28_Improving Healthcare Management with Dan Gentry and Anthony Stanowski
On this week’s episode of The Busy Leader’s Podcast, Dan Gentry, President and CEO of AUPHA, and Anthony Stanowski, President and CEO, of CAHME join me to discuss how their organizations are helping universities build better healthcare administration programs. The Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA) is a network of universities, colleges, faculties, and organizations committed to improving healthcare through healthcare management and education. As Dan says, it is the big tent of academic programs! AUPHA is where academic faculty and staff come to be better teachers and leaders.
The Commission of Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) is a group of educational, professional, and other health sector organizations dedicated to improving the education around healthcare management and administration professionals. Put in simpler terms by Anthony, CAHME reviews the criteria and standards of programs that are educating future healthcare leaders to ensure they are meeting these said standards. He dives into the specific of these standards and what it means to be an accredited program by CAHME.
Together, both Dan and Anthony discuss how their organizations coped during the pandemic and what the future has in store for their members. Whether you are a student, educator, leader, or individual in healthcare, this is an episode you will want to listen to.
