Education Reaches New Heights at the Flight Museum

On Nov 9, 2018, WSHEF offered a unique face-to-face educational session which provided its members 6 ACHE credits. The event was held at the Museum of Flight in South Seattle.  Free admission was provided to the museum so all attendees could enjoy the museum.

The seminar focused on the essential steps to build an effective population health program within your system to meet the growing demands of value based care. The program was led by the expert faculty of Drew Harris, DPM, DPM, MPH, Jefferson School of Population Health Jon Burroughs, MD, FACHE, President & CEO, The Burroughs Healthcare Consulting Network, Inc.  

Approximately 27 WSHEF members learned how to build the infrastructure and business plan to successfully execute risk based capitated population health programs. Breakfast and lunch was provided during networking sessions. Feedback from attendees included very positive reviews of the faculty and many ideas from the attendees of how to implement what they had learned.

Thanks to Karin Larson-Pollock, Brooke Stegmeier and the programing committee for their efforts in this successful educational event!
