As the demands of health reform drive change in all areas of healthcare delivery, hospital leaders are focused on transforming their organizations through strategies that simultaneously increase revenue and sharply reduce costs. Lean principles offer leaders a management system and methodology that improves team engagement, eliminates road blocks, and allows hospitals to improve the quality of care for patients by reducing errors and waste streams, including wait times. It is a systematic approach to reducing costs and risks, while simultaneously setting the stage for growth and expansion.

Please note: this is a two-session program, participants should plan to attend both sessions.  The second session is being held on Friday, June 10.

Breakfast and lunch will be served on both days.  Registration and breakfast begin at 8:30 a.m.

Financial Skills for Managers
Friday, June 10, 2016

Connecticut Hospital Association, 110 Barnes Road, Wallingford, CT 06492

Fees:

  • Acute Care Hospital Member: $225
  • Other Member: $250
  • Non-Member: $300

Because healthcare delivery methods and payment systems are changing rapidly, carefully managing the financial health of the organization is more important than ever. Resources are scarce and stretched to the breaking point. Doing more with less is routine. The need for sound business and financial management tools—survival skills—is paramount for all managers. These include planning and budgeting, financial analysis, and maximizing resources, all of which are essential if managers are to achieve the institution’s mission and contribute to “bottom line” results. Bill Ward, a popular and dynamic lecturer on financial management in healthcare is back by member request to present the program.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.  Registration and breakfast begin at 8:30 a.m.

In partnership with the Hispanic Health Council, the Saint Francis Center for Health Equity, and the Connecticut Association of Healthcare Executives, CHA is again pleased to offer Cross Cultural & Diversity Inclusiveness Training (CC&DIT)—a unique, comprehensive, and interactive program to achieve the goal of improving cultural competence in the delivery of care and addressing healthcare disparities.

The CC&DIT curriculum was developed in direct response to member requests for help in providing diversity education and is structured as a two-module program, each session five hours in duration—delivered once each week over a two-week period. Training content is based on current research that emphasizes the idea that cultural competence is not achieved through a single training event—but is a lifelong commitment to learning, and professional skills development. With over 200 members completing the training, program evaluations have been consistently positive about the value of this training.

The program provides an opportunity for hospitals who have taken the AHA #123 Equity Pledge to Act to Eliminate Healthcare Disparities to meet the requirement for training staff in cultural competence.

The second session will be held on Friday, June 24, 2016.

This program is being held at the Connecticut Institute for Primary Care Innovation (CIPCI) in Hartford.

Connecticut Hospital Association, 110 Barnes Road, Wallingford, CT 06492

Fees:

There is no fee for this event.

A cause of readmission, and medication errors, is the incomplete dissemination of information about patients’ medications and the lack of medication management by patients and care providers during the transition from hospital to home. Come hear innovative solutions to apply in your organization from experts in the field of medication management.

The program is being presented as part of the Partnership for Patients HEN 2.0 educational series.

Because of a CMS directive that prohibits CHA from providing meals to participants, CHA will invoice your organization for the actual cost of coffee, a continental breakfast, and a light lunch for those registered.  There is no charge to CHA members for the program or materials provided to participants.
