Healthcare Heroes Shine During Hurricane Matthew
Throughout the devastation of Hurricane Matthew and in the days following, we were reminded of the resilience of North Carolina's healthcare systems and their dedicated employees. From operating on emergency power to supporting those who have been evacuated from their homes, those organizations impacted by the storm demonstrated their unwavering commitment to serving their communities. Thousands of hospital employees continue to care for their neighbors, despite their own circumstances. NCHA, through the North Carolina Hospital Foundation, established the North Carolina Hospital Employee Assistance Fund to provide aid to NCHA member hospital and health system employees impacted by the storm and its aftermath. Thanks to the generosity of donors, we raised more than $120,000 to support member hospital employees across eastern North Carolina in rebuilding their homes.

NCHA High Performance Health System Collaborative
Health system leaders and care teams are overwhelmed by the pace and scope of effort required to transform their organizations to meet the new expectations of “value” and financial risk. The transformation requires a deep understanding of current vs. future capabilities, and the ability to establish a thoughtfully sequenced strategic plan that achieves measurable value at a pace that matches the workforce’s readiness to change. In partnership with The Dartmouth Institute, NCHA has launched a High Performance Health System Collaborative that helps each member define the key objectives and supporting capabilities required to transition from the current state to a higher level of readiness for emerging risk-based payment models (i.e. North Carolina’s Medicaid Reform plan, Accountable Care Organizations, etc). For more information on the collaborative, see the attached flyer or go to https://www.ncha.org/high-performance-health-system.
