September 9, 2014

Collaboration supports networking and education for physician leaders

Lansdale, PA–Hayes, Inc., a leader in promoting better health outcomes through the use of evidence, is pleased to announce that it has become an Education Partner with the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE), the nation’s largest healthcare organization for physicians who hold leadership and management positions within their organizations. The partnership enables Hayes, Inc. to host a webinar around the ACPE Fall Institute in November 2014; an information session at the Spring Institute in April, 2015; and a focus group at the Summer Institute, to be held later in 2015.

“This alliance will allow Hayes to establish and nurture relationships with physician executives who will be the leaders for change within their organizations,” says Winifred S. Hayes, PhD, President and CEO of Hayes, Inc. “We will be able to hear from them directly about the challenges they are facing in their institutions. Similarly, through this partnership physicians gain opportunities to learn more about how they can incorporate evidence into their processes to deliver safe, high-quality health care that results in improved patient outcomes.”

ACPE believes that physicians are uniquely positioned to improve health care. Through its programs, products, and services, ACPE provides opportunities for physician executives to develop their leadership and management skills. As an Education Partner, Hayes, Inc. supports ACPE’s mission to help ensure that physicians continually grow as individuals and become successful healthcare leaders. Explains Dr. Hayes, “Our goal is to assist physician executives to move forward in their efforts to adopt and comply with evidence-based practice guidelines, reduce conflict over physician-preference items, improve value-analysis efforts, and drive out wasteful costs in their organizations, while simultaneously delivering world-class patient care.”
