Thursday May 20 ACHE of Georgia Virtual Lunch and Learn

May 20, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Sustainability of Healthcare Organizations:
A Roadmap to Performance Excellence

May 20 Virtual Lunch and Learn Approved for 1.5 Hours of ACHE Face-to-Face Credit!

The Global Pandemic Era’s burning platforms have left healthcare organizations and their leaders, more than ever, with an imperative for tried-and-true frameworks for organizational success. Join us as our panelists look at how you can use the Baldridge and Magnet Frameworks to drive successful outcomes across the organization.

The Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence through The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and, The Magnet Recognition Program through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), provide pathways to role model performance for organizations embarking on these journeys. These frameworks elevate state and national competitiveness through excellence, thereby improving the quality of life for millions of people.

Recipient organizations for the Baldrige Award contribute to the $30 billion in the economic benefit it creates to the US. This national effort continues to grow in importance as even more attention to organizational agility and resilience, diversity, equity, and inclusion, emerging technologies, cybersecurity risk management, and innovation is needed.

Georgia is fortunate to have its first Health Care Baldrige Recipient: Wellstar Paulding Hospital. John Kueven, SVP and President of Paulding Hospital joins our panel to share his team’s experiences.

According to the ANCC, “The Magnet Recognition Program designates organizations worldwide where nursing leaders successfully align their nursing strategic goals to improve the organization’s patient outcomes. The Magnet Recognition Program provides a roadmap to nursing excellence, which benefits the whole of an organization.

To nurses, Magnet Recognition means education and development through every career stage, which leads to greater autonomy at the bedside. To patients, it means the very best care, delivered by nurses who are supported to be the very best that they can be.
