SNI Transitions to Its Next Chapter
With full implementation of the Affordable Care Act only months away, the CAPH Board is reexamining the fundamental role and offerings of the Safety Net Institute (SNI) in light of the new health care landscape facing public hospital systems.
The Board has engaged a national leader, Bruce Vladeck PhD, to work with us and help re-imagine SNI and develop the next chapter for the organization. Bruce is currently a consultant for Nexera Inc., and has extensive experience and expertise on a wide range of matters for health care organizations. He previously served as HCFA (now CMS) Administrator under President Clinton during the Clinton reform efforts, served on the Board of the New York City Health and Hospital Corporation, served as Interim President of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey which ran a large public hospital in Newark, and is a member of the Institute of Medicine. He will be speaking with CAPH leaders from every hospital and health system, and working with both the CAPH and SNI Boards to complete the development of the next chapter of SNI by mid-June 2013.
As SNI’s Interim Executive Director during the transition, I am working with CAPH President and CEO Melissa Stafford Jones and SNI staff to share our experience and expertise with Bruce, as well as continue the facilitation of current programs during this transition period, including DSRIP Reporting, Patient Experience, the Lean Learning Community, IHI Scholarships and ITAC – our EHR adoption project.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
