WASHINGTON DC, USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE -- MAY 20, 2022: At the Institute for Advancing Health Value, we believe the key enabler for the future of our industry is workforce readiness to deliver on the promise of high value, high quality care that delivers equitable outcomes for all. A significant challenge for any industry transformation, especially one as far-reaching as the shift to value, is workforce sufficiency. The scale and impact of workforce skill and knowledge is either a force multiplier or an impedance for change. Health system CEOs agree, as illustrated in the recent 2022 Health Systems' Climate Study confirming that 90% of CEOs are prioritizing upskilling their existing workforce to better serve diverse patient needs.
Given the critical need to understand the new knowledge, skills, and abilities required for value-based care delivery, the Institute has developed educational programs to support reskilling and upskilling at scale. In partnership with the College of Health Professions at Western Governors University (WGU), the Institute, has developed competency-based certificate programs in Value-Based Care (currently available) and Population Health Equity (available June 13, 2022) to meet the needs for value transformation. This curriculum was developed by industry experts and will prepare you to succeed in the future of care delivery - one that is patient-centered, relationship-based, and technology-enables. Those who complete either of these programs will be bestowed the prestigious designation of Merkin Scholar, named in honor of Dr. Richard Merkin.
