Seats Are Still Available for the HANYS/Cornell Physician Leadership Program
Seats remain available for the HANYS/Cornell Advanced Executive Leadership for Physicians program beginning May 7-9 in New York City.
Advanced Executive Leadership for Physicians is an effective and efficient way to continue to elevate your executive leadership skills. Policy and program review, combined with advanced learning, peer interaction, and the use of assessment tools for long-term individual leadership development make Advanced Executive Leadership for Physicians a distinctive program that will add depth and breadth to your individual leadership capabilities.
In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by AXIS Medical Education and HANYS. AXIS Medical Education is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
AXIS Medical Education designates this live activity for a maximum of 32.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
HANYS’ Organ Donation Awareness Web Page Features New Resources
As you make plans for April’s National Donate Life Month, we encourage you to visit HANYS’ organ donation web page. This web page features a toolkit of new resources and ideas to support your efforts to promote organ donation, as well as a call-to-action video message from HANYS President Bea Grause.
Hospitals and health systems are key to informing staff, patients, families, and the community about the newly updated New York State Donate Life Registry, where enrolling to be a donor is now faster and easier.
HANYS continues to support organ donation through public awareness, advocacy, and policy. We recognize our members for all they do to save and improve lives through donation and transplantation. Contact: Donna Evans
Innovation Spotlight—Jamaica Hospital Medical Center is Reducing Readmission Rates
Jamaica Hospital Medical Center reduced readmissions among frequent inpatients with a model it developed through the Medicaid Accelerated eXchange (MAX) program. The model’s focus is on patients with four or more inpatient hospitalizations within a 12-month period.
To learn more about this program and its results, read the full story here. This story is just one of the many initiatives profiled on HANYS' NYS Triple Aim website that demonstrate how New York healthcare providers are improving population health, enhancing the quality of patient care, and reducing the cost of healthcare despite fiscal constraints.
HANYS to Serve on National Organ Donation Campaign Team
HANYS was invited to serve on the Workplace Partnership for Life (WPFL) Hospital Campaign Leadership Team.
