Over the next three months, CAHME will release a series of nine videos on our web site that examine the views of key stakeholders around developing the next generation of healthcare leaders. The video series will explore the following topics:
- Why Accreditation Matters;
- CAHME as a catalyst to foster continuous improvement in education and broadening this role globally;
- Non-hierarchical leadership and the importance of diversity;
- Leadership in community health, and the healthcare environment transitioning to fee-for-value;
- Mission-driven leadership and the influencer as leader;
- Understanding healthcare teams, the use of healthcare data, and changing clinical competencies;
- Competency-based accreditation; and
- Communication across stakeholders, adapting to ambiguity, and creating agile leaders.
Our introductory video features myself and CAHME’s first president, Gary Filerman, discussing what healthcare leaders will need in 2068 and the importance of values in restoring the vitality and integrity of healthcare leadership.
A companion white paper called “Getting to 100: Preparing Healthcare Leaders for the Next 50 Years” will be released by late November. Combined with our video series, we hope that these materials will provide insight to our programs, faculty, healthcare professionals, and students as we meet our mission of advancing the quality of graduate healthcare management education.
A special thanks to the Dawn Gideon Foundation for underwriting the video series. Honoring the memory of Dawn Gideon, herself a graduate from a CAHME-accredited program at the University of Pittsburgh, the Dawn Gideon Foundation supports CAHME in its mission to advance the quality of graduate healthcare management education. The video series honors her legacy by focusing on education of healthcare administrators who, like Dawn, will be role models for compassionate and intelligent leadership.
Thanks also to Saint Louis University which underwrote the white paper, to GE Healthcare for its financial support for the videos, and to Business of Healthcare for its partnership in the video production.
