to a higher level of success.

Resourcefulness in Action
In times of crisis, resourcefulness is even more essential. In November 2019, Great Plains Health experienced a cyberattack that shook the organization at every level. The 116-bed, independent health system was fortunate to have good leadership and expertise in its information systems department, on its medical staff and among the senior leadership team to guide the organization through the incident. Successful handling of this crisis also came from the resourcefulness of its leaders. 

The Great Plains Health team showed resourcefulness largely by leaning on the relationships and trust it had previously built with regional and national experts on its EHR, security and software suppliers, insurance carriers, media, physicians, leaders of other health systems who had experienced similar cyberattacks, and a great many others. Without strong relationships and the ability to weave those relationships together in a meaningful and effective way, the health system’s cybersecurity incident could have been catastrophic. Intentional or not, the work that went into critical relationship-building before the crisis even occurred strengthened leaders’ resourcefulness skills and became invaluable in a time of need. Relationships are an essential component of resourcefulness, and leaders are advised to spend time developing them. 

Just three short months later, the COVID-19 crisis began to emerge. The healthcare organizations managing this crisis well are those who have strong, resourceful leaders in place. They own their roles and the outcomes that they can directly affect through effective accountability. They plan ahead using good time management practices and develop game plans for varying situations by effectively pulling together stakeholders and facilitating discussion and quick resolution. 

In the early days of the COVID-19 surge, the Great Plains Health team quickly realized it would need to rely on a different way to deliver patient care. Telehealth was the answer, but it took a team willing to be open-minded to a new and different way of delivering care to pull it off. It also took a team that had strong, existing relationships with physicians, outreach clinics and hospitals, patients, and telehealth vendors.

Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, it has been resourcefulness that has allowed the health system’s leaders and team members to stay nimble and find workable solutions to many challenges. When the organization was short on masks, it figured out how to set up a reprocessing center. When it struggled to secure face shield shipments, it collaborated with local schools and libraries to use 3D printers to make its own. When hand sanitizer ran low, the health system worked with local liquor distilleries to find an alternative. 

Fine-Tuning Resourcefulness
Leaders at every level can also enhance their resourcefulness skills by taking on projects or assignments that require them to stretch outside their comfort zones, working specifically in the areas of relationship-building and problem-solving. Leaders can also strengthen their resourcefulness by scanning industries outside healthcare for creative solutions and new ideas. Surrounding oneself with intelligent people at all levels and from many different disciplines to create contacts who can be called upon in crisis can help a leader become more resourceful. Finally, senior leaders can identify resourcefulness in emerging leaders and help them grow this skill so it can be naturally drawn upon during a crisis.

What Does Resourcefulness Look Like? 
Resourcefulness in leaders emerges when they do the following eight things: 

  1. Help their organizations look beyond how they’ve always done things and become focused on doing things differently in the interest of doing better. 
  2. Are unapologetic for needing help finding solutions to challenges. The best ideas often emerge when multiple disciplines and varying levels of leadership come together. 
  3. Are willing to get in the weeds and learn how things work. When leaders can truly understand problematic processes, they are better able to find more effective solutions. Leadership in healthcare does not come from sitting behind a desk; it requires walking around and finding out how and why the work on the front line is done. 
  4. Dare to ask questions instead of settling for “oh, they’ll never go for that.” Supporting research and good presentation go a long way in persuasion.
  5. Are open-minded to new possibilities and understand that not every problem is solved by adding full-time employees. Resourcefulness is about optimizing the organization’s existing resources and working with them in more effective ways.
  6. Relentlessly build a network of professionals whom they genuinely care about, learn from and trust. Through this network, they can develop an inner circle of problem-solvers in varied professions, organizations and industries that they can call upon for counsel. 
  7. Practice good time management and get things done. They rise above the state of busyness and fiercely protect designated time to think through challenges facing the organization. 
  8. Humble themselves and remain steadfastly focused on organizational improvement, not on their egos and turf.

When healthcare executives cultivate the skill of resourcefulness, they become better leaders and ultimately create better outcomes, especially in a crisis. When healthcare leaders get better at being resourceful, the field as a whole improves.

Accomplishments Build Careers

One of the most impactful check-ins is a periodic progress report at a regularly scheduled meeting of key members of the leadership team.

Individuals may believe they deserve a promotion (e.g., “I have been a director for 10 years, and I deserve to be a VP!”). Unless they can demonstrate the ability to deliver tangible results and benefits for an organization beyond their current position, however, individuals should not be promoted. 

