Register Now for NCHA's Winter Membership Meeting
Registration is open for the 2017 NCHA Winter Membership Meeting on Feb. 15-16 at our NEW meeting location--the Raleigh Marriott Crabtree Valley. The theme of the meeting is "Change Ahead: Building Resilience on the Road to Transformation."
The Ed McCauley Lecture on Wednesday will discuss the role health systems can play in addressing socioeconomic determinants of health. The NCHA advocacy update will focus on the future of healthcare policy under the Trump administration and the priority issues NCHA will be advancing in North Carolina, including our plan to address the behavioral health crisis. On Wednesday evening, we will be celebrating the retirement of NCHA President Emeritus Bill Pully.
Thursday's program will examine the critical issue of resilience. NCHA also will welcome back former NCHA Board Member David Strong, who will share Orlando Health's compelling story of responding to the deadliest mass shooting in recent U.S. history. Then participants will be challenged to consider how the field is supporting and honoring our most important resource - our workforce. For more details on the agenda, see the brochure.
Healthcare Heroes Shine During Hurricane Matthew
Throughout the devastation of Hurricane Matthew and in the days following, we have been 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 continue to demonstrate their 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, has 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. Find out more about the fund and how to donate.

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 is launching 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.
