Trish Anen, Principal and APC Workforce Practice Leader, will present with Catholic Health Initiatives at the American Hospital Association's (AHA) 25th Annual Leadership Summit.
The presentation is entitled "The CHI Journey: A Team-Based Advanced Practice Strategy to Open Access and Lower Costs". This session will explore how Catholic Health Initiatives worked across its 18-state organization to implement an innovative and collaborative team-based primary care model that expanded physician-to-advanced practitioner staffing to at least 1:3. The presenters will share the strategies and structures developed to ensure long-term sustainability including leadership roles, committees, governance structures, and communication plans. They also will review key findings from the Center for Advancing Provider Practices (CAP2TM) latest assessments of APC utilization and leadership structures in acute care and ambulatory organizations.
