Donations to the Fund are also used to establish educational programs that promote or build awareness around key areas of focus designated by the Fund. This year, ACHEs Fund for Innovation in Healthcare Leadership presents the following two educational programs to prepare leaders for the changing healthcare environment.

“The Journey to Value-Based Care for Population Health: Sharing, Scaling and Replicating to Accelerate Results”
Monday, August 11
8:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
In conjunction with the Washington, D.C., Cluster

Provider systems are leading health reform from within. As we move from integrated delivery to population health, community systems and academic medical centers continue to share, scale and replicate innovative reform models with exceptional results.

In this half-day session, keynote Stephanie S. McCutcheon, FACHE, will share the successful value-based care journey and innovation/transformation models that have accelerated sustainable change in four healthcare organizations focused on engaging their employees and communities in a culture of health.

The value-based care journey and innovation/transformation models are delivering the Triple Aim, along with a “Fourth Aim” to attract and retain high quality physicians, clinicians and staff. Hear from a panel of healthcare leaders committed to this vision who will share best practices, challenges and critical success factors for population health management. Learn more and register at

“Ethical Leadership in Uncertain Times”
Tuesday, October 28
8:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
In conjunction with the Salt Lake City Cluster

Sustaining and strengthening a focus on doing the right thing every day, everywhere is an enduring challenge for even the most ethical organizations. It is a challenge made even more difficult as stress and uncertainty mount in this time of fundamental change and uncertainty.

Jack Gilbert, EdD, FACHE, will lead this proactive half-day session exploring effective, intentional and practical ways healthcare leaders can address the ethical dilemmas they encounter. A selected group of healthcare leaders will share their experiences with ethical challenges while serving as discussion leaders on topics including: how organizational ethics are created and eroded; the link between ethical decision making and organizational performance; and institutionalizing ethical wisdom.
