The American healthcare system is experiencing unprecedented change, redefining how care is delivered. In this evolving environment, organizations need innovative leaders with strong decision-making skills, techniques and strategies to successfully evolve.

To help healthcare organizations advance their leadership capabilities, HANYS and Cornell External Education are teaming up to offer The Academy for Healthcare Leadership Advancement.

The Academy combines HANYS’ nationally recognized data analytics excellence and in-depth healthcare system knowledge with the executive education and business expertise of Cornell External Education — the organizational solutions entity of Cornell University, one of the nation’s premiere universities and business schools.

Through The Academy, healthcare professionals gain focused insight on currently pressing healthcare issues, data analytics and cutting-edge business leadership strategies. The seven-week Cornell certificate virtual program provides healthcare professionals with the skills, knowledge and expertise to effectively lead their organizations in today’s complex and changing healthcare environment.

Redesigned to a fully virtual format, Academy participants are given many opportunities to exchange ideas and network with their colleagues in a variety of interactive and engaging sessions.

As fiscal, regulatory and quality pressures mount for healthcare providers, chief executives should consider The Academy as a key element of their organizational development and workforce planning for leaders.
