On Thursday, February 14th 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EST, Session 255: The Power of One: A Transformational Journey will be presented. Here is a brief synopsis of the session contents:
Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services in Grand Rapids Michigan is the largest free-standing behavioral health system in the United States. For the past year, the organization has been laser focused on creating a unified Pine Rest known as “One Pine Rest”. This new strategic plan drove a full clinical and organizational transformation forcing silos to work together, a major renovation of clinical and financial support, governance, change management and staffing models. The new EHR implemented was completed in the fastest time on record at 9 months! Throughout the implementation their service lines including inpatient/partial hospitalization, residential and outpatient would be THE transformational catapult for the organization. This session is an opportunity to share a story of how an EHR implementation effort jump started the journey to be a unified organization; to recognize that shared success blurs divisional lines and continued success requires a diverse and collaborative team.
The HIMSS Annual Conference Education Committee selected over 300 educational sessions on the conference program. Proposals under review by the ACEC have gone through a peer-review selection process for enhanced efficiency and quality in selection of the educational offerings at the conference. This committee, comprised of HIMSS volunteers, reviews and selects all presentations with those representing an organization or non-commercial interest given preference, a guideline followed to achieve continuing medical education or CME requirements.
