GE, National Center for Healthcare Leadership partner
GE Healthcare and the National Center for Healthcare Leadership (NCHL) said they are collaborating to launch The Institute for Transformational Healthcare Leadership, which will develop an integrated portfolio of educational offerings designed to create and sustain leadership across the healthcare industry.

According to GE, the Institute will evaluate assessment and planning methods, hosting learning programs to systematically develop leaders on all levels of the industry and providing access to comprehensive, onsite guidance and expertise, among other objectives.

The Institute’s vision is to quickly deploy a comprehensive framework for achieving transformational and sustainable improvement in efficiency, quality, safety and access.  The Institute will focus on individually and organizationally empowering healthcare leaders to strategically manage change and create a culture of accountability.

Both NCHL and GE believe the collaboration can accelerate the achievement of the six quality aims from the Institute of Medicine and address the persistent challenges of access, finance, capacity and workforce, which have been clearly defined in recent reports from the Commonwealth Fund and the Agency for Healthcare Research Quality.   

Participants of the Institute, which is scheduled to launch this fall, will also have access to healthcare and industry leaders and management expertise in transformation.
