Interested in becoming a Certified Health Executive (CHE™) and building on your skills?

The College is committed to creating and sustaining a learning environment for its members by offering the only Canadian professional designation available to health leaders. The CHE designation has established the College at the forefront of continuing education for health leaders.

Since its inception in 1984, the CHE program has attracted many of the country’s top health leaders. In fact, nearly half of College members have achieved certification. The development of this capabilities-based program was a collaborative effort involving College members from across the country as well board members and staff. Given the constant changes within the Canadian health system, all elements of the CHE Program are regularly reviewed and revised by the CHE Program Committee and the Professional Standard Council. In 2013, the CHE Program was revised to align with the LEADS in a Caring Environment Capabilities Framework.

Healthcare Management Forum letter-to-the editor: Value-based procurement

(Cet article est disponible en anglais seulement.)

Originally published on www.healthcaremanagementforum.org


Log into the College web site to read the July edition of Healthcare Management Forum. 
Value-based procurement: The tip of the iceberg

Dear Editor-In-Chief,

We applaud Prada’s investigation of value-based procurement, and her advocacy for improving health sector procurement practices.­1 Indeed, the Canadian health sector’s enormous size translates into significant purchasing power. For example, in 2014/15, Ontario hospitals purchased over $5.45 billion worth of goods and services.2 Yet, while there may be opportunities to improve the sector’s ability to access innovative treatments, we encourage Prada and the Conference Board’s Council for Innovation Procurement in Health Care to broaden their understanding of the issues and opportunities arising in health sector procurement. In their pursuit of “value” there is no mention of the opportunities for procurement to promote health, rather than just treat illness and injury. Nor is value-based healthcare framed in terms sufficiently broad enough to encompass the influence the sector’s buying practices have on social, environmental and economic sustainability. We argue the health sector can, and should, take a leadership role in addressing these issues and embracing these opportunities.

Recognizing our members anniversaries: 2014 / Des anniversaires qui méritent d'être soulignés : 2014

(Le texte français suit.)


In our last member Communiqué, the College profiled members that renewed their membership with the College by December 31, 2015 that reached a milestone anniversary. Unfortunately, we were unable to recognize members reaching a milestone anniversary by end of December 2014 as the College was undergoing the implementation of the new member database system. Therefore, we would like to take the opportunity to recognize and congratulate those members at this time as well.

On behalf of the College Board of Directors, chapters and national office staff, it is our pleasure to recognize and extend our special appreciation to College members who renewed their 2014 membership and celebrated a milestone anniversary with the College at that time. We invite you to join us in congratulating these valued members.
