President's Message
Pamela M. Sinclair, FACHE

THEF members and colleagues,

I hope your summer is going well. We were thrilled to have our summer educational event at Forsyth Medical Center this past week, on July 13. The topic was "Walking the Public Reporting Minefield" and we had a great discussion. The moderator was Dr. Kevin Healy, the VP for Quality Improvement at Forsyth Medical Center. He did a wonderful job leading the discussion with our 3 panelists, who were Dr. Mary Jo Cagle, the Chief Quality Officer and EVP of Moses Cone Health System, Aaron Rose, the Director of Quality Resources from Alamance Regional Health System, and Teresa Smiley, the Public Reporting Data Manager for Novant Health System. The discussion was very interesting, talking about how labor intensive this data tracking is for an organization, and if it is really driving better clinical outcomes. They discussed the different public reporting databases and which ones truly reflected good outcomes versus which ones were more "marketing" driven. In summary, it was apparent that there would be much more public reporting requirements to come, and that more and more of the public will rely on the Internet for the health information and to make their healthcare choices.

Stay tuned for our next quarterly educational session in late September.

As a reminder, the 2011 THEF Board of Directors are as follows: Pamela Sinclair, FACHE, President; Sam Seifert, President-Elect; Preston Hammock, Treasurer-Secretary; Wendy Hicks, Director; Johnny Veal, Director; and Paul Jeffrey, Immediate Past President.

Have a great summer!
