Fall Collaborative Educational Event with Central Texas Chapter

Central & South Texas Chapters’ Fall Collaborative Event

Friday, November 3, 2017

Texas State University – McCoy College of Business, Room #233

3.0 Face-To-Face ACHE Education Credits

 1:00 PM-1:15 PM

  • Welcome (Cristian Lieneck, Associate Professor, Texas State University School of Health Administration)
  • Introductory Remarks (CT and ST-ACHE Chapter Leadership)

1:15 PM-2:45 PM     PANEL #1- Integrating the Principles of Patient-Centered Care

Patient-Centered Care (PCC) has emerged as a way for healthcare organizations to achieve better quality and lower costs. This approach considers the patients’ cultural traditions, their personal preferences and values, their family situations, and their lifestyles. It makes the patient and their loved ones an integral part of the care team who collaborate with healthcare professionals in making clinical decisions and ensures that transitions between providers, departments and health care settings are respectful, coordinated and efficient. When care is patient centered, unneeded and unwanted services can be reduced. A truly patient-centered health care system may provide higher quality healthcare, improve patients’ experiences and increase efficiency.

Moderator:  Karen Kendrick, RN, MSN, Director of Clinical Initiatives, Texas Hospital Association Foundation

  • Christopher L. Pate, PhD MPA CQIA, Director of Quality and Performance Improvement, CommUnity Care

3:00 PM-4:30PM           PANEL #2 – Leading a Successful Multi-Generational Workforce

In today’s complex healthcare environment, a multigenerational workforce presents unfamiliar terrain for healthcare leaders. As a result conflicts may develop in healthcare organizations due to the generational differences in core values and work-related issues. Other factors include economic and political differences, size of each generation’s population, the transition of younger generations to leadership roles and social influences of the generational periods. This combination of factors results in further conflict among healthcare employees. Healthcare executives must take proactive steps to create cohesion across generational segments.

Moderator: Angela Jaco, MHA, MBA, FACHE, CEO, Hamlin Health Memorial Hospital

Panelists:

  • Tony Sanchez, VP for Human Resources, Nix Health System
  • Tommye Austin, PhD, MBA, RN, NEA-BC, Sr. Vice President and Chief Nurse Executive, University Health System

Membership/Networking/Qualified Education Event: Healthcare Executive Career Management in a Web 2.0 Era (Qualifying Education)

The growth of social networking Web sites has been rapid both in their extent of use and in their transformation from informal socializing into media integral to career management. However, healthcare executives must understand that employing social networking media offers advantages and disadvantages. The purpose of this template is to assist chapters in planning a concise panel presentation that exposes participants to how individuals, employers and executive recruiters are integrating the power of social networking in an employment market that has become unprecedentedly demanding. This program examines the current and emerging employment market for healthcare executives from the organization’s and the job seeker’s viewpoints. The session will also explore how Web 2.0 social networking strategies, tactics and tools offer career management opportunities and challenges.

Registration can be found at our Eventbrite site!

Registration Fees: None! This is a no cost event. All members are encouraged to bring a friend or two.
