Class Description

Improving the Health Status of Your Community: Healthcare organizations exist to serve the communities in which they reside. Though community health has always been a focus for these organizations, new regulations require them to take an active role. The health of a community or geographic population has a critical impact on a healthcare organization’s planning, operations, financial sustainability, outcomes and success.  As the key components of the healthcare reform legislation are implemented, it will be even more important that provider organizations are both aware of and responsive to improving the health status and disease states that are most prevalent in their communities. Not only is a population-based focus the right thing to do, but it may prove to be the financially astute course of action.  Join Central Illinois American College of Healthcare Executives, Katherine Shaw Bethea Hospital speakers: David Schreiner, Dr. Tim Appenheimer, Aaron Fox and Christine Scheffler for this 90-minute presentation, including Q&A, to get alignment strategies to thrive in an increasingly integrated industry. Wrapping up the evening with a facility tour of KSB.