Setting and Tracking Goals
There are numerous factors to consider when crafting annual goals. Making the goal a derivative of an organizational strategy, an interest of the executive’s direct supervisor, one that is shared with other executives or one that requires resources wholly contained within the executive’s area of responsibility are excellent options. Garnering required resources and support is more easily achieved when the goal incorporates these considerations.

Executives should know the metrics or impactful qualitative outcomes they want to achieve upfront. It’s also helpful to visualize the accomplishments derived from goals on their resumes. Then, individuals can ask themselves whether those achievements will be impressive on their annual performance reviews or to a hiring manager, regardless of whether a job search is in their career plans.

Executing Goals
First, executives are encouraged to communicate goals to stakeholders who will hold them publicly accountable. Second, delegate responsibilities to stakeholders with clear expectations, specific milestones and regular check-ins. One of the most impactful check-ins is a periodic progress report at a regularly scheduled meeting of key members of the leadership team.

Third, engage a peer who also has an interest in this goal. Share the journey. And fourth, make sure no significant resources beyond what is built into the annual budget are needed. Promises for additional resources evaporate quickly when finances get strained.

It has been all hands on deck as healthcare organizations absorb shifting government recommendations, institute policies and procedures for safety, procure adequate personal protective equipment, build testing capabilities, and care for COVID-19 patients, all while managing steep financial losses. A key for leaders is managing these day-to-day issues while keeping their goals top-of-mind and steadily progressing throughout the year.

Whether a job search is on the horizon or not, driving toward accomplishments that merit inclusion on their resumes will keep leaders focused on their career and perhaps even optimistic as they head into a performance review.

Supporting Continuing Education for Our Members

Aloha Hawai'i-Pacific Chapter,

The 2021 ACHE year for the Hawai’i Pacific Chapter is off to a busy start. We are excited to participate in the first ACHE Virtual Congress March 22-25, 2021. This is a great opportunity to obtain virtual face-to-face credits at a reasonable price. Additional information can be found at ache.org.

Our local chapter will be hosting our 2nd annual leadership conference, entitled “Conversations about Leadership”. This will be a virtual conference held April 29, 30 and May 1 with a 1.5-hour session each day at 12p-1:30p HST. If you are interested in participating in discussions about leadership and how COVID-19 affected your patients and team, please plan to participate. The first session on April 29 is entitled “Crisis Management: Strategies to Effectively Manage a Healthcare Organization.” The second session on April 30 is entitled “Telemedicine in the Healthcare Delivery System.” The third and final sessions on May 1 is entitled “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.” We are still in process of securing speakers and moderators but will publicize the information as soon as it is available. We are also applying for F2F credits, continuing medical education and continuing nurse education credits for all three sessions. We expect to have registration open at the beginning of April 2021 at a cost of $30 per session. Due to limitations on number of attendees we will most likely limit initial registration to 1 to 2 sessions and create a waitlist for additional session requests. Additional information will be available soon.

We are excited that the state of Hawai’i has recently moved to tier 3. We are grateful for everyone’s amazing resilience and flexibility to continue to care for your patients, your family and yourselves during these times. We hope to have an in-person education/networking program sometime soon.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Kristen at kcroom80@gmail.com.

Student Corner

Navigating a Changing Educational Landscape

Jessica Niles, RN-C

Resources and support for ACHE's student members

Aloha everyone -

It’s hard to believe that we’re already more than halfway through the spring semester, nearing the end of what has been a uniquely challenging school year. We hope that all of our student members are well.

Educational experiences have taken many new forms this year. Many of us explored distance education, working with our program directors and instructors to navigate the complexities of virtual learning. Students in clinical programs found ways to obtain clinical experience with highly restricted access to hands-on opportunities. Schools and students responded in most cases with aplomb – drawing upon their creativity and passion for learning to maximize available resources, pioneer new systems, and support one another throughout.

Student life has also assumed new challenges and dimensions. Perhaps you’ve had to find ways to get school work done while simultaneously home schooling children, working from home, struggling to pay bills, assisting family and friends, etc. No matter what your unique experience, this year has been arduous.

As we arrive at Spring Break, there are signs that some semblance of normalcy, or a new baseline, are on the horizon. Hospitals are welcoming back students and interns, teachers are getting vaccinated. Whatever this year has been like for you, know that we applaud you and send our support. Watch the website for opportunities for virtual learning, networking, career development and information.

We wish you all the very best for the remainder of this school year, and new and exciting opportunities to come.
