  • ACHE Has Taken Action to Eliminate "Heartbleed" Vulnerability

    As you may be aware, sites and services across the internet have been impacted by a recently discovered vulnerability in OpenSSL known as “Heartbleed.” OpenSSL is software that secures traffic between computers on the web.

    As your professional organization we value our partnership and want to make you aware of the action we have taken to ensure the security of our systems. Upon learning of the threat, we expeditiously reviewed all of our systems, concluding that ACHE’s exposure was limited. Steps were then taken to eliminate the vulnerability to our systems.

    We are not aware of any compromise (successful attack) of our systems or data; however, in light of the Heartbleed vulnerability, many experts are recommending individuals change their passwords on websites they frequent. If you would like to change your ache.org password, please use the "Change Username/Password" link on this page and fill out the form.

    Be assured ACHE takes proactive steps on an ongoing basis to secure member data. Questions about Heartbleed or ACHE's data security measures in general may be directed to Kimberly J. Mosley, CAE, vice president, Management Information Systems, and CIO, at (312) 424-9410 or kmosley@ache.org. Thank you.

Host a Summer Intern to Cultivate Diversity in Healthcare Management

The Institute for Diversity in Health Management is looking for host sites to participate in its Summer Enrichment Program. The program places promising, minority graduate students in immersive internships at hospitals and medical centers, giving the students a real-world internship experience.

Acting as a host site in the SEP helps cultivate diversity among future leaders, allowing the healthcare field to better serve communities. Participation in the SEP also demonstrates that a hospital is committed to inclusive cultural diversity in the healthcare profession, and the facilities get an early opportunity to recruit these top students from accredited national health training programs.
