Meet the Changing Needs of Patient Populations

May 6, 2015


As the nation's patient demographics continue to shift, implementing objectives of the "Triple Aim" - improving the individual experience of patient care, improving the health of populations and reducing the per capita cost - is of paramount importance in providing equitable, quality care for all constituent communities.   In order to meet this need, it is critical for health care leaders not only to understand the impact of these changes, but to develop sustainable business strategies to successfully manage them.

The Institute for Diversity in Health Management is now accepting applications for the fifth cohort of students in our Certificate in Diversity Management (CDM) program, designed to help diversity practitioners develop leadership competencies needed to bring about change in their organizations and communities. This 12-month program includes online classes and on-site learning forums taught by some of the nation’s leading hospital-based diversity practitioners. Among other areas, the CDM program provides strategies to promote a culturally competent workforce, enhance language services, decrease disparities and increase supplier diversity. The CDM is a recognized credential by the American Hospital Association, American Leadership Council for Diversity in Healthcare and the Health Research & Educational Trust.
