Crozer-Keystone Management College Graduates New Class
The Crozer-Keystone Management College graduated its latest class in December. Since 1993, this internal program has attempted to give selected managers a focused learning experience to assist them in their decision-making skills, to give them the ability to collaborate and build relationships with others across functions and entities, and to help them understand health system’s perspectives, processes and its many types of customers.
Managers from throughout the system were nominated to participate by their respective vice-president-level administrator. The members of this “cohort” spent several sessions together between October and December.
Lectures were led by CKHS upper level managers, and a total of 14 different topics were presented. Cohort members also formed into three project teams to create relevant projects that addressed an innovation or opportunity for improvement for the health system. The students conceived and developed the projects themselves and presented them on the last day of classes. This year’s projects included:
* “Process Improvement for Hospital Disaster Preparedness”
* “A Paperless Initiative to Improve Scheduling and Other Processes (e-Faxing)”
* “Cost Containment Initiative: Reducing Expense of Supplying and Maintaining Hospital Scrubs”
Several past presentations have been adopted and implemented within Crozer-Keystone.
