Fund for Innovation


Educational Programs Offered Through the Fund

Donations to the Fund are also used to establish educational programs that promote or build awareness around key areas of focus designated by the Fund. In 2014, through generous donor contributions, the Fund supported two compelling education programs.

"The Journey to Value-Based Care for Population Health: Sharing, Scaling and Replicating to Accelerate Results" was held Aug. 11 during a half-day session in conjunction with the Washington, D.C., Cluster. Keynote speaker Stephanie S. McCutcheon, FACHE, discussed the importance of innovative reform models that deliver exceptional results for organizations switching from integrated delivery to population health. McCutcheon shared the successful, value-based care journey and innovation/transformation models that accelerated change in four healthcare organizations focused on engaging their employees and communities in a culture of health. A panel of healthcare leaders also revealed best practices, challenges and critical success factors for population health management.

The next Innovations Program will be held Friday, Sept. 11, in Chicago. Healthcare management innovation is identified by the Fund for Innovation in Healthcare Leadership as a key area of focus. By providing innovative learning opportunities on important trends and issues, the Fund strengthens the field of healthcare leadership.

"Ethical Leadership in Uncertain Times," the Fund's second 2014 offering, took place Oct. 28 in conjunction with the Salt Lake City Cluster. The half-day session, led by Jack Gilbert, EdD, FACHE, focused on the challenges organizations face in upholding ethics and values every day, especially during this time of fundamental change and uncertainty. Gilbert shared practical ways healthcare leaders can address the ethical dilemmas they encounter on a daily basis. A group of healthcare leaders shared their experiences and participated as discussion leaders on a variety of topics related to ethics.

The next Ethics Program will be held Friday, Aug. 7, in New York. Healthcare management ethics is identified as a key area of focus of the Fund for Innovation in Healthcare Leadership. In this regard, the Fund supports ACHE's long-standing commitment to promoting the highest standards of ethical conduct in the field.
