Management Innovations

Submissions for the 2016 Management Innovations Poster Session will be accepted October 1, 2015 through January 19, 2016. The poster session will take place at the 2016 Congress on Healthcare Leadership in Chicago on March 14–17, 2016.

We are interested in innovations on issues affecting your organization that might be helpful to others, including improving quality or efficiency, improving patient or physician satisfaction, implementation of electronic medical records, uses of new technology and similar topics.

Take advantage of this opportunity to:

  • Show the areas in which your organization excels
  • Discuss your new programs with other leaders
  • Participate in a healthcare activity that counts toward advancement or recertification in ACHE
  • Interact with other researchers and practitioners
