Education Programs

A portion of donations to the Fund are used to establish educational programs that promote or build awareness around key areas of focus designated by the Fund. In 2015, through generous donor contributions, the Fund will support two compelling education programs.

The Fund continues to be an important resource for high-caliber programming. It is only through your support that we can develop future programs. Please contact Timothy R. Tlusty, vice president, Development, at (312) 424-9305 or, for more information.

An Ethical-Basis Move From Volume to Value

Friday, Aug. 7, 2015
8 a.m.–12:15 p.m.
Held in conjunction with ACHE's New York Cluster

In this changing healthcare environment, an essential task for today's leaders is to move from volume- to value-based care. This organizational shift and new business model may result in unintended consequences including ethical dilemmas.

Join us for a proactive, half-day seminar that will explore effective, intentional and practical ways for healthcare leaders to strengthen their organization's focus on doing the right thing when moving from volume- to value-based care. Expert faculty will discuss the link between ethics, quality and value. Hear firsthand from healthcare leaders who have been faced with ethical challenges and learn from the changes they made in their organizations. This engaging presentation and discussion will provide the opportunity for reflection.


Thriving in Today's Healthcare Marketplace: New Business Models That Work

Friday, Sept. 11, 2015
8:00 a.m.–12:15 p.m.

To survive and thrive, healthcare organizations are finding innovative ways to accept more risk and transform the patient care experience by implementing various approaches to align stakeholders. Healthcare leaders must modify existing business models or create new models to obtain reimbursement and achieve sustainable, long-term success.

In this half-day session, Andrew S. Cohen will provide an overview of new payment models, including value-based purchasing, bundled payments and shared savings, and reveal tactics for managing risk with various types of partners. He will also discuss what key stakeholders (employers, payers and consumers) are facing and doing in response to the changing healthcare landscape and how providers must respond to these imperatives.

Leaders from three organizations will share their insights about steps they followed to implement new models and provide perspectives about the lessons learned.


The Fund also continues its focus on inspiring tomorrow’s leaders by offering scholarships for ACHE’s Senior Executive and Executive Programs.

Some ACHE Executive Program scholarships are underwritten in part by Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.

Programs qualify for ACHE Face-to-Face Education credits.
